Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes has been a frequent feature on the cover of Sports Illustrated, but now it's his wife, Brittany, who is stealing the spotlight. Brittany has been named a rookie for the publication's annual swimsuit issue. The news was shared by both Sports Illustrated and Brittany herself, with the pictures showcasing her in various red one-pieces and bikinis during a photoshoot in Belize.
M.J. Day, the Swim editor for Sports Illustrated, explained the decision to feature Brittany this year, calling her a "modern-day powerhouse" who has surpassed all expectations. Day praised Brittany's accomplishments as the owner of the Kansas City Current NWSL team, a former professional athlete, wife, and mother. Brittany has also founded the world's first-ever dedicated stadium for women's sports.
Speaking about the honor, Brittany expressed her excitement and hoped that her spread would inspire women worldwide. As a mother of two, she wants to convey the message that anything is possible, even things that may seem beyond reach.
The swimsuit issue, set to hit shelves in May, will also feature other notable figures such as social media star and LSU gymnast Olivia Dunne. This exciting news for Brittany comes just days before her husband's highly anticipated Super Bowl matchup against the San Francisco 49ers.
