Pat Mahomes is Mahomes’ father and yes, the two share the same name: Patrick Lavon Mahomes. Like his son, Pat was also a professional athlete. He played as a professional pitcher in Major League Baseball from 1992 to 2003.

In his almost 10 years as a professional baseball player, Pat played for the Minnesota Twins, the Boston Red Sox, the New York Mets, the Texas Rangers, the Chicago Cubs and the Pittsburgh Pirates. Along with his Major League Baseball career, Pat also pitched two seasons in Japan’s Nippon Professional Baseball in 1997 and 1998 for the Yokohama Bay Stars. Due to his baseball legacy, Pat is a member of the Sioux Falls Canaries Hall of Fame.

In an interview with CBS Sports in 2020, Patrick opened up about a conversation he had with his father after he signed a $500 million contract with the Chiefs. “My dad texted me a couple days after the contract: ‘Do you feel any different,'” he recalled. “I said I feel exactly the same. I’m going to be the same person I was before I got the contract and before I got to the NFL—to be the best Patrick Mahomes I can be every single day.”

At a press conference in 2021, Patrick also about the lessons he learned about parenthood from his own father and his sports career. “I got to see him battle and grind to try to get back there,” he said. “You never know if it’s going to be like this for the rest of your career. So I try to win as much as possible now and do whatever I can to win multiple Super Bowls.” He continued, “I’m at the right point in my career where I can use my voice and people can really, really make an impact in this world. This year, with everything that happened, it prompted me to really be bigger, and then be more than I had been before.”

In 2022, Patrick and his wife, Brittany Matthews welcomed their second child, a son named Patrick Lavone Mahomes III, after him and his father. (They welcomed their first child, a daughter named Sterling, in 2021.)

At a press conference in December 2022, Patrick explained why he wanted to name his son after him and his father, and how his brother, Jackson Mahomes, came up with his son’s nickname, Bronze.“When me and Brittany, when we had Sterling, we didn’t know if it was a girl or boy at first. So we started thinking of girl and boy names. We wanted them to have that connection and them to be brother and sister forever,” he said.

“I’ve always wanted to do Patrick Lavon Mahomes III. I’ve thought about that since I was literally like five or six years old. I always thought it was going to be ‘Trey’ as the third — you hear of a lot of people doing that. My brother Jackson, whenever we were trying to find something that was a little unique and different, he said, “What about Bronze? It fits perfectly with Sterling.’ We went with that, and I think it works out well.”

Patrick Mahomes’ dad was arrested on a DWI charge on February 3, 2024, less than 10 days before his son played in the Super Bowl. It’s the third time Patrick Snr. has faced such a charge; he got his second DWI in 2018 and served 40 days in jail over weekends in 2019 and 2020. The bond for the latest offense was set at $10,000.

Patrick Jnr. was asked about the incident and gave short responses when pressed by reporters on the issue. “He’s doing good,” the quarterback said. “I don’t really want to get into it too much, but he’s doing good for whatever the situation is.” He declined to say anything else. “It’s a family matter,” he reiterated, “so I’ll just keep it to the family. And that’s all I really have to say at this point.”

Patrick Mahomes' mom

Randi Mahomes (née Martin) is Patrick and Jackson’s mother. She is also the mom of his other half-sister, Mia Randall. In an interview with ABC4 in 2020, Randi opened up about what it was like raising Patrick and why she always knew he was going to be successful. “I knew when it came to sports he was going to be able to reach whatever level he wanted,” she said at the time. “Before his junior year in high school he came to me that summer wanting to quit football, but I just said you’re going to regret it if you quit.”

Randi also revealed that her son is quite different from what NFL fans may perceive him as. “He’s really a private person. He was always a good kid I will say,” she told ABC4. That said, she admitted that her son was also a bit of a troublemaker. “I had to ground him from practicing when he got in trouble as a kid,” she said. And Randi added that he never liked to be the center of attention,” she said. As for what football has done for her family, Randi had this to say, “I am proud of the football, but the family part of it—I’m way more proud and that’s something that I definitely don’t get enough of.”

In an interview with the Houston Chronicle in 2020, Randi opened up about what it was like to be the wife of an MLB player. “People would say to me, ‘You don’t have to work, you must be so lucky! You have this house, this pool, it must be so great,’” she said. “But I remember deep inside, I was hurting.” She also told the newspaper why she wanted to raise her children in a spiritual home. “I tried to make sure every Sunday we were at church,” she said.

“If I can’t teach my kids, maybe they will hear something at church that will drive them in the right direction. I made sure God was our foundation.” She revealed that, when Patrick was in middle school, he was invited to a youth group at a church, where his son fell in love with his faith.“It’s kind of far from our house. [But] I will make it happen,” Randi said. “He had his hands up with his eyes closed, and I remember thinking, ‘My job’s done, he knows God, and as a mother I can see it.’”
