Brittany Matthews, who recently welcomed her first child with fiancé Patrick Mahomes, is still preparing herself for the idea of being a mother in the public eye.

The 25-year-old fitness influencer and new mom took to her Instagram Story on Wednesday, Feb. 24 to share a sweet message about newborn daughter Sterling. Brittany and the Kansas City Chiefs' superstar quarterback greeted their first child on Feb. 20.

"Today was Sterlings actual due date, sure glad she came a few days early," Brittany wrote on Feb. 24.

Included in her post was the photo she had shared on the day of Sterling's birth that showed the baby's little hand but not her face. As for when we'll all get to see more of the bundle of joy, it's probably best not to hold your breath.

"We will share photos of her when we [feel] the time is right," Brittany continued on her Story. "I know the Internet will instantly take the photos of her and share everywhere so just preparing myself for my newborn baby girl to be shared to the world! Right now we are just soaking in every minute with her."

Athletes and Their Sports Star Kids

Brittany might still be adjusting to raising a child while the world is watching, but it seems clear she'll have no trouble speaking her mind when needed.


On Feb. 19, just before giving birth, she shared a maternity photo of herself posing with Patrick. After some users wrote negative comments about her appearance, Brittany fired back with, "Women being hateful to other women on social media seriously needs to stop! If you have nothing nice to say, THEN STFU."

She also has no problem standing up for her man. When ESPN tweeted a photo of Patrick, 25, looking dejected during his team's Super Bowl loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers earlier this month, his fiancée replied, "Cool ESPN, love the support of a major sports platform for one of the best players in the league..."

In other words, whenever Sterling makes her grand debut in the potentially scary world of the Internet, she's going to have the perfect ambassador.
