The ruling on the field stands: Patrick Mahomes is one cool dad. 

As the Kansas City Chiefs quarterback prepares to compete in Super Bowl 2023 on Feb. 12, Patrick has already won the game of parenting thanks to his relationship with 23-month-old daughter Sterling Skye.

"She's a kid now, she's a toddler, not a baby anymore," Patrick said of his and wife Brittany Mahomes' eldest child on the Sept. 19 episode of The Drive radio show. "It's cool when you go home, and she recognizes you, and does what you're asking her to do, and she's super smart. Definitely cool to see her grow up." 

Even cooler for the Super Bowl champion is seeing her become an older sister after he and Brittany welcomed Patrick "Bronze" Lavon III in November.

"She's figuring it out," the athlete shared when describing Sterling's reaction to another baby in the house. "She wants to hold him, and take care of him, and everything like that."

While Patrick may be focused on the final football game of the season at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Ariz., he savors quality time with his kids. One look at his Instagram and you'll see the NFL player enjoying trips to the pumpkin patch or cuddle time on the couch.

"We just want to give her the most normal life that she possibly can so she can grow and have friends and learn and get better and better every single day," Patrick told Today in 2021. "There will be points where she'll be in the public eye, and we have a great understanding of that. Luckily we're in Kansas City where there's a lot of great people that she'll be in a great place as she grows up."

Sounds like a winning strategy to us. For more candid photos of Patrick and his kids, keep scrolling
