Patrick Mahomes is going to be a girl dad!
On Wednesday, the NFL quarterback, 25, and his fiancée Brittany Matthews announced the sex of their baby on the way via a video montage of their confetti-filled outdoor gathering, which saw the couple have friends and family take part through a video call.
Mahomes and Matthews, 25, wore all white in the clip as they waited for their adorable dogs to walk along a white carpet to reveal blue or pink paint on their paw prints — and it was pink! The couple smiled as they embraced their pets and posed for pictures to celebrate the news.
"Baby Girl 💕💕," the mom-to-be captioned the post on Instagram. "P.s- Yes, my dogs walked down a run way with pink paws for the reveal 🤩😍" Mahomes shared the same video to his page, writing simply: "My ❤️"
