NFL star Patrick Mahomes welcomed daughter Sterling Skye over the weekend with long-time love, fiance, and now new mommy Brittany Matthews.

Mahomes announced the Feb. 20 birth of the couples’ first child on Instagram, with a sweet post. The post featured a pic of the newborn’s teeny tiny hand holding her mommy’s finger—and a necklace with her name written in sparkling cursive.

The new parents started dating as teenagers. Mahomes popped the question to his high school sweetheart last September, after the Chiefs’ Super Bowl ring ceremony. Not long after announcing their engagement, Matthews posted a photo of the pair holding an ultrasound pic on IG, with the caption, “Mom & Dad, taking a small detour to the wedding.”

Matthews also posted the same mommy-daughter newborn photo her soon-to-be husband shared. Along with her baby girl’s name, Matthews added the baby’s weight—six pounds and 11 ounces!

Congrats went out to the new parents from several notable celebs. Gwen Stefani responded to Mahome’s post, “congratulations! cool name!” and Jerry Rice shared, “Congratulations!!”
