How many siblings does the QB have?
Patrick Mahomes is perhaps the best quarterback in the NFL, with an MVP and a Super Bowl ring at the age of 26. He is a known name and has a high level of fame. But what about the rest of his family? Younger brother Jackson is somewhat famous himself thanks to a large social media following, but he’s not Patrick Mahomes’ only brother. There are actually two other siblings in the Mahomes clan, which gives the Chiefs quarterback a total of one sibling and two sisters. Let’s find out more about them.
Who are the parents of Patrick Mahomes?
Patrick was born in Texas in 1995 to parents Pat and Randi Mahomes. Father Pat also played professional sports; he pitched in Major League Baseball from 1992 to 2003. His parents married in the 1990s and in 2000 Randi gave birth to Jackson. He would be the last child the Mahomes would have together, since they divorced in 2006.
Despite the end of their marriage, Pat and Randi maintained a friendly relationship over the years that followed. Randi raised the children after the divorce, but Patrick has a good relationship with his father and the two keep in touch.
Patrick Mahomes has two siblings after his parents divorce
After the Mahomets’ divorce, they each had another child through other relationships. Patrick’s half-sister, Zoe Mahomes, was born into one of Pat’s relationships after the divorce. Patrick’s other half-sister, Mia Randall, was born to Rand in 2011, and she is the youngest of Mahomes’ siblings. Randi isn’t shy about posting photos of his youngest daughter on social media to document the daughter’s life for the mother’s followers.
Despite a significant age difference between Patrick and his half-sisters, he maintains a strong relationship with them, as he does with Jackson. Mahomes made aunts and uncle of his siblings earlier this year when he welcomed a daughter with his fiancee Brittany Matthews, adding another member to the Mahomes family.
Perhaps helped by his brother’s fame, Jackson has become a social media celebrity in recent years. The 21-year-old’s largest audience is on TikTok, where the University of Missouri-Kansas City marketing student has more than 970,000 followers. Jackson’s popularity doesn’t stop on this platform, however. He has 255,000 subscribers on Instagram and 28,000 on Twitter, as well as nearly 25,000 subscribers on his YouTube channel. Jackson is capitalizing on his popularity by launching his own line of products. But this fame also brings controversy to Jackson.
Patrick Mahomes’ younger brother receives hate messages from people on social media, including anti-gay slurs despite having publicly addressed his sexuality and made it clear that he is straight. The hurtful messages Jackson receives affect him more than the people sending them can realize. He spoke out against the hate, saying, “Honestly, I really struggle with this and try to stay strong, but it has become too much. “
Sadly, Jackson’s actions spark some of the controversy that surrounds him. CBS Sports reports that Jackson was caught throwing water on a Ravens fan after the Chiefs’ loss to Baltimore in Sunday Night Football in Week 2. Mahomes was reportedly upset by the loss of his brother in the close game and became aggressive with the Ravens fan. He responded to a tweet about the incident, writing: “They were thirsty.”
Despite the controversies, Jackson has a good relationship with Patrick. Jackson attends as many Chiefs games as he can and has called Matthews his “best friend.” The Mahomes brothers also starred in a State Farm commercial together, with Patrick helping to increase his brother’s fame.
