“I have a great wife. I think that helps out a ton,” Patrick Mahomes makes Jaw breaking statement Amid criticism

I have a great wife. I think that helps out a ton,” the Kansas City Chiefs star, 27, tells PEOPLE at the premiere of his new Netflix documentary series Quarterback in Los Angeles, California. “She helps me out a ton by taking stuff off my plate.”

“I have great people around me and I can be Patrick Mahomes,” he adds about his wider support group, which includes daughter Sterling Skye, 2, and son, Patrick “Bronze” Lavon eight months, alongside Brittany, 27, who he married in July 2022.

I can be myself, the same person I’ve grown up being — and luckily that’s won a couple of Super Bowls,” he continues.

In Quarterback, Mahomes stars alongside fellow NFL players Kirk Cousins, and Marcus Mariota as the series takes viewers behind the scenes of what it takes to be a pro quarterback for the first time ever.

At the premiere, the father of two shared his hopes that his children will now get to see “That when dad’s not home, he’s out there working hard to achieve his dream.”

“I don’t know what my kids’ dreams are going to be, but I want them to work hard at it and try to achieve those,” he adds to PEOPLE about the inspiration this will hopefully provide them.

“Now they’re too young now to understand, but when they see this as they get older, I want them to know that they can go out there and chase their dreams and still have a great family at home.”
