“So, it’s 10 years for me, she’s older than me,” the sportsman adds, gesturing to his wife Brittany, also 28. The pair are high school sweethearts, but Brittany was a junior while Patrick was a sophomore when they first met.

“She’s at 11 now. But, I won’t be able to celebrate it but I’m gonna send my best wishes to all my classmates,” Patrick says.

Thursday’s event saw Patrick, who had previously been named the Super Bowl 2024 MVP following the Chiefs’ 25-22 victory over the San Francisco 49ers at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas on Feb. 11, 2024, and his teammates receive glitzy rings after their big win. Brittany also shared some sweet behind-the-scenes moments from the event on her Instagram Stories the same night.

This year’s Super Bowl achievement was Kansas City’s second consecutive win after they defeated the Philadelphia Eagles one year prior. With a new NFL season on the horizon, Patrick and tight end Travis Kelce, 34, have the opportunity to lead the team to their third championship in a row.

The June 13 ring ceremony comes shortly after the team visited President Joe Biden to celebrate their Super Bowl win at the White House. “The Kansas City Chiefs, the first team in 20 years to win back to back. I kinda like that,” Biden, 81, said.

“At last year’s White House Super Bowl celebration, I said this team was building a dynasty, which means everyone’s coming to you after starting this season, red hot, and you all had your share of struggles when the doubters question whether you can pull it off again,” Biden continued.

“Believe me, I dunno what that feels like, but anyway. Well, I don’t think anybody’s doubting you now. You fought hard, you kept the faith.”

The Chiefs received their Super Bowl rings amid the team’s mandatory mini-camp this week, which began on Tuesday and concluded on Thursday.

The team has some downtime now until training camp begins on July 23.
