Brittany Mahomes found support from fellow WAG Kelly Stafford following her debut in Sports Illustrated Swimsuit as a rookie. Stafford, wife of Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford, took to Instagram to defend athletes’ wives who leverage their platforms for positive impact.
In an Instagram post featuring Mahomes along with other influential women, Stafford urged fellow WAGs not to be ashamed of their platform but rather to use it for good, whether by supporting their families, giving back, or creating positive change.
However, some commenters questioned Mahomes’ inclusion in the post, prompting a defender to highlight Mahomes’ contributions, including creating a safe space for women in soccer and promoting life-saving medicine for children with allergies through charitable efforts.
“These are just a few of the many women who I look up to… the ones that have used their position in this life to build businesses, give back and overall do good in this world,” she captioned.
In response to critics, Mahomes emphasized staying true to oneself and not letting others’ opinions define one’s worth, reinforcing the importance of self-confidence and authenticity.
Mahomes’ SI Swimsuit debut coincides with her husband Patrick Mahomes’ participation in Super Bowl 2024 with the Kansas City Chiefs. It remains unclear whether she will attend the game with her family or alongside her friend Taylor Swift, who will be supporting her boyfriend, Travis Kelce.
