The words you looked into my eyes and said to me at this moment, will NEVER leave my mind! You made this day perfect, you took my entire breath away and I could not have imagined anything better. I love you, forever and always! Cheers to spending our lifetime together and an inseparable bond🎉🥂💕.”The couple announced Matthews’ pregnancy in a post on Instagram a few weeks after getting engaged.“Mom and Dad, taking a small detour to the wedding,” Matthews captioned a photo holding an ultrasound photo with Mahomes.
