Brittany Mahomes, known best for her work as a NWSL team co-owner and wife of NFL star quarterback Patrick Mahomes, will be featured as a rookie in the 2024 SI Swimsuit Issue. The 28-year-old Texas native recently traveled to San Pedro Ambergris Caye, Belize, for her photo shoot with the brand.

“I’m truly just so humbled and still in disbelief,” she told SI Swimsuit of posing for the magazine in Central America. “As a girl from Tyler, Texas, who only really knew sports, never in a million years did I think I’d be in [the SI Swimsuit Issue]. I’m just so grateful for this opportunity.”

While on location, Mahomes modeled a red Mugler one-piece with cut-outs and chatted with the brand about her work as a women’s sports advocate. As a co-founder of the Kansas City Current and former college and pro soccer player herself, Mahomes is working to elevate the playing field—literally—for women athletes. CPKC Stadium, the first purpose-built stadium used exclusively for women’s professional soccer, opens in March, and will serve as the franchise’s own venue.

“These women deserve to feel important and have their own facility so that they can perform at their best,” Mahomes notes of the team’s players. “I hope this sets the bar for women’s sports everywhere and other cities continue to build around women’s sports. Just like young boys get to dream of playing football at stadiums like Arrowhead, I want young girls everywhere to aspire to play at stadiums like CPKC.”
