Brittany Mahomes' Extra Spicy Sports Illustrated Bikini Video Finally Silences Her Haters

The stunning Brittany Mahomes is being celebrated in her own right with her rookie appearance in the iconic Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue, which is celebrating its 60th anniversary in 2024. Brittany has faced her fair share of haters over the years and while some in that position might keep their heads down and go quiet, Brittany's clearly not letting anyone get to her. In the Instagram announcement, which includes some behind-the-scenes moments from her shoot in Belize, they describe some of Brittany's accomplishments, including "owner of the Kansas City Current NWSL team, former pro athlete, wife and mother."

Notably, nowhere in the description do we see her named as the wife of Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes. She's her own person, and that's what's being celebrated here (though they did have Brittany wearing a bright red two-piece swimsuit, which just happens to be one of her husband's team colors).

She's also noted as being the "founder of the world's first ever dedicated stadium for women's sports," in reference to her work on the permanent home for the Kansas City Currents — the CPKC Stadium. It is set to open at Berkley Riverfront Park in Kansas City, Missouri for the 2024 National Women's Soccer League (NWSL) season. And while we don't want to focus on looks alone, we have to say that Brittany looks fantastic and seems to have had a lot of fun on set.

Brittany Mahomes is all about being true to herself

In case you wondered exactly what Brittany Mahomes thinks about her critics, she makes it clear in her interview with Sports Illustrated. "Be confident in who you are and be unapologetically yourself," Mahomes said. "People are going to love you or hate you, but finding your values and what makes you the best version of yourself is what really matters." Mahomes has come after her haters before, and we love to see her moving past them and living her best life.

The model's fans flooded the comments to share their support for her SI Swimsuit debut. One person wrote, "Love it!!! She's not just a 'football wife.' She's a queen making her name known on her own and empowering girls everywhere." Another one said, "You're setting a great example for your kids that you are continuing to build your own brand and have your own accomplishments that you can be proud of, independent from your husband." We couldn't agree more.

A fellow newcomer to this year's SI Swimsuit issue is Lori Harvey, a longtime model, entrepreneur, and the daughter of Steve Harvey. This year's SI Swimsuit issue will come out in May 2024.

She continues to inspire resilience with her SI feature

Naturally, not all of the haters have been silenced. Unfortunately for Brittany Mahomes, her Sports Illustrated stint hasn't been received well in all corners. While her achievements speak for themselves, online trolls were quick to suggest that she only got the opportunity because of her marriage to Patrick Mahomes. "So many models apply, but because she is relevant and has money, she gets it on her first try," one commenter argued under the SI Instagram post announcing Brittany's May feature.

Not only that but some users were pressed over the skimpy bikinis Brittany rocked in the video. One noted, "Especially being a wife to [Patrick] and a mother to her children, I think this one was out of line," while another penned, "Oh, this is really, really bad. I mean, does her husband want her blatantly exposed, nearly naked? Please don't do this." It's clear you can't win them all no matter what you do, but luckily Brittany came prepared.

When sharing the SI accomplishment on her Instagram Stories, Brittany wrote, "I'm here to tell you. People will dislike you. People will love you," adding, "Don't let any of that define you. Keep shining and being you," (via People). We're sure that's exactly what she'll do, and until then, as a wise woman once said — the players gonna play and the haters gonna hate.
