Players from the Kansas City Chiefs and the San Francisco 49ers have begun their extensive rounds of interviews ahead of the 2024 Super Bowl, and Patrick Mahomes is being asked about much more than just his game. The Super Bowl-winning quarterback for the Chiefs was recently asked to do a Kermit the Frog impression (IYKYK) and to shed some light on what’s underneath all his pads.

“I have a six pack,” he insisted. “It’s just under the dad bod.”

Which is such a hilarious dad thing to say. Suuure it’s there, Pat. Whatever helps you sleep at night. (It probably actually is, given his workout routine, but we have to laugh about it.)

“If you feel it — I mean, there might be some skin there, but then underneath that — the six pack’s there,” he said. “You got to get real close and you got to squint a little bit and I think you’ll see it.”

Fans are quickly coming to Patrick’s defense, telling him six packs are overrated and wondering how people could possibly hate him. “You ain’t gotta explain yourself to the haters!!!! 🙌🔥❤️”

“Let’s Go Patrick show them who you really are a True MVP Championship player!!!!!🏆🏆🏆KEEP POKING THE BEAR !!!!!!!!!!!”

Others could totally relate: “I mean, we all have a 6 pack. Most just cover it up with pizza and cheeseburgers 😂”

Can We Get Confirmation?

Now we’re dying to hear from his wife Brittany Mahomes! The high school sweethearts share two kids —Sterling, 2 and Bronze, 1 — so yes, there is a genuine dad bod. But we have to know if the co-owner of the Kansas City Current can see the alleged ab muscles when she gets close and squints. Can she feel it underneath the deceptive skin?

Last month, Brittany shared an adorable photo of Patrick in total dad mode. His dad bod was covered by his SKIMS loungewear, and he was snuggled up with his kiddos before bed. Sterling and Bronze looked so entranced while he read Good Night, God to them.

Another Famed NFL Dad Bod

Patrick isn’t the only one whose body has been getting a lot of attention lately. Philadelphia Eagles center Jason Kelce went viral when he took off his shirt to celebrate during brother Travis Kelce’s recent game. And it wasn’t just the grownups who had something to say about the shirtless shenanigans. The girl dad — who shares daughters Wyatt, 4, Elliotte, 2 and Bennett, almost 1 with wife Kylie Kelce — was called out by his middle child.

“Dad’s boobs are showing!” Ellie reportedly said while watching her dad on TV.

And now we’re wondering if Jason would say there are pecs underneath those “boobs.” You just have to get close and squint.
