While on location with the SI Swimsuit team in San Pedro Ambergris Caye, Belize, for her photo shoot in the forthcoming 60th anniversary issue, Mahomes stated that motherhood was the “best thing” that’s ever happened to her. She also noted that as a mom, it’s important for her to focus on her own well-being in order to show up for her family. 

“Be confident in who you are and be unapologetically yourself,” she said. “People are going to love you or hate you, but finding your values and what makes you ‘you’ to be the best version of yourself is what really matters. Whether that’s health and wellness, being a great wife or mom, or career goals, being the best version of you is the most important thing you can be.”
