Randi Mahomes (née Martin) is Patrick and Jackson’s mother. She is also the mom of his other half-sister, Mia Randall.
In an interview with ABC4 in 2020, Randi opened up about what it was like raising Patrick and why she always knew he was going to be successful. to take you, choosing an RV will be a little easier.
“I knew when it came to sports he was going to be able to reach whatever level he wanted,” she said at the time.
“Before his junior year in high school he came to me that summer wanting to quit football, but I just said you’re going to regret it if you quit.”
Randi also revealed that her son is quite different from what NFL fans may perceive him as. “He’s really a private person.
He was always a good kid I will say,” she told ABC4. That said, she admitted that her son was also a bit of a troublemaker.
“I had to ground him from practicing when he got in trouble as a kid,” she said. And Randi added that he never liked to be the center of attention,” she said.
As for what football has done for her family, Randi had this to say, I am proud of the football, but the family part of it—I’m way more proud and tha’s something that I definitely don’t get enough of.
In an interview with the Houston Chronicle in 2020, Randi opened up about what it was like to be the wife of a MLB player.
“People would say to me, ‘You don’t have to work, you must be so lucky! You have this house, this pool, it must be so great,’” she said. “But I remember deep inside, I was hurting.”
She also told the newspaper why she wanted to raise her children in a spiritual home. “I tried to make sure every Sunday we were at church,” she said.
“If I can’t teach my kids, maybe they will hear something at church that will drive them in the right direction. I made sure God was our foundation.”
She revealed that, when Patrick was in middle school, he was invited to a youth group at a church, where his son fell in love with his faith.
“It’s kind of far from our house. [But] I will make it happen,” Randi said. “He had his hands up with his eyes closed,
and I remember thinking, ‘My job’s done, he knows God, and as a mother I can see it.’”
She also told the Houston Chronicle about how, when she was 16 years old, she moved out of her parents’ house because of how they disapproved of her dating Patrick’s father.
(Randi is white, while Pat is Black.) “I look back at it now as a parent,” she said. “I think it was to protect me and to protect my children from the meanness of the world.
We were in a small town where no one dated outside their race.”
As for what it’s been like since Patrick competed in his first Super Bowl and became an NFL superstar, Randi confessed that that her son’s rise in fame had been a transition.
“It’s all been a learning curve for us — how to be a family in this new reality,” Randi said. She continued, “I have been proud of him. I think what I told him stuck with him.
Thankfully, he’s very mature, very smart. Patrick’s out in this world, with the world at his fingertips. I remind him: God has gotten you here.”
Still, Randi doesn’t take credit for her children’s success. “Now people say I’m doing such a good job. I say, ‘I can only pray and leave it to God to handle the rest.’
And that’s how I’ve tried to raise my children. They will make mistakes, just like all of us,” she said.
