The NFL star, and his spouse, both 28, can be seen posing alongside Melia, 8, and Madison, 10, Reyes at Children’s Mercy Hospital on Wednesday, in photos shared on Friday.

The two girls, who were among the 11 children injured, sustained gunshot wounds to their legs and are expected to make a full recovery.

The siblings had been in the crowd with mother, Erika Reyes, who is the cousin of Lisa Lopez-Galvan, the sole victim of the mass shooting on Wednesday.

According to the family, the girls required surgery for their leg injuries and are now making ‘good progress’ in their recovery.

In a public statement released on Friday, the family shared photos of the couple’s visit and thanked Patrick and Brittany Mahomes ‘for their outpouring care, love, and support.’

The heartwarming images show Mahomes and Brittany posing alongside the girls, who are smiling from ear to ear and holding a mini Kansas City Chiefs football helmet from their hospital beds.

‘On behalf of the Reyes Family, we are incredibly grateful for the love, support, and prayers during this difficult time. Our family, along with the other families impacted by this senseless act, are still healing physically and emotionally,’ the statement read.

‘We’re happy to share that our daughters, ages 8 and 10, are making good progress in their recovery from their leg injuries. Both girls were shot in the legs, underwent surgery, and are currently in casts for several months.

‘We will endure follow-up doctor’s visits for the next few years. They are receiving physical therapy to regain their strength and mobility. While we are relieved by their progress, the emotional healing continues for all of us.

‘The girls were celebrating with many family members when they were senselessly injured. We kindly ask that you continue to keep our family and the other families affected in your thoughts and prayers.’

Police said the 22 people were injured in the shooting ranged between 8 and 47 years old, with half under the age of 16.

On Friday the Chiefs finally made a move to support their community as the city tries to recover from the tragedy.

The franchise announced it has set up ‘Kansas City Strong’ with the Hunt family and the NFL supporting the cause with an initial $200,000 donation to kickstart the fundraiser.

The fund comes after Taylor Swift, the girlfriend of Chefs tight end Travis Kelce, made a touching donation of $100,000 to the grieving family of the Kansas City radio DJ shot dead.

The popstar, who wasn’t at the rally Wednesday after jetting in to Australia for the next leg of her Eras Tour, made two $50,000 donations to the GoFundMe page set up for Lisa Lopez-Galvan’s family.

‘Sending my deepest sympathies and condolences in the wake of your devastating loss. With love, Taylor Swift,’ read the message accompanying the gift.

Lopez-Galvan, 44, was killed when two juvenile gunmen opened fire in the crowd in a ‘personal dispute’ that escalated.

Earlier on Friday the Jackson County Prosecutor’s Office confirmed the juvenile suspects will be charged as adults.

The two suspects who are yet to be named are currently in custody, as cops in Missouri continue to vet what happened at the stricken Super Bowl celebration.

A third juvenile initially believed to be involved has since been determined to not been connected to the shooting and was released.

Police Chief Stacey Graves said investigators believe the shooting was triggered by a personal dispute between a small group, and the parade was not the target. Graves added that preliminary findings show no connection to terrorism or homegrown extremism.

The 22 people injured ranged between 8 and 47 years old, with half under 16. Children’s Mercy Hospital said it treated 11 children – nine of them had been shot and three remain at the hospital on Thursday. All victims are expected to recover, per officials.

Lopez-Galvan’s brother Beto Lopez went on to reveal Lopez-Galvan’s son, Marc, and her daughter, Adrianna, were both present at the parade, and witnessed their mom’s merciless killing.
