The mother of the Gronkowski brothers celebrates not only being with her sons but her new book called ‘Outnumbered.”

Diane Gronkowski decided to put her wisdom into words and write a book called ‘Outnumbered.’ The book talks about navigating being a mom of five boys and life as a stay-at-home mom.

Diane is the mother of Rob, Gordie, Dan, Chris, and Glenn Gronkowski.

Most people would say raising five boys is a hard task but raising five boys who grew up to be professional athletes is almost impossible.

Four of Diane’s boys played in the NFL, and Gordie played professional baseball.

“Being a stay-at-home mom your influence means so much you’re there, when they leave in the morning, there when they get home at night,” Diane said.

Professional sports aren’t the only thing the Gronkowski brothers have in common, they also share the love they have for their mother.

“Every practice, every lunch meal, every dinner meal, every practice meal, and somehow she did it,” Rob said.

Gordie said their mom is the main reason they are successful.

All proceeds from the book sales will go to the family’s charity, the Gronk Nation Youth Foundation.

The foundation donates athletic gear and equipment to youth in need and now they’re bringing the help to Southwest Florida.

“We’re gonna find a kid’s charity around here in Fort Myers and keep the money that we’re raising here from this event. Keep it around here and we’re gonna find a kids’ charity,” Rob said.
