Rob Gronkowski breaks silence on Baby Gronk
The internet has finally uncovered the truth about Madden San Miguel, more commonly known as Baby Gronk. Now, the inspiration behind his social media name, Rob Gronkowski, has finally taken the mic, saying the situation has gone “too far.”
The former New England Patriots and Tampa Bay Buccaneers tight end spoke about Baby Gronk’s surprising fame, and the man truly truly behind all the madness, to Barstool Sports.
“Yeah, it’s to a point where it’s awkward. It’s too far,” Gronkowski told Barstool Sports at Tight End University. “Four weeks ago, my brother told me, ‘Yo, have you seen Baby Gronk?’ ‘Did I see him? ‘ I go. ‘His dad hit me up 500 times already.’ He goes, ‘Don’t do anything.’ The dad is so annoying. And this was like five, six weeks ago. And then all of a sudden, two weeks later, it’s coming out everywhere. My brother died laughing.”
Baby Gronk’s father, Jake San Miguel, is controlling his 10-year-old son’s life, often telling him what to say in interviews, asking the interviewee to repeat the question and then say a different response. He is messaging not only football players like Gronkowski, but messaging colleges asking for photoshoots. He will then claim them as “offers” from those schools, when in reality, it’s just a marketing scheme.
Some celebrities that the social media star has met include LSU gymnast Livvy Dunne, Texas A&M receiver Evan Stewart and more. With these celebrities helping raise Baby Gronk’s profile, Gronkowski thinks the games need to stop.
“We’re gonna cease and desist Baby Gronk’s dad,” Gronkowski said.
Outside of Gronkowski, more former NFL players have publicized their concerns on the 10-year-old’s stardom. Chris Long, a two-time Super Bowl champion, mentioned his concerns about the situation.
“I have no problem with profiting off the internet, this is what we’re all doing,” Long said on his podcast Green Light. “But the difference is we’re not using a 10-year-old kid to do it. You gotta be concerned about the toll this is gonna take on Baby Gronk when he’s older.”
