Diane Gronkowski, author of Outnumbered, was recently featured on Rob Gronkowski’s social media! Diane was a stay-at-home mother of five sons, all of whom became professional athletes, with the odds of that being much greater than winning the lottery.
She dedicated many years of working 24/7/365 to keeping her “boys” organized, fed, educated, and on schedule.
Now, she lives in SW Florida and is remarried to Mike Walters. Together they have a home watch business. She currently has six grandchildren, with a prediction of many more to come.
“I have five sons, each born about two years apart. I went from changing diapers to toilet training to changing diapers to toilet training to buying jockey shorts and then athletic supporters. My boys went from weighing a collective thirty-nine pounds at birth to now weighing over half a ton and each having become a professional athlete!
Did I have any idea that I was raising five future athletes? Of course not. I have driven or flown hundreds of thousands of miles over the last thirty-plus years to ice rinks, baseball diamonds, football fields, and basketball courts, to mention a few.
Besides athletes, they are now entertainers, fathers, entrepreneurs, role models, and familiar faces on TV. I dedicated 24/7/365 to raise my “boys” to be hard workers, and good citizens. Outnumbered is a book about some of the events in my sons’ lives as told by me, the only female on the team. I never would have dreamed that I would have the life that I had while raising these incredible athletes.” — Diane Gronkowski
