Rob Gronkowski's mom, Diane, did a tremendous job raising five (!) boys, all of whom would go on to be professional athletes. 

In a recent interview with the "TODAY" show on NBC, Diane details what it was like raising five kids who played tons of different sports growing up, and what her emotions are like when she watches them play. 

Gronkowski's mom also admits that even though Rob soon will play in his fifth Super Bowl in nine seasons with the New England Patriots, it's still just as sweet as the first time. It's a good lesson on how to appreciate everything as it happens, because at some point he'll retire and there won't be any more of these Super Bowl memories.

Check out the full interview in the video below, including what Gronkowski's mom wants him to learn from Patriots quarterback Tom Brady.
