Baby Gronk
Baby Gronk's dad has made him popular on social media.

Madden San Miguel, commonly known as "Baby Gronk," is causing a stir online due to his stature and unusual football skill for his age. According to reports, the 10-year-old is a running back and safety.

Jake San Miguel, Baby Gronk's father, said the nickname arose because his son weighed a lot more than anyone else his age.

"We call him Baby Gronk because he weighs 20 pounds more than all the children in his grade."

A former high school football player and musician, Jake San Miguel is 35 and is a competent digital marketer.

He's mostly in charge of managing his son's online persona. According to him, his son receives about $100,000 annually through a variety of commercial relationships and endorsements.

Jake has turned his love for his son into a profitable business and is committed to ensuring the prosperity and contentment of his son.

"Since before my son was even born, I've had plans for him," Miguel recently told The Athletic. "It's unfolding right now."

Baby Gronk's dad has been subject of criticism after going viral on social media

Madden San Miguel, who has over 300,000 Instagram followers, has been in the spotlight in recent weeks, thanks to a TikTok video that showed him meeting LSU athlete Olivia Dunne.

There's no denying that the "Baby Gronk" brand has taken off recently. However, many people feel that the child should be free from unreasonable demands and unjust judgment so that he can enjoy his childhood.

Moreover, J.J. Watt, a former three-time NFL Defensive Player of the Year, expressed his disapproval of the Baby Gronk trend, saying that he's of the opinion that "no kid should be training like a pro until at least high school."

Miguel has been interviewed by numerous media outlets regarding the criticism he has faced as a consequence of his son's internet success. He maintains that anyone who has an issue with it is jealous and stuck in the past.

Ensuring his son is "programmed" for greatness was something he mentioned doing.

"He is a genuine athlete. He's not your typical youngster," San Miguel told The Athletic. "Since the age of 6, he has been trained and programmed."

Madden San Miguel is expected to be an eminent figure for years to come. He could have a career in the NFL, but it remains to be seen if he has what it takes to be a successor to the legendary Rob Gronkowski, as has been widely suggested.
