The shadow of Deflategate didn't seem to put a damper on Rob Gronkoski's birthday plans over the weekend!

Even though the New England Patriots tight end technically won't turn 26 until Thursday, he began celebrating early in Vegas (after the Ted Wells report said teammate Tom Brady was probably complicit in using under-inflated footballs but before the quarterback was suspended), and of course Gronk didn't celebrate alone!

He brought his bros and his dad along for the party. Yes, even his dad was there to ring in the big 2-6!

Gronk kicked off the festivities wearing a wig.

Then moved to the dance floor, where he took over with some jumping...

...and twerking.


Of course no birthday is complete without a cake. But no need for singing or candles—smashing cakes is the Gronk way! (A notion that was Papa Gronk approved!)

Birthday cake anyone? #Gronk #RobGronkowski #Vegas #Rehab #RehabLV

Happy Birthday Gronk, we can only hope that your birthday week remains way more untainted than your 2015 Super Bowl victory!
