Patients at Hasbro Children's Hospital had a special surprise Tuesday.

They had a visit from New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski and his father and brothers.

Gronkowski spent time coloring with the kids, signing autographs, and taking photos. He also signed a jersey for a 14-year-old boy who said he wore it while watching the Super Bowl in his hospital room.

The Gronkowski family also presented a check for $25,000 to the hospital from the Gronk Nation Youth Foundation.

Hasbro Chlildren's Hospital said the Gronkowskis visited children's hospitals in Massachusetts and Maine before arriving in Rhode Island.
