Judging by this heartwarming footage, Jerome Baker isn’t just a linebacker for the Miami Dolphins — he’s also a bonafide mama’s boy, and we mean that in the best sense!
And, just like these dads who wrote a tear-jerking song about their own mama’s boys, Jerome’s love for his mom is touching hearts everywhere.
In the video, Jerome is seen desperately looking into the stands throughout the game — and his microphone, hidden away within his uniform, captures his emotional roller coaster.
The video starts with one of Jerome’s teammates approaching him to ask, “You good?”
“Yeah, I’m looking for my mama, bro… I can’t see her,” Jerome replies, staring out into the stands.
Throughout the game, Jerome’s microphone records his anxiety as he continues to look for his mom.
“Bro, where is my mama, though?”
“Bruh, where is my mama?”
“I’ve been looking for my mama this whole game.”
“Where is my mama, bro?”
At one point, Jerome thinks he’s finally spotted his mom — but he’s disappointed when he sees he was wrong. “Oh, that… Nah, that ain’t her,” he mumbles.
Finally, Jerome announces to his teammate, “I found my mama,” and the two break into boyishly sweet grins.
‘Every boy mom’s heart just gushed…’
Thousands of TikTokers shared their emotional reactions to the sweet video in the comments.
“He’s definitely a mama’s boy,” one user wrote, a crying emoji in tow.
“As a football mom, this melted my heart,” another user commented.
“Every boy mom’s heart just gushed. The smile when he found her!” wrote another user.
“You know that mama made every single game,” commented one user.
“Good man! His momma loved him right!” another user wrote.
