Cam Newton just became a first-time dad!
The Carolina Panthers quarterback announced on Twitter that his girlfriend Kia Proctor had given birth to a baby boy.
My longtime girlfriend and I were extremely blessed to have a son last week. Our family is excited and thank you all for the well wishes!— Cameron Newton (@CameronNewton) December 31, 2015
According to The Charlotte Observer, the duo's son was born on Christmas Eve, which explains why Cam performed a new touchdown dance on Sunday. Fans were initially confused as to why he was cradling the ball like a baby!
I've been quiet about this because I didn't want to create a distraction for my team and appreciate the privacy in this joyous time.— Cameron Newton (@CameronNewton) December 31, 2015
We're excited to see pictures of the little nugget!
