Cam Newton Welcomes Son With Girlfriend Kia Proctor
This holiday season will be one to remember for Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton. According to the Charlotte Observer, the 26-year-old athlete welcomed his firstborn son on Christmas Eve in Atlanta with girlfriend, Kia Proctor. Newton took to Twitter Wednesday to confirm the news.
“My longtime girlfriend and I were extremely blessed to have a son last week,” Newton wrote. “Our family is excited and thank you all for the well wishes!
“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.”
According to reports, Newton left practice in a hurry on Christmas Eve. And during last week’s game against the Atlanta Falcons, he cradled the football as if he was rocking a baby following a touchdown. We now understand why.
Congrats Cam and Kia!
