When it came to picking a baby name for their newborn son, Carolina Panthers star Cam Newton and his girlfriend, Kia Proctor, didn’t go the traditional route. They went for something as unique and lovely as their little bundle of joy! So what did they name him?
Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton and his longtime girlfriend, Kia Proctor, welcomed their son into the world on December 24, but waited until Thursday, December 31 to announce what they named their little guy. Their first child’s name is something incredibly unique and unexpected; you’re not going to guess this one. Read on to find out what they named their son!
Welcome to the world, Chosen Sebastian Newton! Cam and Kia’s baby weighed in at 9 pounds, 6 ounces, and Cam’s already joking that his kid may already be blessed with his own amazing athletic abilities! Cam left in the middle of practice on December 24 to rush to Kia’s side in Atlanta, in order to be present for their son’s birth. He waited until December 30 to reveal the good news, because he didn’t want to take any attention away from his team.
“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!” Cam tweeted. “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.”
While he kept the news private from the public, his teammates (and some fans) knew about the life-changing event, and could see how excited he was. After scoring a touchdown against the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday, December 27, Cam cradled the football like a baby. Subtle!
“He’s kind of got a glow,” teammate Mike Tolbert told the Charlotte Observer. “You can see it. You can see something’s different about him and obviously that’s it. I notice that he’s walking around with a much bigger smile and he’s a little bit more exuberant than anybody would be this time of year on a Thursday.” CLICK HERE to buy a sweet Cam Newton jersey!
