Cam Newton is a dad! The Panthers quarterback surprised everyone when he announced on Dec. 30 that he and longtime girlfriend Kia Proctor welcomed a baby boy on Christmas Eve. Congrats, Cam!
Welcome to the Panthers family! Cam Newton, 26, and girlfriend Kia Proctor, 27, have welcomed a baby boy into their lives. The Carolina Panthers quarterback revealed the exciting news on Twitter on Dec. 30. He said that he and Kia feel “extremely blessed” by the little one’s arrival!
The Carolina Panthers are currently 14-1 in the NFL, but Cam just scored an amazing gift! “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!” he tweeted on Dec. 30.
The baby was born in Atlanta on Dec. 24, according to The Charlotte Observer. He reportedly left practice on Christmas Eve with five plays remaining to race to Atlanta to be with Kia for the birth of their son. Cam also tweeted after the announcement: “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.”
This is the first child for Cam and Kia. How exciting! Rumors swirled for months about the pregnancy, but the couple stayed very quiet about their personal lives.
What an incredible year this has been for Cam. The Carolina Panthers are currently having their best season yet. After an amazing 14-0 run, the Panthers fell to 14-1 to the Atlanta Falcons. The Panthers are still #1 in the NFC South. And the team has their eye on one thing in 2016 — the Super Bowl!
Once again, congrats to Cam and Kia. HollywoodLifers — send your well wishes to Cam and Kia now!
