Footballer Cam Newton a New Year Dad
Carolina Panthers football star Cam Newton will ring in 2016 as a dad after welcoming a son over Christmas.
The 26-year-old quarterback’s girlfriend Kia Proctor gave birth to the couple’s first child in Atlanta, Georgia.
Newton announced the happy news via Twitter, writing, “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!”
“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,” he added.
