"My longtime girlfriend and I were extremely blessed to have a son last week,” the 26-year-old wrote to his nearly 500K followers. “Our family is excited and thank you all for the well wishes!"

 

According to the Charlotte Observer, Newton was spotted leaving practice early on Christmas Eve to be with Proctor in time for the birth later that day.

In a subsequent tweet, Cam added: “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.”

Happy New Year!
