In a Father’s Day post, the former Carolina Panthers quarterback calls himself a proud father of seven children including his side chick’s son from her previous relationship.
Cam Newton finally confirmed that he fathered a child with another woman during his relationship with longtime girlfriend Kia Proctor. The quarterback took to social media on Father’s Day to officially introduce the toddler he previously kept hidden from public.
It’s a baby boy named Caesar. The mother is an Instagram model named Reina. She was allegedly the reason the 31-year-old NFL player called it quits with Kia after a longtime relationship.
Cam called himself a proud father of seven kids. He shares four children with Kia and one son with Reina. He also becomes a father figure for Kia’s daughter Shakira from her previous relationship and Reina’s first son Jaden.
He posted pictures of all the kids including Jaden on his Instagram. He was seen playing Uno with the boy in the Father’s Day post and played “a little game of SPEED” with Shakira during a father-daughter lunch date in an older video posted in May.
“A DADDY isn’t defined as the man who makes the child (NOT in all instances),” he wrote, “but rather a MAN who extends his hands and time to help with the kid’s raising and his heart to LOVE the child through anything!! Blood doesn’t always make you DADDY. Being a DAD comes from the heart… Anybody CAN MAKE A BABY BUT IT TAKES A REAL MAN TO RAISE A CHILD!! Kudos to ALL THE REAL MEN worldwide!! HAPPY FATHER’S DAY TO US!!”
Cam and Kia were previously entangled in a custody battle when they split amid rumors of his infidelity. Back then, he wanted a joint custody while she demanded a full custody. As she asked for child support, he demanded DNA test for the four children she gave birth during their relationship.
