Panthers Quarterback Cam Newton is also now a Father

Cam Newton confirmed in a tweet that he's now a father. His girlfriend had a son last week.


Newton left practice early on Christmas Eve for what the Panthers called a "personal matter," in what was widely speculated to be the birth of his child. After he scored a touchdown against the Falcons in the first quarter of last week's game, he cradled and rocked the football, as if it were a baby, in celebration.
