He's guided the Panthers to a remarkable 14-1 record, winning the NFC South and placing himself squarely at the forefront of the conversation for NFL Most Valuable Player.
Now Newton has even more reason to celebrate. He's become a father, as he revealed Wednesday.
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!— Cameron Newton (@CameronNewton) December 31, 2015
Newton also explained on Twitter why he didn't announce the news sooner.
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.— Cameron Newton (@CameronNewton) December 31, 2015
Hopefully, the newest Newton will let his daddy get some sleep. After all, the Panthers have a big game against Tampa Bay on Sunday with a No. 1 playoff seeding at stake.
