Cam Newton is a Proud Father of 7 Children

Cam Newton is one of the more polarizing quarterbacks in the NFL. The man known as Superman proved his worth at every level, winning the 2015 NFL MVP and playing in a Super Bowl with the Carolina Panthers after winning a Heisman Trophy and national championship at Auburn.

When he's not dressing himself in absurd and hilarious outfits, the former first overall pick and fashionista is setting world records on Youtube and making headlines for saying he's giving up sex to become a better quarterback. How'd that work for him?

The Carolina Panthers quarterback-turned-New-England-Patriots-quarterback hasn't exactly shined in throwing touchdowns and filling Tom Brady's shoes in Massachusetts. Nonetheless, the former Heisman winner, who started his college career at the University of Florida, has found love again after splitting from his longtime girlfriend Kia Proctor despite fathering four children with her.

Kia Proctor first gained fame as a dancer under the name 'Hazel' at Washington DC Stadium Club, a strip club in Washington, D.C.

It's unknown if Newton, who is from Atlanta, met Proctor while she was a stripper, but she moved to the Georgia city to work as a party host and pursue a modeling career after her dancing career.

Proctor and Newton began dating in 2013 and first appeared together in public at the Kentucky Derby. In the years after, they showed face at events like the 3rd Annual NFL Honors in New York City in 2014 and began to start a family the following year.

Newton and Proctor's Four Children

Proctor and Newton welcomed their first child the day before Christmas in 2015, a baby boy named Chosen Sebastian Newton. The three-time Pro Bowl quarterback has spoken about his love for fatherhood, even writing a letter to Chosen in The Players' Tribune that also mentioned his relationship with Chosen's baby mama.

"Your mom is the best thing to happen to me," he wrote. "Yet I have failed in some regards. But I still love her unconditionally."

Newton has three other children with Proctor — daughter Sovereign-Dior Cambella Newton in 2017, son Camidas Swain Newton in 2018 and their fourth child, Cashmere Saint Newton in December 2019.

Clearly, Cam is pretty fond of his name. And fashion.

Proctor also has 12-year-old daughter Shakira from a previous relationship. Things between Newton and Proctor began to sour in 2019 which led to a custody battle.

Cam Newton's Girlfriend La Reina Shaw

Newton's relationship with longtime girlfriend Kia Proctor reportedly came to an end in January 2020 amid a report that the NFL player had a secret child with Instagram model La Reina Shaw.

A quick Instagram search reveals that the IG model has more than 2 million followers on social media, looks a whole lot like Kim Kardashian and definitely flaunted a baby bump in 2019. According to Yahoo, Shaw lived in a place above Newton's Atlanta restaurant, Fellaship, and the pair were spotted celebrating New Year's Eve together in 2020.

The two confirmed their relationship in March 2021 after Shaw posted an Instagram story of them working out together.

Now, Proctor and Newton are battling it out in court for custody of their four children. Proctor is also suing Newton for child support, and she may get a hefty check considering the NFL star is worth a whole lot of money.

Cam Newton's Kids

On Father's Day last year, Newton shared an Instagram post with a special message to all the fathers worldwide, but it wasn't all about Newton offering well wishes.

As it turns out, Newton revealed publicly for the first time that he's the father of seven (yes, seven) children. In addition to Chosen, Sovereign-Dior, Camidas and Cashmere, Cam Newton said that his other kids' names are Jaden, Shakira and Caesar (who he had with Shaw).

"Im a proud father of 7.

"a DADDY isnt defined as the man who makes the child {not in all instances}, but rather a MAN who extends his hands and time to help with the child's raising and his heart to love the child through anything!! blood doesnt 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 FATHERs DAY TO US!!"

In 2021, Newton released the documentary "Black Dad" to highlight the QB as a father.

It's not clear who Cam Newton's babymamas are with his other children, but that's not stopping Superman from being a super dad off of the football field.
