Cam Newton is going to be a dad — again!
The Carolina Panthers quarterback, 27, is expecting his second child with longtime love Kia Proctor, his parents Jackie and Cecil Newton tell NBC Charlotte.
“We’re excited,” Cecil says of the upcoming arrival.
Adds Jackie, “It’s going to be a giddy time of the year for us.”
Newton’s baby on the way will join the couple’s 11-month-old son Chosen Sebastian, who will celebrate his first birthday on Dec. 24.
The mom-to-be has been giving glimpses of her growing bump on Instagram, sharing photos of the family at a pumpkin patch and dressed up for Halloween.
“Family,” Proctor captioned a shot of her holding Chosen, who was dressed up as a Minion, as Newton smiles down at his baby boy.
Although Jackie and Cecil can’t wait to welcome a new grandchild, they admit they’re unsure of Newton’s baby name plans.
“I have no idea what this one’s going to be called, but we’ll be happy,” Jackie says.
The Newtons were in Charlotte to accept an award on their son’s behalf. Charlotte Magazine named Newton Charlottean of the year for his work in the community.
