Does Cam Newton really have 7 kids? New England Patriots quarterback once wanted paternity test
Cam Newton and Kia Proctor’s relationship soured in 2019 when it was reported that Newton had a secret relationship -- and a child -- with Instagram model La Reina Shaw
Cam Newton, the quarterback for the New England Patriots of the National Football League, did not reveal his vaccination status when meeting with reporters on Friday, August 6. “It’s too personal to discuss,” Newton said. “I’ll just keep it at that.”
As per NBC News’ ProFootballTalk, if Newton becomes unavailable due to a positive test, which would be ten days away from the field at least, or close contact with an infected person -- five days at the minimum -- quarterback Mac Jones would get the advantage over him. Of course, Jones too has declined to comment on his vaccine status. Last year, Newton tested positive, something that derailed his season and the team’s season.
Cam Newton father to 7 children
In June last year, Newton shared an Instagram post stating, “I’m a proud father of seven.” He wrote, “A daddy isn’t 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 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!!”
But who are these seven children? He named all of them in the post. Newton has four children with his ex, American model Kia Proctor. They are sons Cashmere Saint, Camidas Swain, and Chosen Sebastian, and daughter Sovereign-Dior Cambella. As per The Sun, Proctor first gained fame as a dancer under the name Hazel at a Washington DC strip club. The tabloid reported that she met Newton after she moved to Atlanta to work as a party host and pursue a modeling career. The pair reportedly began dating in 2013 and first appeared together in public at the Kentucky Derby. In 2015, Proctor gave birth to Newton’s first child. Reportedly, Proctor also has a 12-year-old daughter, Shakira, from a previous relationship. Newton, as per the tabloid, has publicly referred to her as his daughter. Newton and Proctor’s relationship reportedly soured in 2019, when it was reported that Newton had a secret relationship with Instagram model La Reina Shaw, which led to a custody battle.
In January of 2020, it was reported that Newton had split from Proctor. Newton also reportedly wanted a DNA test from Proctor over three of their children. Bossip reported that Proctor said that while he was the kids’ father, she did not have a problem with him getting a DNA test as long as he paid for it. As per CheatSheet, Newton and Proctor allegedly split after he had a baby with Shaw, the Queen of the Universe pageant’s former Miss Azerbaijan. Sources told reporters then that she was at the time living in an apartment above his restaurant Fellaship in Atlanta and was there so he could see their son. While Newton did not address the situation with Shaw directly, he shared a post on Instagram to wish his child Caesar Lorenzo Newton on his first birthday in July 2020.
“Happy Birthday Day. King Caesar! I have grown so much with you being her on this earth and I am constantly reminded by what my purpose, discipline & drive is,” Newton wrote on Instagram. “Thank you enjoy your day!!!”
