Carolina Panthers superstar Cam Newton has been dazzling fans with his stellar play — and dabbing — all season, and now the quarterback has some new plays to call. Newton took to Twitter to announce that he and his girlfriend are the proud parents of a bouncing baby boy.

The rumors of Newtown and his girlfriend, a former model, expecting a little one began to swirl around earlier this years. Despite the knowledge of the situation, Newton didn’t allow the impending daddy duties to stand in the way of he and the Panthers dominating the NFL. But now that the season is winding down, perhaps Newton felt it was time to let the world in on the big news.

“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!” tweeted Newton Wednesday (Dec. 30) evening.

He added, “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.”

The only way that Newton can add a cap to this already amazing season is to win the upcoming Super Bowl championship. The Panthers have been named a favorite to win it all, even after a stunning loss to the Atlanta Falcons this past Sunday.

Congrats to Cam and his girlfriend, and we wish good health to his baby boy!
