According to Cam, he decided against naming his child after himself because he was not a big fan of Juniors. He decided to name the kid Chosen because he wanted a name that was both masculine and unique.

Chosen may still be a child, but his father is already hoping to have him play American football. Cam once joked that his son already has scholarship offers. To make it even more exciting, the quarterback once wore a jersey with his son’s name.

It was shortly after the birth of Cam’s fourth child with Kia that it came to light that he had not only impregnated someone else, but the woman had also given birth to a baby for him at almost the same period as Proctor. This was what marked the end of the relationship between Cashmere’s parents. Sadly, the little kid did not enjoy the presence of his parents together as a couple.

That said, while it is not known at what point Cam and LaReina first met or began their relationship, what is clear is that Jaden became a member of Cam’s family following the birth of Caesar, and Cam decided to play the role of a father in the kid’s life.

Cam and his adopted son seem to have a great relationship as the two continue to share each other’s pictures on social media with good things to say. Cam assured his teenage son in a birthday post that he was going to be there with him every step of the way. In another post, Cam shared a photo of all his sons including Jaden, stating that he was raising princes into kings.

There has never been any information on his educational pursuits but with a mother who among other things, is a model and photographer, it is not clear if Jaden is going to become a model, judging by the photos he shares on social media, or he might take to athletics and fitness, following in the footsteps of his father.

Cam Newton Has Been Involved In Child Support Drama

After his 7 years long relationship with Kia Proctor came to an end, Cam and Kia got involved in a custody battle which, according to Kia, was stalled because he did not provide certain documents that were required. The documents included his business information, new NFL contract, and tax returns.

As a result of this, Proctor who asked for primary custody of their kids and a monthly pay of $15,000 in child support, dragged her former baller boyfriend to court for failing to pay utility bills of over $20,000. The payment was temporarily agreed upon by the two until the matter was finally settled.

Kia dragged her former lover to court asking that he be held in contempt for not honoring the agreement. In addition to that, her forensic findings revealed that Newton had two other business ventures under his name which he did not declare.

Before then, Cam and his ex got into a serious legal battle with Cam asking the court to award him permanent child support and joint custody of their 4 kids. He also sued his ex for paternity. On her part, Kia asked to be awarded child support on the basis of the income of the father of her kids.
