This past Sunday, Cam Newton scrambled from eight yards out to score the Carolina Panthers' only touchdown of their Week 16 loss to the Atlanta Falcons. When he reached the endzone, Newton didn't break out his usual dab. Instead, he chose a "rock the cradle" motion with the football.

It seemed odd at first, but it all makes sense now. On Wednesday, Cam went on Twitter to announce that him and his longtime girlfriend, Kia, welcomed a son last week. 

Congrats, Cam and Kia! Now, we must ask... how long before we see his first dab on Instagram?
