On the pitch, NFL star Cam Newton is a something of a beast.
But away from the field, the Carolina Panthers star quarterback has been tamed by a former stripper.
Newton, 29, didn’t have the best of evenings on Thursday as the Panthers were beaten 52-21 by the in-form Pittsburgh Steelers.
It was a bad day at the ‘office’ for the quarterback, who suffered five sacks and threw one interception.
With any luck, his long-term girlfriend Shakia Proctor was waiting at home to console him.
These days, she prefers the quiet life, spending much of her time with her family.
But what else do we know about Shakia? Here’s the lowdown…
Who is Shakia Proctor?
Known as Kia to friends and family, she was born in the Virginia and Maryland area.
Her parents are Jerome and Anne Marie Proctor.
She used to work at Stadium Club, a strip joint in Washington, DC. Her job title was ‘bar dancer’.
While working as a ‘bar dancer’ at the venue, she went by the name of Hazel.
Later, she reportedly moved into the world of glamour modelling.
When did Kia Proctor start dating Cam Newton?
Kia and Newton were first spotted together at the Kentucky Derby back in 2013.
A few months later, they were seen again at the 2014 NFL Honours.
However, it was not until they stepped out side-by-side at the NFL post season awards ceremony in 2014 that Newton confirmed they were in fact an item.
They’ve been together ever since.
Do Kia Proctor and Cam Newton have children?
The couple’s first child, a son called Chosen Sebastian, was born on Christmas Eve, 2015. Kia then gave birth to their daughter, Sovreign-Dior Cambella, in February 2017.
They welcomed their third child, another boy, in July.
Announcing the arrival of Chosen in 2015, Newton tweeted: "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."
Kia has another child from a previous relationship.
