I'm not crying, you're crying!

Hope you have tissues nearby because you will definitely tear up while watching this video that Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton dedicated to his son, Chosen.

"Don't be like me, son, be better than me," the football player says in the video, which he posted to Facebook Wednesday afternoon. Newton describes his hopes and dreams for his baby boy, promising to be proud of him no matter what.

"You don't have to be an athlete to be accepted by me, you can be whatever you want."

Newton also takes time to praise his wife Kia Proctor, adding, "Your mom is the best thing to ever happen to me. Yet I have failed in some regards, but I still love her unconditionally."
