Cameron, who is coming off a 65-goal season that helped steer Geelong to the premiership, has revealed that he and his partner Indi are expecting the birth of their child in the early rounds of the home and away season.
The 29-year-old could join partner-in-crime Tom Hawkins in missing the Cats' season opener at the MCG against the Magpies on Friday, March 17, with the latter in a race against the clock to overcome a foot injury in time for the game.
The duo combined for 132 goals last year, five of which came in the season-deciding win over Sydney, to be recognised as members of the 2022 All-Australian team alongside fellow forward Tyson Stengle and defensive pair Tom Stewart and Mark Blicavs.
The Cats could begin their premiership defence without their star forward pairing however, with Cameron to prioritise the birth of his firstborn over playing duties.
“There's a fair few," Cameron said. "Most of them have about three."
“Last year I saw Isaac (Smith) sleeping at certain times before a few pretty big games and you could tell they'd had a late night.
“From what I've heard having one, hopefully, the baby is a really good sleeper, is ok, but when you have three or four the hands are really full.”
