Supermodel Naomi Campbell has announced the birth of a baby girl after she shared a photograph of herself cradling the newborn’s feet in her hands on Instagram. In the caption, Campbell wrote: “A beautiful little blessing has chosen me to be her mother. So honoured to have this gentle soul in my life there are no words to describe the lifelong bond that I now share with you, my angel. There is no greater love."
This will be the first child of the supermodel who has spoken about motherhood in the past. In 2014, she told designer Diane von Furstenberg she “definitely” wanted children no matter what her relationship status would be in the future.
She later told ES Magazine in a rare interview in 2017 that she thought “about having children all the time”, adding: “But now with the way science is I think I can do it when I want.”
Campbell will celebrate her 51st birthday on 22 May.
