Naomi Campbell is letting the world in on her private motherhood journey. The renowned model stopped the world when she welcomed her first child at 50.
Since welcoming her daughter, Campbell is speaking up about her beloved daughter for the first time.
Naomi Campbell Became A Mother In May 2021
As you might know, Naomi broke the internet on May 18, 2021, when she announced she welcomed a baby girl.
The supermodel took to Instagram to break the news in a now-deleted Instagram post. As The Blast previously covered, alongside a heartwarming image of Campbell cradling her daughter’s feet, the model 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.
The post was flooded with congratulatory messages from fans and colleagues, who heartily celebrated the good news.
“The Face” Alum Talks Motherhood
In a cover for the March 2022 issue of British Vogue, Campbell stunned like never before in a black two-piece ensemble as she cradled her baby daughter to her chest. The model looked gorgeous with a full dramatic afro as her mini-me sweetly tried to stare backward at the camera.
The model started off the interview, gushing about her daughter, saying, “She’s a good girl: she sleeps very well, she hardly ever cries and I’m told she’s very alert for her age. She’s just started waving, which is fun. She laughs a lot.”
Campbell revealed that her baby girl is almost talking and is well on her way to walking before even crawling. The doting mother said the mini-Naomi already has six teeth and did exceptionally well while teething. “She’s a trooper,” Campbell gushed.
The “I Feel Pretty” star kept details surrounding her daughter’s birth mostly private, but in her sit-down with Vogue, she shed a little more light on the situation, saying, “She wasn’t adopted – she’s my child.”
The 51-year-old didn’t go into further details, noting that anything more would have to be gotten from her upcoming book, which is still very much in the works.
As for her daughter’s name, Campbell continues to keep it a secret, the same way she kept the news she was expecting a child in the first place. “I can count on one hand the number of people who knew that I was having her,” the model declared.
The handful of people who knew about her daughter’s birth was Campbell’s model colleagues, Cindy Crawford, Linda Evangelista, and Christy Turlington. The girls ruled the scene in the ’90s and early 2000s and have remained close pals ever since.
Campbell revealed that Crawford was the first to meet her daughter, days after she was born, followed by Turlington, who came after two weeks. Evangelista is yet to visit as she is deeply embroiled in her legal battle against Zeltiq’s CoolSculpting.
However, despite keeping the news an utter secret, Campbell describes her baby girl as “the biggest blessing I could ever imagine. It’s the best thing I’ve ever done.”

The proud mother gushed about how the little one didn’t fuss in front of the camera like any other baby would. “She loves the light. She’s inquisitive,” Campbell gushed!
The former Victoria’s Secret Angel disclosed that motherhood has completely changed her in a way she couldn’t imagine. “I’m like a kid again. I’m reliving nursery rhymes, playing and discovering how many great new toys there are out there in the world! And dolls! Things I couldn’t even dream of.”
Concluding her interview, the supermodel revealed that the biggest surprise since becoming a mother has been that her daughter comes first in everything she does. In her words, “Everything I do, I do for her – that’s it. It’s so completely selfless, isn’t it?”
