Supermodel Naomi Campbell, 50, has announced the birth of a baby girl.
She shared a photograph of herself cradling the newborn’s feet in her hands on Instagram. This is Campbell’s first child.
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.”
The supermodel 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.
The supermodel’s fans, celebrity friends and family flooded her social media with messages of congratulations and well wishes.
Her mother, Valerie Morris Campbell, said in a post on Instagram alongside the same picture: “Congratulations to my daughter Naomi on the birth of her daughter, I’m beyond thrilled as I’ve waited a longtime to be grandmother.”
