Naomi Campbell set the internet ablaze! The model revealed in the most exciting annoucnement that she’s a mom! She shared the big news in the sweetest Instagram post on Tuesday.
Campbell posted a photo of her hand holding the cutest baby feet. “A beautiful little blessing has chosen me to be her mother,” the model captioned under the image. “So honored 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.”
“Oh my God,” fashion designer Marc Jacobs replied under the post. “Today is the day?? How absolutely incredible. How lucky she is and how lucky you are! What a wonderful Mother you will be. Blessings all around.”
Queen and Slim actress and recent new mommy Jodie Smith said, “Many, many, many congratulations to you and to your family — the village that will now rally around you and support you in cultivating that little angel!!! What an incredible blessing!!!”
Fellow model Sessilee Lopez-Holmes said, “Welcome to the best hood ever…Motherhood!!! If you need a night nanny and sleep trainer, I know the best in LA.”
This is Campbell’s first child. She opened up with Vogue Arabia in 2018 about her desire to become a mother. “I’d love to have kids,” she said during the interview. “I don’t discount anything in life. I love kids and always will. When I’m around children, I become a child myself. That’s the little girl I don’t ever want to lose.”
A year earlier, in an interview with Making the Cut she told the publication that she thought about motherhood all the time. “I think about having children all the time. But now with the way science is, I think I can do it when I want.” And, the 50-year-old supermodel appears to be doing just that.
Congratulations to the new mommy and her bundle of joy!
