This is a surprise but not a shock! Naomi Campbell, 50, has welcomed a baby. She announced this on her Instagram, as you can see above. Naomi has spoken before about her desire to be a mother, and she seems to have bouts of broodiness. I would imagine that seeing all of her model friends settled down with kids over the years affected her as well. Naomi captioned the photo:
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.
On her IG, her famous friends all congratulated her, including Marc Jacobs, Zoe Saldana, Jodie Turner-Smith, Erin O’Connor and tons more.
Now I’m thinking about Naomi’s extensive fashion collection, her personal archives which reportedly filled a huge airplane-hanger-sized storage center. Think of what the baby will inherit some day!
As for speculation about how Naomi became a mom… I have no idea, and she has the right to privacy. We “saw” her recently in an Architectural Digest photoshoot and video, showing off her Kenyan villa and she did not appear pregnant, although we don’t know when it was filmed. My assumption would be surrogacy or gestational carrier, but it’s her business and who knows.
