Supermodel and actress Naomi Campbell welcomed her first baby, she announced on Instagram, sharing a sweet photo of her hand holding the infant’s feet. “A beautiful little blessing has chosen me to be her mother, 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 gr-eater love,” she captioned a photo of herself holding the newborn’s feet.
It is unclear who the father is and whether Campbell gave birth, h*r*d a surrogate or adopt-ed the little one.
A source exclusively tells Page Six, “Naomi has been wanting to be a mother for a long time and it finally happened. She is the godmother to many friends and family’s kids and has always looked forward to the day of starting her own family.” Zoe Saldana commented, “oh my goodness congrats lady! What a blessing!!!”
Marc Jacobs wrote, “Oh my God!!!!! 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. ??????.”
Andy Cohen chimed in, “??????????????.”
Fellow new mom Sophie Turner left a simple red heart on the post, while Jodie Turner-Smith wrote, “many many many congratulations to you and to your family— the village that will now rally around you and support you in cultiv-ating that little angel!!!! what an incredible blessing!!! ???.”
Hoda Kotb, who became a mom at the age of 52 when she ad-opt-ed daughter Haley Joy in 2017, teared up on Tuesday’s “Today” show while speaking about Campbell’s new baby and refl*ct!ng on the first time she was able to tell a str-ang-er that she was a mother.
“Literally I dead-stopp-ed when that woman asked me, ‘Do you have kids?’ and I looked at her and I go, ‘I do.’ … It was so moving,” Kotb, now 56, said.
Campbell has been open in the past about wanting to welcome a baby into her life.
“I think about having children all the time,” she told Evening Standard magazine in May 2017. “But now with the way science is, I think I can do it when I want.”
Campbell later told WSJ. Magazine in October 2019 that she was open to whatever “the universe brings” her.
The businesswoman was previously linked to former One Direction singer Liam Payne, businessmen Vladislav Doronin and Flavio Briatore, Oscar winner Leonardo DiCaprio and U2 bassist Adam Clayton.
Congratulations! Sending lots of love to Naomi and her baby girl.
