Naomi Campbell has introduced her daughter to the world as she opened up about the “blessing” of becoming a mother later in life.

From the moment Naomi Campbell announced she was a mother in May 2021, fans were left delighted and more than a little surprised by the supermodel’s unexpected baby news. Having kept her pregnancy a secret, she confirmed her little one’s arrival in typically stunning style with a sweet black-and-white photograph showing just her daughter’s feet. Describing her baby as her “angel”, Naomi declared that there “is no greater love” than that she has for her child. 

Now the fashion icon, who became a mother for the first time at 50 years old, has spoken out about life with her “inquisitive” daughter. During an enlightening interview with British Vogue, the model shared the limelight on the prestigious magazine’s March issue cover with her equally beautiful daughter. 

This artistic photograph is the first time fans have been treated to a glimpse of her daughter since her birth was announced by Naomi. Though it seems there are still a few questions that seem destined to be left unanswered as Naomi has chosen to keep her baby’s name private. 

Nor has she disclosed who her daughter’s father is, though the model did get candid when it came to addressing speculation about whether she welcomed her child via adoption. . 

“She wasn’t adopted—she’s my child,” Naomi revealed to the publication, as she’s reportedly waiting to reveal further details in an upcoming book.

And it’s not just fans who were left in the dark about Naomi Campbell’s pregnancy. She explained that only a select few people knew she was set to become a first-time mom, describing being a parent as the “best thing”. 

“I can count on one hand the number of people who knew that I was having her,” she disclosed. “But she is the biggest blessing I could ever imagine. It’s the best thing I’ve ever done.”

Naomi also explained, “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. She’s almost talking. I think she might walk before she crawls. And she’s got six teeth already.” 

Already her daughter seems to be very much at home in front of the cameras, just like her famous mother. And this hasn’t gone unnoticed by Naomi, who praised her baby’s “inquisitive” nature. 

“She loves the light. She’s inquisitive,” Naomi shared. “She was looking at everyone—she looks at people right in the eye and for a very long time. She was taking it all in.”

While this might be the first time the proud mom and her baby have been joint cover stars, they’ll be many fans hoping it won’t be the last.
