19 May Naomi Campbell Welcomes First Child — a Baby Girl!
“A beautiful little blessing has chosen me to be her mother,” read the caption.
“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,” wrote Campbell.
The comments section was soon filled with an abundance of love and support from fans and Hollywood’s finest.
“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,” wrote actress Jodie Turner-Smith.
This is the legendary model’s first child. She had not gone public with her pregnancy, so the birth announcement came as a pleasant surprise for her doting fans.
However, she had voiced her interest in motherhood in past interviews.
“I think about having children all the time … But now with the way science is I think I can do it when I want,” she said.
The announcement also arrives a few days before Campbell’s own 51st birthday on May 22.
