Naomi Campbell has a daughter! How she hid her pregnancy from the world
Fashion supernova and the 90s modeling icon Naomi Campbell is tearing up headlines today, yet another sign from the heavens saying nostalgia for the time of slap bracelets & middle parts is here to stay. However, these headlines are current news, as publications across the board reported today of the supermodel’s first child.
It has been a minute since we stopped to bask in glorious remembrance of Naomi Campbell’s vibrant career, but she’s never left the minds of fashionistas who’ve worshiped her ferocity over the past several decades. So what’s the latest greatest tea on our queen? Naomi Campbell has a daughter.
First at fifty
People reported today that Naomi Campbell has just had her first daughter. The news first came to fans & well-wishers via Instagram.
Naomi Campbell let the world know herself she’s in for the ride of a lifetime with her first daughter, who comes into the world from Campell who, although you wouldn’t know by looking at her, is starting out motherhood at age fifty.
Naomi Campbell shared her first mother-daughter photo on Instagram with a shot of the model’s single hand holding her newborn’s two tiny feet (sob) with a short message announcing her daughter to the world.
She wrote today, “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.”
Naomi Campbell and her daughter clearly share the Campbell modeling instinct, and the two managed to come off as fierce as ever without even showing their faces; Campbell’s hand bared a beautiful manicure with a thumb ring & bracelet, and Campbell’s daughter wore an itty bitty floral dress draped over her tiny legs. Before long, the comments began piling up under Campbell’s viral post.
Friends & well-wishers
Fashion icons underscored Campbell’s legendary status in various posts wishing her well, with fellow fashionista Donatella Versace writing, “Naomi, today I go from being sista to auntie!! I am so so so happy for you and I can’t WAIT to meet her!! Lots and lots of love, Donatella and Allegra 😘😘😘😘”.
Kate Hudson, Lenny Kravitz, and Kerry Washington showed their love in comments on the post, while Marc Jacobs left a longer message, writing “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. ❤️❤️❤️”.
Campbell’s birth announcement comes after years of rumours & questions about the fashion icon’s personal life, as fans wonder where the pregnancy came from and why the birth comes at such a biologically precarious time for motherhood.
Campbell told Evening Standard magazine back in 2017 that she thought about having children all the time, so the recent news about the model’s daughter shouldn’t be too much of a surprise for any diehard fans.
Furthermore, Campbell got right in front of any discussion about her age & motherhood, telling ES in 2017 she wasn’t in any rush to have a child, saying “now with the way science is I think I can do it when I want”. Exactly, Naomi – and we’re proud of you for doing things your way.
It’s hard to saw how Naomi Campbell kept her pregnancy so well hidden over the last year, but we imagine the same resources allowing her to have a healthy pregnancy at her age, along with the lockdown restrictions keeping us all more hidden amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic had something to do with her smooth operating.
