Naomi Campbell has described becoming a mother at the age of 50 as “the best thing I’ve ever done”.
In a photoshoot for the March issue cover of British Vogue, the supermodel will appear photographed with her daughter. Campbell has never revealed her daughter’s name, but she confirmed to the magazine that she was not adopted.
Campbell, 51, has previously kept any news related to her child private, surprising fans when she announced her arrival on Instagram in May last year.
She posted a picture cradling her newborn daughter’s feet with the caption: “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.”
Very few people even knew she was planning parenthood, Campbell told Vogue. “I can count on one hand the number of people who knew that I was having her. But she is the biggest blessing I could ever imagine. It’s the best thing I’ve ever done.”
Exact details around the arrival of her daughter are unknown. When asked if she would elaborate, she said simply: “She wasn’t adopted – she’s my child.”
The only time Campbell has previously spoken about her daughter was in September last year, when she described her as “a dream child”. She told BBC HardTalk: “She’s wonderful. She’s very independent already, very smart, alert, sleeps 12 hours. She’s a good girl.”
