Naomi Elaine Campbell is an English model, actress, singer, and businesswoman. She began her career when she was just a teenager; at only 15 years of age, Campbell started her journey as a model, and now she is one of the most well-established and recognizable models in the industry.
In 2020, the model-actress became a mother for the first time and gave birth to a baby girl – at the age of 50.
She shared an adorable photo on her Instagram and announced the arrival of her daughter.
“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 greater love.”
Very few people knew about her pregnancy since Naomi had kept it private. So, when she finally announced the news on social media, everyone was surprised.
“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. Marc Jacob wrote on the model’s photo.
In one of her interviews with The Vogue, Campbell said that she didn’t want to make it ‘a news,’ especially during her pregnancy, so she kept it as private as possible.
“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.”
She also said that,
“I always knew that one day I would be a mother, but it’s the biggest joy I could ever imagine. I’m lucky to have her, and I know that.”
Although it is still unknown how exactly she became a mother at this age, the model frequently expressed her desire to become a mother in many of her past interviews,
In 2017, she told the Evening Standard Magazine, “I think about having children all the time,’ she says.’But now, with the way science is, I think I can do it when I want.”
And when she was asked if she would like to have her own baby or adopt one, she answered,
“Maybe… Maybe. I don’t want to be a single parent, though. I do want a father figure. I think it’s important.”
While talking to The Vogue Arabia, she once said that,
“I’d love to have kids. I don’t discount anything in life. I love kids and always will; when I’m around children, I become a child myself. That’s the little girl I don’t ever want to lose.”
Her announcement about the baby raised many brows and intrigued many minds. People were shocked that she gave birth at the age of 50. And although the model didn’t reveal many details about her motherhood journey, it can be said that every woman has her own timeline, and things happen according to that and by God’s will, of course.
