Supermodel Naomi Campbell is known for being strikingly beautiful, having a direct personality and ferocious signature runway walk. Campbell now will also be known as a mom! On Tuesday Campbell announced via Twitter that she was a new mom and even included a photo of her new baby’s feet.
“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,” Campbell tweeted.
Ms. Campbell’s surprise announcement comes as a shock to some fans, being that Naomi Campbell’s pregnancy, or surrogacy, was completely under wraps and non-publicized.
“All this time NAOMI CAMPBELL was pregnant???? I love how everyone is just surprising us. First Leigh-Anne was pregnant, then Ariana Grande got married and now Naomi Campbell. Love to see it” a fan tweeted.
Some fans shock also stemmed from the assumption that Ms. Campbell would remain childless.
“can’t believe naomi campbell is a mom. why i thought she was gonna spend her whole life being childless,” someone tweeted.
While some may have assumed Campbell would remain childless, motherhood has always been on Ms. Campbell’s agenda.
“I’d love to have kids. I don’t discount anything in life. I love kids and always will,” Campbell said in a 2018 interview with Vogue Arabia. “When I’m around children, I become a child myself. That’s the little girl I don’t ever want to lose.”
The high fashion model having her first child at 50-years-old further proves that opportunities for motherhood aren’t impossible after 40, unconfining women to the constraints of the biological clock construct. Additionally, Ms. Campbell sets the example that women don’t have to fear or race against time.
“Naomi Campbell having her baby at 50 gives me the same fuzzy feeling my mom getting remarried at 66 gave me live yo dreammmmsss, follow your purpose. Don’t settle for an arbitrary timeline for noooobodyyyy. Everything you want will come,” a fan tweeted.
