Naomi Campbell has welcomed her first child — a baby girl.
The supermodel, who is 50 and fabulous, announced the news on Instagram.
“A beautiful little blessing has chosen me to be her mother,” Campbell captioned the Tuesday post, which included a close-up image of her newborn’s feet. “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.”
Her comments section was filled with congratulations from fans and Campbell’s celebrity friends.
“Many many many congratulations to you and to your family,” wrote Jodie Turner-Smith, “the village that will now rally around you and support you in cultivating that little angel!!!! what an incredible blessing!!! 💞💞💞”
Earlier this month, Campbell made headlines after she shared that she regrets not speaking out against racism sooner, explained that fear of reprisals and being isolated from the industry led to her longtime silence.
Campbell made history as the first Black model to make the cover of French Vogue in 1988. Despite experiencing decades of racist discrimination behind the scenes, she only recently began to share some of those experiences with the public.
The stunning actress also revealed that she is currently working on a docuseries with fellow models Linda Evangelista, Christy Turlington, and Cindy Crawford.
The documentary centers on the lack of rights models have to their images and catalogs of work.
“One of the things that’s really come to surface right now for me is that we don’t have any control over our image as models, and that’s really sad. When I was doing my book with Taschen, there were a few photographers whose names I won’t say, but who we do know and who I’ve worked for over the years for, like, one dollar, who came back saying they wanted all this money to be in the book. And I was like, “Excuse me, you’ve forgotten,” she explained.
