‘She’s my child’: Naomi Campbell opens up about her daughter

Naomi Campbell's nine-month-old baby girl has made her British Vogue debut. The supermodel, who gave birth to her first child in May at the age of 50, remained tight-lipped about the baby's conception, saying only:

She wasn’t adopted – she’s my child.

In an Instagram post that she has since removed, Naomi shocked her admirers by revealing she had become a mother for the first time last year. Naomi's baby was reportedly born through surrogacy, but she has never confirmed this, nor has she divulged the identity of the child's father.

Secret blessing

The mother-daughter duo now appears on the cover of the March issue of Vogue, revealing how she kept her baby's arrival a secret. Naomi said in an interview with British 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. She’s a good girl: she sleeps very well; she hardly ever cries and I’m told she’s very alert for her age. She’s just started waving, which is fun. She laughs a lot. She’s almost talking.
I think she might walk before she crawls. And she’s got six teeth already.

Naomi's daughter, like her trendy mother, has a wardrobe that most people would covet. Naomi confirmed:

She has a really nice closet thanks to so many designers and friends who have sent her some lovely things, but wow, kids grow fast, don’t they?

Reportedly, Naomi's baby’s father was a multi-millionaire businessman living in New York. Naomi kept her pregnancy news so private that it's thought she didn't even tell her staff until just hours before the announcement.

New vs Old

Naomi graced the cover of Vogue for the 67th time, and she opened up about still modelling in her fifties while posing with her daughter. Naomi explained:

I still enjoy it but it’s nerve-racking. I’m 51 years old walking with girls who are 18.

Naomi credits her drive as a young model to her fellow prominent 90s models Linda Evangelista, Cindy Crawford, and Christy Turlington, who she says inspired her. The foursome was the inspiration for the term supermodel, and Naomi told Vogue that she didn't think today's stars could keep up. She continued:

It was an incredible time, but we worked hard. We did eight shows a day and then we would go and celebrate with the designers in the evening. I wonder sometimes if models now could have kept up with us.

She's now become a mother figure and mentor to young models like Sudanese-Australian model, Adut Akech and Somalian born beauty Ugbad Abdi.
