Supermodel Naomi Campbell rocked our world this afternoon when she announced that she has become a mother! The iconic model displayed pictures of her cradling a newborn’s feet on Instagram, with the heart-melting 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.”

We’re actually in tears now – give us a moment!
The news seems to be a surprise to many in the fashion industry, as the model did not announce her intentions to become a parent this year. Congratulations have poured in from all over the world, She told the Evening Standard in 2017 that “I think about having children all the time.”
The famously career-oriented fashionista went on to say “But now with the way science is I think I can do it when I want.”
As ever, iconic Naomi is only giving away what she wants to share, and we respect this new mama for doing things her way!
It’s very likely that the baby was conceived with some medical help, which could include egg-freezing, egg or sperm donation and IVF. The baby could also have been gestated by a surrogate. Of course – none of these medical interventions takes away from the bond and beauty of this wonderful new arrival. Science and nature both help to create a lot of babies – and however the baby that made the fierce and fantastic Naomi Campbell a mother came into the world – we are all just helplessly melting with the utter cuteness and fabulousness of the whole, unexpected situation.
Seriously – someone needs to come and pick us up off the floor right now! We’re a mess, in the best possible way! Pass us a tissue, it’s been an emotional day!
