Supermodel Naomi Campbell welcomed her daughter last May at the age of 50, and has now answered to speculation that the little one was adopted
Naomi Campbell has declared to the world that her baby was not adopted.
The supermodel posed for pictures with her little girl, revealing her face for the first time, as she told Vogue : “She wasn’t adopted – she’s my child.”
Naomi looked incredible on the cover of the mag as she posed up with her baby cradled in her arms.
Before now, she hasn’t shared any pictures of her baby’s face.
The 51-year-old also told the mag that very few people knew she was planning parenthood.
She said: “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.”
Naomi also talked about her incredible career, which this season will see her walking in shows in Paris, Milan and London for Versace, Alexander McQueen, Balmain and Lanvin.
She said: “I still enjoy it but it’s nerve-racking! Because I’m 51 years old walking with girls who are 18! It’s great to be with these young ‘uns at my age, but I have to say, at one of the shows I was like, ‘Come on, girls, Pick up your feet! Why are you walking so slow?’ I definitely feel like my time was more joyful. We smiled! We got to show off our personalities.”
And talking about becoming a mother figure to a younger generation of black models, she added: “There were lots of times when I would walk in the fashion shows, but I was never picked for the ad campaigns and it would hurt – it really hurt .
“I would have to suck it up and keep moving. Of course, it would have been great to have had that support around me back then, but I’m proud to see it happen now, I’m proud to see the diversity now “
Last September, Naomi opened up about her “independent and smart” baby girl for the first time.
Appearing on BBC Hardtalk, she shared: “I’m really lucky I have a dream child. She’s wonderful.
“She’s very independent already, very smart, alert, sleeps 12 hours. She’s a good girl.”
Naomi had sent fans wild when she made the surprise announcement that she’d become a mum.
She posted on Instagram at the time: “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.”
