On Tuesday, May 18, 2021, Naomi Campbell announced the birth of her first baby. She opened up about her experience becoming a mother in her cover interview for the March 2022 issue of British Vogue.
Then, on June 29, 2023, she announced that she welcomed her second child, a baby boy, at the age of 53. Many are wondering whether Naomi Campbell used a surrogate — here's what we know.
Naomi Campbell became a mom at 50 and now has two kids. Did she use a surrogate?
With a career spanning four decades, Naomi has achieved the kind of success most people can only dream of. Contemporaries with Linda Evangelista, Cindy Crawford, and Kate Moss, she is often hailed as one of the best supermodels.
Naomi's iconic runway moments include the Versace Spring-Summer 1991 show and the Chanel Spring-Summer 1993 show. A career-oriented person, she started a family years later than fellow superstars like Cindy Crawford.
The cover shoot for the March 2022 issue of British Vogue, which features Naomi's daughter, likely marked a big step for the star, who exercised extreme caution throughout the pregnancy, refusing to share details about her experiences with the media for the most part. Privacy remains a priority for Naomi, who has yet to share her baby daughter's name with the press.
"She wasn’t adopted — she’s my child," Naomi told the outlet, without going into further details.
When she shared the news of her son's birth in 2023, she wrote on Instagram, "My little darling, know that you are cherished beyond measure and surrounded by love from the moment you graced us with your presence. A true gift from god. ... It’s never too late to become a mother."
But she hasn't elaborated further. Naomi has remained pretty private about her kids' lives, so we can probably expect that to continue.
Naomi Campbell has yet to reveal who the father or fathers of her children are.
Over the years, Naomi has been linked to "We Invented the Remix" rapper Sean Combs, "Konnichiwa" rapper Skepta, and The X-Factor alum and One Direction singer and songwriter Liam Payne. Naomi never married, but she was engaged several times.
According to most outlets, Naomi is in a top-secret relationship. So far, she hasn't shared any details about the father or fathers of her children, and that's her prerogative!
As Naomi told British Vogue, she wanted to keep her first journey to motherhood a low-profile affair, and she has no regrets. "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 said.
"I always knew that one day I would be a mother, but it’s the biggest joy I could ever imagine. I’m lucky to have her, and I know that," Naomi said. As she told British Vogue, she is currently on a mission to convert baby-skeptic friends. "I'm telling them all, do it! Don't hesitate!"
