Even designers got in on the action, with Marc Jacobs commenting: “Oh my God!!!!! Today is the day?? How absolutely incredible. How lucky she is and how lucky you are! What a wonderful mother you will be. Blessings all around.”
Campbell’s mother, Valerie Morris-Campbell, also celebrated the announcement, posting the same picture to her own Instagram page in which she applauded her daughter’s decision to become a mother. “Congratulations to my daughter Naomi on the birth of her daughter, I’m beyond thrilled as I’ve waiting a longtime to be grandmother.”
News of the bub comes after Campbell told Vogue Arabia in a 2018 interview: “I’d love to have kids. I don’t discount anything in life. I love kids and always will. When I’m around children, I become a child myself. That’s the little girl I don’t ever want to lose.”
It certainly adds to Campbell’s already busy schedule. Campbell has been tirelessly campaigning for catwalk diversity and just recently in December, the supermodel flew to Lagos to promote African fashion for Arise fashion week, for which she is a patron and mentor. On top of this, she created a YouTube show, No Filter with Naomi, which gave her fans a rare insight into her private life and her close friendships. Who can forget the episode where she revealed her comprehensive preflight hygiene routine in July 2019, something that many have come to adopt in the time of Covid-19.
