Naomi Campbell may have surprised fans when she announced this week that she’d welcomed her first child. But people close to the 50-year-old supermodel have apparently seen motherhood on Naomi’s horizon for at least a decade. “She’s wanted a baby for a long time, more than 10 years,” a source tells People. “And anyone who’s surprised Naomi is having a baby on her own, her own way, and on her own timetable doesn’t know Naomi Campbell. Hasn’t she redefined everything she’s ever touched?” The insider’s comments align with some of what Naomi’s friends posted when she announced her daughter’s arrival on Instagram. Helena Christensen, for example, said she “always knew” Naomi would “be a mama” someday. And as People reminds us, Naomi herself told the Evening Standard back in 2017, “I think about having children all the time. But now with the way science is I think I can do it when I want.” Mission accomplished!
