Naomi Campbell has remained pretty mum about her motherhood journey, but wants her fans to know that so far it’s “a dream.”
The supermodel shocked the world in May when she revealed a glimpse of her baby girl on Instagram after keeping the new addition a secret until that moment. Although she hasn’t shared a full look at the infant with the public just yet, she’s been dropping peeks here and there of the glamorous life of a pop culture icon’s offspring, and reassured those who may be worried about a 51-year-old first-time mother that she’s “really lucky” to have her “dream child.”
“I’m really lucky,” she told “BBC Hard Talk.” “I think I have a dream child. She is wonderful. She’s so very independent already. Very smart, alert. Sleeps 12 hours. A good girl.”
Campbell also promised that she’s teaching her daughter all of the same “strong, independent” values she was brought up with, “right down to the hygiene part.”
Fans were overjoyed for Campbell when she dropped the baby bomb on their timelines, although she has since remained guarded about details surrounding her “little blessing,” choosing not to divulge the baby’s name or father for the time being.
“A beautiful little blessing has chosen me to be her mother,” she captioned her post. “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.”
“Omg tears 😭 Congratulations. I’m so happy for you 🥲”
“Abundant Blessings to your New Joy!”
“Congratulations. What a beautiful photograph too. Your little Angel just won the Mommy Lottery.”
While motherhood seems to be treating her right, the model previously opened up about one area in life that she feels she’s had to sacrifice in order to achieve the career she has: true love.
“I’d say the sacrifice is really finding that soul mate who will understand you,” she told The Cut. “It’s really like you feel if they look at you as if you’re strong … you know, I’m strong, but I’m also sensitive. I know that in relationships I have to compromise.”
