Naomi Campbell, 50, has announced she is a mother, four years after crediting science with giving her the opportunity to start a family ‘whenever she wants’. 

The supermodel – who is believed to be single – shocked her Instagram followers on Tuesday as she shared a picture cradling her newborn daughter and announced she had never felt a ‘greater love’.  

Alongside a picture of her baby girl’s feet, she penned: ‘A beautiful little blessing has chosen me to be her mother.

‘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.’

The model gave no further details in the post. MailOnline has contacted Naomi’s representatives for further comment.

Naomi was last linked to rapper Skepta in 2018 but is also believed to have enjoyed a fling with Liam Payne the following year, and has also enjoyed high-profile relationships with Diddy, Robert De Niro and Mike Tyson over the years.  

Naomi had tagged her own mother, Valerie Morris-Campbell in the image, who later reposted the snap captioned: ‘Congratulations to my daughter Naomi on the birth of her daughter, I’m beyond thrilled as I’ve waited a longtime to be grandmother. ❤️ @naomi #proud #mother #grandmother #love #family’.

Naomi then commented on the snap: ‘We love you Mum ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️’

Naomi’s baby announcement comes after she admitted that she would ‘think about having children all the time’ but wasn’t planning to rush herself to start a family.

Speaking to ES Magazine back in 2017, she said: ‘I think about having children all the time. But now with the way science is I think I can do it when I want.’

Asked if she would have the child herself rather than adopt, she replied: ‘Maybe. Maybe… Maybe.’

However, the Vogue cover girl insisted that she did not want to be a single parent so would find a suitable partner first.  

She said: ‘I do want a father figure. I think it’s important. It’s the way I feel today, sitting here talking to you.’ 

NAOMI ON… MOTHERHOOD

‘I think about having children all the time. But now with the way science is I think I can do it when I want.’

‘I do want a father figure. I think it’s important. It’s the way I feel today, sitting here talking to you.’  

‘I’ll see what the universe brings me. For now, what the universe has delivered is very much in the spirit of a chosen family.’

‘Would I adopt? Maybe’ 

‘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.’ 

‘I want the same things as every other woman: the house, the kids, the lot’

In another interview she admitted: ‘I want the same things as every other woman: the house, the kids, the lot.’  

The following year she told Vogue magazine that she would ‘love’ to have a child and wouldn’t rule anything out for the future. 

She explained: ‘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.’

Despite continuously expressing a desire to have children in the years prior, she then said that she was ‘not ready’ for motherhood in 2019.  

Asked if she would have any kids, the model, then 49, told Metro: ‘Not yet… 

‘I’ll see what the universe brings me. For now, what the universe has delivered is very much in the spirit of a chosen family.’

She made the statement shortly after she broke off a fling with One Direction star Liam Payne, 27. 

The same year she was also forced to deny claims she had adopted a child after fans got the wrong end of the stick when she posted a picture cradling a newborn baby on Instagram on Mother’s Day. 

Despite the outpouring of congratulations, Naomi’s representative revealed that she hadn’t adopted and the picture had been taken when Naomi visited an orphanage for abandoned children in Lagos.  

Prior to dating boyband singer Liam, Naomi was in a relationship with grime artist Skepta, 38.   

The couple reportedly dated for around five months in 2018, with the rapper even referencing her in the song Interlude, claiming she wore sexy underwear for him during a video call.

He penned: ‘How can I fall asleep when I’m on this FaceTime with Nao… shh. She got them ­Victoria Secrets that she’s tryna show me.’

In August 2018, Naomi unfollowed Skepta after he posted a baby scan on Instagram, leading fans to question whether or not they might be expecting.  

Neither Liam or Skepta have spoken out publicly on Naomi’s baby news.

Designer Marc Jacobs, 58, appeared to have some inclination that Naomi was to become a mum, writing: ‘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.

Game of Thrones actress Sophie Turner, 25, simply commented a love heart on Naomi’s heartwarming post while Jamie Winstone, 36, said: ‘Wow congratulations Naomi. BIG, BIG LOVE, wow you’re a Mama.’

British Vogue editor Edward Enninful, 49, appeared overwhelmed by Naomi’s news, but also hinted the model’s post may not have been the first time he’s seen the new mum and her daughter together.

He said: ‘Seeing the two of you together made my year. You will bring each other so much joy @naomi.’

Whilst Naomi is notoriously private about her love life, she has been linked to a string of high-profile men in the past. 

In 2017, she was linked to billionaire Hassan Jameel, but this short-lived romance quickly fizzled out and he went on to date Rihanna.

Naomi was also famously linked to Gerard Butler in 2007, P Diddy in 2002 and Leonardo DiCaprio in 1995.

Her longest public relationship was with Russian billionaire Vladislav Doronin, who she dated for five years until 2013.

Naomi also dated Robert De Niro in the early Nineties, and Mike Tyson in the late Eighties, with both relationships clearly ending on good terms.  

Last year, in an interview with Times Weekend magazine, Naomi said she is on good terms with all her previous ex-boyfriends, but admitted she isn’t friends with her ‘last’ ex.

Discussing who she has dated, she said: ‘Why don’t you say it the other way round? Surely it was their privilege just as much as mine to be with them? But yes, I had some wild and exciting times until I changed my life aged 29.

‘Whatever they say about me, I have remained friends with all my exes… except the last one.’

Asked if she means Skepta, she simply said: ‘A lady never discusses the details of her private life.’

Naomi previously insisted 2021 would be ‘an amazing year’, but acknowledged there are ‘a few more bumps to get through’ amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Naomi said earlier this year: ‘At the end of 2020, my main reflections were on the need for us to move upward and forward. We have to rise to every challenge and walk through it. 

‘And we will get through it. 2021 is going to be a great year, we’ve just got a few more bumps to get through first. Nothing disappears overnight, but we just need to get through this first quarter. 

‘After that, I believe that this is going to be an amazing year. Actually, I don’t just believe it will be; I feel it will be.’ 

Still pals: 'I do know that friendship is the thing that lasts. I saw Robert De Niro just before lockdown and I've talked to Mike [Tyson) on the phone,' she said (pictured with Tyson in 1994)
