Naomi Campbell has declared that she is ready for a “new chapter” in her life as she thanked fans for their support following her surprise baby announcement.
The supermodel, 50, shared the news earlier today that she has welcomed a baby daughter.
During a YouTube streaming of her No Filter interview with Diane von Furstenberg, Naomi addressed her fans as she said she was “honoured and humbled”.
She urged her fans to “take notes” of the “life lessons” from Diane but added: “BLESS YOU ALL.”
In the chat during the streaming of the YouTube video, Naomi wrote: “Hello my darlings , thank you so much for the pre birthday wishes …and for my new chapter as a mother I’m honored and humbled.”
She added: “BLESS YOU ALL.”
One fan commented: “I am honestly surprised though to see Naomi in the chat… wasn’t expecting that at all.”
Yet Naomi responded: “IM HANDS ON ,NO FILTER IS MY OTHER. BABY.”
While another fan wrote with balloon and baby bottle emojis: “Congratulations Naomi!I am so excited for you.”
Naomi responded with a heart and prayer emoji: “THANK YOU DEE DENISE.”
This comes after Naomi took to her Twitter account on Tuesday afternoon to share the announcement, as well as an adorable snap of her baby girl’s feet.
She called her new arrival “a little blessing” and an “angel” as she told her followers “there is no greater love”.
In the snap, Naomi cradled the baby’s feet in her hands while the little one appeared to be wrapped in a pink silk blanket embroidered with flowers.
Naomi tweeted: “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.”
Her Twitter followers rushed to congratulate her on her happy news, with one fan tweeting: “Congratulations Queen Naomi. So happy for you and your child. She’s very lucky.”
“Wishing you and your babygirl the best of everything,” another posted.
A third said: “Congratulations sister. Motherhood is the best experience anyone can have.”
Another wrote: “There is no greater challenge but no greater reward. Congratulations.”
Naomi had not announced she was expecting a baby and only revealed the news after her baby girl was born when she tweeted the photo.
She is known to be very private, and has not shared whether or not she is currently in a relationship, or who the baby’s father is.
Speaking to Vogue in 2018, Naomi shared that she would like to have a family one day.
Naomi said: “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.”
But she also told the Wall Street Journal in 2019 that she wasn’t planning on becoming mum any time soon and was surrounding herself with a “chosen family”.
Naomi has been linked to several celebrities in the past, including Liam Payne and Skepta, but she didn’t confirm these rumoured romances at the time.
She said in 2019: “For me, privacy is important to know each other, and I always worry that my job will not allow that.
“But I have ways. I was taught that by Robert De Niro. Being alone doesn’t mean you are lonely.
“I don’t have time to be bored, and I don’t have time to be lonely.”
