Naomi Campbell can add being a mommy to her list of duties. The supermodel debuted her 9-month-old daughter in the latest British Vogue cover. Though, she’s not sharing too much information as of yet, as she plans to hold more details for her upcoming memoir.
“She’s a good girl: she sleeps very well, she hardly ever cries and I’m told she’s very alert for her age. She’s just started waving, which is fun. She laughs a lot. She’s almost talking,” she said of her daughter while also confirming that she wasn’t adopted, Vogue reports. “I think she might walk before she crawls. And she’s got six teeth already.”
Campbell announced her transition to motherhood in May 2021 by posting a photo of her baby’s feet posed between her hands. But tells the magazine she was very private regarding her journey to welcome her first child.
“I can count on one hand the number of people who knew that I was having her,” she said. “But she is the biggest blessing I could ever imagine. It’s the best thing I’ve ever done.”
“She loves the light. She’s inquisitive. She was looking at everyone – she looks at people right in the eye and for a very long time. She was taking it all in,” she added.
Now that she’s almost a year into her new life role, the model describes the feeling as “the biggest joy I could ever imagine.”
“I always knew that one day I would be a mother,” she said. “I’m lucky to have her and I know that.”
She goes on, saying that her daughter has transformed her into a child again as she experiences developmental milestones with her baby.
“I’m like a kid again. I’m reliving nursery rhymes, playing and discovering how many great new toys there are out there in the world! And dolls! Things I couldn’t even dream of,” she said. “My daughter comes first. Everything I do, I do for her – that’s it. It’s so completely selfless, isn’t it?”
