Did Naomi Campbell adopt? Fans are curious as the model, 50, shared a photo of her baby girl on social media earlier today. Many are wondering if she adopted or if she used a surrogate, as fans didn’t know she was set to become a mum.

So, do we know whether Naomi Campbell adopted or used a surrogate?

How did Naomi Campbell have a baby?

On social media today, many people have been wondering how Naomi Campbell had a baby. This is due to the risks attached with having a baby naturally at the age of 50, and the fact that Naomi Campbell had made no previous public announcement that she was pregnant.

In a 2017 interview with ES Magazine, Naomi Campbell talked about having her own children. She said she often thinks about starting a family but wasn’t going to rush to do so.

She added: “I think about having children all the time. But now with the way science is I think I can do it when I want.”

In the same interview, she was asked whether she would have the child herself rather than adopt. She said: “Maybe. Maybe…Maybe.”

So far, so inconclusive.

In 2019, Campbell told the Wall Street Journal that she wasn’t ready to become a mum just yet – adding that she was happy with surrounding herself with a “chosen family” for now.

Did Naomi Campbell adopt or use a surrogate?

So, this has led to many fans being curious about if Naomi Campbell did adopt or if she used a surrogate to have her baby girl.

In her announcement post on Instagram, she said: “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.”

Famous friends of Naomi’s replied to this post, with designer Marc Jacobs commenting: “Oh my God!!!! Today is the day?? How absolutely incredible.” This suggests that her close friends probably knew that she would be expecting a child, but that it was not publicly known.

So, although it is not known whether Naomi Campbell did adopt or if she used a surrogate, it is clear that she has wanted to start a family for a long time and is now in the position to do so.
