Did Naomi Campbell have baby via surrogacy? Model, 50, had credited science for motherhood 'whenever she wants'

British model and actress Naomi Campbell has welcomed her first child, she revealed to stunned fans. Campbell announced the birth of her daughter via a cryptic Instagram post but did not delve into further details. The 50-year-old has previously hinted at becoming a mother but also seemed unsure about the prospect.
Campbell is currently not dating anyone or in a relationship, so that begs a very important question - how did she have her child? Social media is filled with theories since the model has refused to address the topic. Campbell famously keeps her personal life private and little is known about her love life. So how did Campbell become a mother? A look into her past interviews reveals the route she could have chosen to go down. Of course, this is all mere speculation for now, since we don't have an official word from her or her family. But here's our best guess.
How did Campbell become a mother?
All roads point to the option of surrogacy. We know Campbell didn't give birth naturally and it seemed unlikely she would adopt. In the past, Campbell has often spoken fondly about motherhood but admitted she wasn't in a rush to get there. "'I think about having children all the time. But now with the way science is I think I can do it when I want," she told ES Magazine in 2017. That statement is the best clue we have.
What is the science she is referring to? It's unclear since she never explained further, but she did hint at methods like surrogacy. "Maybe", she replied when asked by ES if she would have a child rather than adopt. But then again, Campbell also insisted on having a spouse around, which doesn't seem to be the case currently. "'I do want a father figure. I think it's important," she said. Despite not being in a relationship, she seems to have welcomed a child, so maybe she did turn to adoption? Only she knows!
That said, Campbell has made her intentions on motherhood clear. "I want the same things as every other woman: the house, the kids, the lot," she said in another interview that year. "I’d love to have kids. I don’t discount anything in life. I love kids and always will," she said in another interview in 2018. But despite those intentions, she made it clear in 2019 that motherhood was off the table, for a while. Following her breakup with Liam Payne, she told Metro, "Not yet... I'll see what the universe brings me," when asked about having kids.
Campbell was briefly called a mother by social media after a photo she posted on Mother's Day in 2019. In the photo, she was seen with a child in her arms, leaving fans to wonder whether she had adopted. Her representative then cleared the air and said it was simply a photo taken during a visit to an orphanage in Lagos. Now, after a rollercoaster few years, it seems like she's taken the plunge.
Campbell hasn't revealed the name of her baby girl. All she said in her post was "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." Maybe in the future, she will reveal more details, but for now, we'll just have to speculate.
