Legendary supermodel Naomi Campbell has become a mother at age 50.

"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 joy."

Naomi is famously very guarded about her personal life, though she has spoken in the past about her desire to start a family.
In a 2017 interview with The Evening Standard 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."
In 2018, Campbell said that she'd love to have kids during an interview with Vogue.
"I'd love to have kids," she said. "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."
When asked about having children in 2019, the model said: "I'll see what the universe brings me."
