DID NAOMI CAMPBELL ADOPT HER BABY?
Campbell announced the birth of her baby girl in May 2021. The news surprised fans, as she had never been seen pregnant in public. Breaking her silence about whether her daughter is adopted, she said:
"She wasn't adopted – she's my child."
While the television personality refused to share more details about her only child, she admitted that she told her family and close circle of friends that she had plans to become a mother.
Previously known for her wild partying ways, Campbell seems to be yearning for a simpler life with a little one to look after. She waited until she was 50 to become a mother.
She took inspiration from her close supermodel friend Iman, who welcomed her daughter, Lexi, at a mature age. Iman gave birth to her daughter at 45 after marrying her late husband and legendary singer David Bowie.
WHO IS THE FATHER OF NAOMI'S DAUGHTER?
Campbell's motherhood set tongues wagging. In the wake of rumors that the TV actress' daughter was adopted, speculation about the girl's father also arose.
The iconic model has yet to reveal her daughter's name officially.
When the "Empire" star's daughter was born, Campbell was allegedly dating a "secret boyfriend." She was also reported to be living with the unknown guy for more than a year.

Before the alleged secret boyfriend came into the picture, Campbell was rumored in 2018 to be pregnant with her ex-boyfriend, rapper Skepta. However, the fashion model shut down the rumors.
