Naomi Campbell Posts Rare Throwback of Herself as a Baby & Tags Her Mother

Naomi Campbell has been known across the world as a model, actress and entrepreneur, but now, she's taken on a whole new title: mom.

Campbell secretly gave birth to a baby girl just last week and she posted the news to Instagram saying, “A beautiful little blessing has chosen me to be her mother. So honored 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.”

Now, only a few days after the birth of her daughter, Campbell is celebrating her own birthday. The Face star turned 51 yesterday, and she celebrated the milestone by posting a rare pic of herself as a baby. The vintage snap was shared with the caption, “BLESSED AND GRATEFUL @valeriemorriscampbell.”

In the photo, a wide-eyed Campbell is seen wrapped in a pink baby blanket and staring at the camera. The fashion icon tagged her own mother, Valerie Morris-Campbell, who recently shared her excitement at being a grandma. When Campbell posted the news of her birth, her mother reposted the photo and said: “Congratulations to my daughter Naomi on the birth of her daughter, I’m beyond thrilled as I’ve waited a longtime to be grandmother. @naomi.”

Many were thrilled to see a shot of newborn Campbell, like Andy Cohen, who said, “There she is!!!!! Best birthday gift ever!” Actress Alexia Dechamps commented, “@naomi Darling, stunning friend, HAPPY BIRTHDAY.” Meanwhile, Jackie Aina threw in some astrology, saying, “My favorite Gemini. I love you sis, happy birthday.”

This pic will help tide us over while we wait for more snaps of Campbell's new baby girl.
