Naomi Campbell, 50, revealed on Tuesday, May 18, that she has welcomed a child.
New reports now claim Naomi has been in a relationship in the US privately for the past 18 months.
For several years, the catwalk model has frequently spoken about her desire to become a mum and said “science” can help her to achieve her dreams.
Many fans have speculated that Naomi, who turns 51 on Saturday, May 22, may have used a surrogate and did not carry her baby herself.
But Naomi has remained tight-lipped about it all and only informed a select few members of her friends and family to share her baby news with.
She also kept the information hidden from her team and only told them an hour before yesterday’s announcement.
A source close to Naomi told The Sun last night: “Naomi has really mellowed in the past year and is in a wonderful place in life.
“She has been living in America with her boyfriend and is really happy. It finally felt like the perfect time to become a mother and she is over the moon.
“The first lockdown allowed her to stop and take stock of the important things and she decided now was the time to properly look into starting a family.”
Naomi has previously expressed that she does long to have children, with or without a partner in her life.
In 2014, the supermodel said: “I do want to have children, whether I have a man or not. I will have it on my own.”
