Naomi Campbell is a second-time mother at 53: The model boasts a star-studded dating history!
A numberable few have reached pinnacles similar to Naomi Campbell's. The British supermodel, who cemented her impeccable brand in the 90s and shared a coinciding success with the likes of Cindy Crawford, Christy Turlington, Linda Evangelista, and Kate Moss, still thrives on her pre-noughties fame.
Born Naomi Elaine Campbell on May 22, 1970, in London, her illustrious career trajectory is often based on a chance encounter. Campbell was reportedly scouted by a model scout who discovered her meandering around as a teenager in London's West End.
Since the declared cessation of the supermodel era in the late 90s, Campbell has branched her career into business, activism, philanthropy, and cultural ambassadorship.
Naomi Campbell Welcomes Second Baby!
At 53, Campbell has never been married. The model is believed to be single in 2023. Naomi's stance on marriage or romantic relationships might look bleak to spectators, but at least, it hasn't stopped the fashionista from becoming a mother and starting her family.
Campbell recently announced the birth of her second child, a son. Sharing a sweet snippet of herself holding the tiny hands of her newborn, and her 2-year-old daughter, Naomi wrote, "My little darling, know that you are cherished beyond measure and surrounded by love from the moment you graced us with your presence."
The surprise comes two years after the supermodel became a mom for the first time in May 2021. "A beautiful little blessing has chosen me to be her mother," Campbell wrote at the time. The Brit has since been occasionally candid about her experience as a mother. And in doing so, she has also fervidly encouraged older women to delve into motherhood.
"It's never too late," Campbell wrote in a post while touching on the unparalleled joy of being a mother. The supermodel is yet to reveal her newborn's name and it looks like she won't be disclosing it anytime soon, as her 2-year-old daughter's name still remains a mystery.
Since announcing her motherhood journey to the world, fans have had many coherent questions about the deets. For starters, fans are curious if Naomi shares her children with a partner. Secondly, the process via which she welcomed her offspring. The model previously denied adopting her daughter.
Campbell, 53, has welcomed a son!
"She wasn't adopted – she's my child," said the frustrated single mother amid the media's inundated speculations. Campbell was spotted with a visible bump on the New York Fashion Week runway, just days before she announced the arrival of her daughter. It, hence, seems plausible that she is, indeed, the biological mother of her firstborn.
The same can't be said about Naomi's secondborn. In her interview with Evening Standards in May 2017, the model expressed her wish to become to mother. And asserted her hope and faith in science for making it look achievable. Fans' best guest at the moment is that the model welcomed her son via surrogacy.
Inside Naomi Campbell's Romantic History!
The supermodel has had her share of relationships over the years. But not one of the many men has been lucky enough to exchange vows with the stunning beauty. Campbell's first notable relationship was with U2 bassist Adam Clayton, with whom she got engaged and broke up within a year of dating.
Naomi suffered one more failed engagement with Flavio Briatore, the Formula One racing head. Campbell started dating Flavio in 1998 and got engaged to him before calling it quit in 2003. Briatore went to date model Heidi Klum and even welcomed a daughter with Klum, but fondly looked back on his romance with Naomi.
The long-estranged couple shares a cordial bond. Naomi's next boyfriend, Sean “Diddy” Combs, brought a brief bliss in the model's life. Despite keeping her romantic life on the low side, Campbell's association with powerful names has brought her some unneeded attention.
The supermodel dated Russian billionaire Vladislav Doronin for five years, from 2008 to 2013. The Brit beauty called it quits with the billionaire when she caught him red-handed with model Luo Zilin.
The London-born model doesn't share an amicable, if not bad-blood, relationship with her affluent ex, who counter-sued Naomi after she sued him for the return of some items, in 2020. Naomi's past rapport with Saudi businessman, Hassan Jameel, is a known affair.
In fact, Naomi was Jameel's preceding flame before Rihana started dating him in 2017. The model's relatively discreet romantic history also includes a man 15 years her senior, Louis C Camilleri, who shared a brief stint with Naomi in 2017.
Campbell has even experienced romance with younger men. She was rumored to be dating rapper Skepta, 13 years her junior, in early 2018. She was later linked with former One Direction star, Liam Payne, in late 2018. The duo's romance fizzled out after just four months, with sources claiming that the supermodel found Payne to be "too clingy."
Aside from the above-known romances, Campbell has had a number of unconfirmed and speculated relationships. She has been linked with names like Robert De Niro, Leonardo DiCaprio, and Usher, over the years.
