One of the original 'Big Six' supermodels, Naomi Campbell is a world renowned icon in the fashion and modelling industry. Here's everything you need to know.
On 18th May 2021, Naomi announced she had become a mother. "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 love," she wrote on Instagram alongside a photo of herself holding the baby's feet.
Yes, Naomi Campbell has one child. She announced the news on 18th May 2021 with a photo of the newborn's feet on social media. In an interview in 2016, the model said she was keen to start a new chapter in her life and become a mother, but was "not rushing to anyone’s drumbeat."
Skepta and Naomi Campbell reportedly met through Vogue Editor Edward Enninful in November 2016. After meeting at the British Fashion Awards, where they both presented awards on the night, they spent time together at the afterparty. Their relationship appears to have since blossomed into something more… Pictures: Getty
Naomi was born on 22nd May 1970, making her 47 years old.
According to Celebrity Net Worth, Naomi's net worth is estimated to be around $60 million (£43.5 million).
Naomi was first romantically linked to British Grime MC Skepta in October 2017, and have since allegedly shared a string of dates after being introduced by mutual friends. In February 2018, the pair appeared to confirm their romance after gracing the cover of British GQ.

Naomi was born in Streatham, South London. Growing up, she lived in Rome where mother, Valerie Morris, was working as a modern dancer. She later moved back to London to live with her relatives while her mother travelled across Europe with the dance troupe Fantastica.
Naomi has been engaged twice, but has never married. Adam Clayton, the bassist from U2, asked her to marry him in 1993 after just a few months of dating, but they broke up a year later. In 1998, Naomi got engaged to Formula One racing head Flavio Briatore, and the couple dated on-and-off until 2003.
Naomi is of Afro-Jamaican descent, and was born to a Jamaican-born mother, a dancer named Valerie Morris. Campbell has never met her biological father, who left Campbell’s mother while she was pregnant with Naomi. Naomi also has Chinese Jamaican ancestry through her paternal grandmother, who carried the family name ‘Ming'.
Aside from modelling and fashion venture, Naomi Campbell also has experience in the world of acting. Campbell played Camilla Marks-Whiteman during the first two seasons of Empire, a US drama centred around a Hip-Hop music and entertainment company. Camilla was love interest to Hakeen, one of the show's recurring characters.
Naomi Campbell is known for her attitude-driven, powerful strut down the catwalk. A perfect combination of sophistication and sass, it's clear to see where Beyoncé got the inspiration for her 'Crazy In Love' music video from! The supermodel has walked for countless fashion houses during her career including Versace, Burberry, Chanel and Louis Vuitton.
Naomi and Rihanna have publicly supported each other in the past and are thought to have been close friends. However, the pair reportedly feuded in 2015 after Naomi insulted the singer in a club - a claim Campbell denied. A year later, they unfollowed each other on Instagram before reports surfaced that Rihanna was dating Naomi’s ex-boyfriend Hassan Jameel. Despite this, Naomi later congratulated Ri on her Fenty Beauty cosmetics line, and since said that she doesn’t have any “beef" with her.
