Mzansi social media users have joined the thousands around the world who congratulated Naomi Campbell after she became a mother for the first time at 50.
The supermodel took to social media on Tuesday afternoon to make the huge announcement to the world:
“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 I now share with you, my angel. There is no greater love.”
South Africans gathered in her mentions to show love to the stunner and congratulate her on the beautiful addition to her family.
Social media user @MartinMaitu said:
“Congratulations! Please bring her home for her South African child welcoming ceremony to be performed. Her name on behalf of all South Africans is Naluthandolwam.”
“Congratulations on your little Princess, Queen! Hope she will bring you as much love, laughter, joy & happiness as my girls give me.”
“Building a career 1st and have children later on.”
“I'm welcoming my 1st at 55 then 2nd at 65 and 3rd at 75.”
Meanwhile Briefly News previously reported that Magical Kenya Tourism Ambassador and top international model Naomi Campbell has surprised many after disclosing that she is a new mom and secretly welcomed a baby girl.
The 50-year-old supermodel announced her daughter’s arrival on social media, vowing that there was no greater love.
Taking to her various social media platforms on Tuesday, May 18, she blessed us all with a shot as she clutched her baby girl’s tiny feet in her hands.
Naomi, who made the announcement four years after crediting science with allowing her to start a family whenever she wants, did not reveal her baby's name.
Naomi tagged her own mother, Valerie Morris-Campbell in the image, who later reposted the snap captioned:
"'Congratulations to my daughter Naomi on the birth of her daughter, I’m beyond thrilled as I’ve waited for a long time to be a grandmother."
