‘There are no words to describe the lifelong bond that I now share with you, my angel. There is no greater love,' added the supermodel.

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."

Fans and celebrity friends could not get over the news, flooding the comment sections with congratulatory messages.

Singer Rita Ora, 30, said:

"No one deserves this more."

"Oh my goodness congrats lady! What a blessing!!"

"Oh my God! Today is the day?? How absolutely incredible. How lucky she is and how lucky you are! What a wonderful mother you will be. Blessings all around."

Speaking about starting a family in a candid chat with Vogue in 2018, she British supermodel said she would love to have kids.

"I don’t discount anything in life. I love kids and always will," she said.

‘For me, privacy is important to know each other, and I always worry that my job will not allow that."

‘But I have ways. I was taught that by Robert De Niro. Being alone does not mean you are lonely. I do not have time to be bored, and I don’t have time to be lonely," she added.

Well, it looks like that time will be filled up by dirty nappies and nursery rhymes.

Naomi was appointed the magical Kenya international tourism ambassador by Tourism and Wildlife Cabinet Secretary (CS) Najib Balala in January 2021.
