“A beautiful little blessing has chosen me to be her mother,” she wrote at the time. “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.”
And months after sharing her sweet news, the fashion icon opened up about becoming a mom, admitting that is was a role she was always looking forward to taking on.
“I always knew that one day I would be a mother, but it’s the biggest joy I could ever imagine,” Naomi said during an interview for British Vogue‘s March 2022 issue alongside her then 9-month-old daughter. “I’m lucky to have her and I know that.”
And she expressed that becoming a mom gave her a new “completely selfless” attitude, adding and she encourages her older friends to have babies as well—as the 50-year age gap wasn’t an issue for her.
“I’m telling them all, do it!” she exclaimed. “Don’t hesitate!”
