Naomi has been very private about her daughter and didn’t announce she was expecting a child until announcing her arrival in an Instagram post.
In an interview with British Vogue, Naomi insisted her daughter wasn’t adopted while showing her face for the first time.
The supermodel stunned fans by announcing the birth of her daughter in May, just weeks after she walked the New York Fashion Week runway with no visible baby bump.
But she says the child – whose biological father was never named – is hers amid growing speculation about her biological parentage.

Speaking to the latest issue of British Vogue while posing with her daughter for an exclusive cover shoot, the model confirmed: “She wasn’t adopted – she’s my child.”
Naomi played coy during the new interview and refused to elaborate further on her firstborn, despite confirming her daughter is not adopted.
However, she admitted that very few of her large circle of friends and family members knew that she was planning to become a parent.
She explained, “I can count on one hand the number of people who knew I had her. But she is the greatest blessing I can imagine. It’s the best thing I’ve ever done.”
The supermodel – who is believed to be single – surprised her Instagram followers when she shared a picture with her newborn daughter and declared she had never felt “a greater love”.
Naomi offered a first look at her new arrival with a picture of her baby girl, whose name has not been released, and wrote: “A beautiful little blessing has chosen me to be her mother.
“I am so honored to have this gentle soul in my life that there are no words to describe the lifelong bond I share with you now, my angel. There is no greater love.’
Model mom: Naomi announced in May that she is a mom, four years after she credited science with giving her the opportunity to start a family “whenever she wants”.
