Naomi Campbell shared some rare comments about her role as a mother of two.

The supermodel, 54, confirmed in a recent interview with The Sunday Times that both of her children were welcomed via surrogate. “I did,” she told the outlet when asked whether she had help expanding her family.

Though she did not disclose the names of her daughter and son, who she welcomed in 2021 and 2023, respectively, Campbell gushed about her two small children. “My babies are everything to me. It’s made me fear for the future,” she stated. “I hope for a better world for my children. They are 110 percent my priority. I have to be there for them on their first day at school.”

While Campbell couldn’t be happier as a “single mother,” she told the outlet she worries about “young girls” who aren’t interested in having kids because of expenses. “I have said, ‘You will change your mind. You will want to be a mum,’” she said. “I understand, economically, it is tough. But my mum had nothing and she made it work. It’s worth it. It is so amazing.”

Campbell has largely kept her family private since becoming a first-time mom at age 50 in 2021. She announced in May of that year that she secretly welcomed a baby girl. “A beautiful little blessing has chosen me to be her mother,” she captioned an Instagram pic of her hands holding her then-newborn’s feet. “So honored 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.”
