Now that she is, it’s unlike any joy she could ever imagine. 

The 51-year-old supermodel posed alongside her 9-month-old daughter for the March edition of British Vogue

The British beauty opened up about life as a first-time mother in the cover story, even urging her older friends not to wait. She also discusses becoming a mother figure to Black dancers and models before she had her child and how motherhood is bringing out the kid in her. 

She enjoys living life through her daughter’s eyes. 

“I’m lucky to have her and I know that,” Campbell told the publication.

She takes her daughter, whose name she did not disclose, everywhere with her. Campbell understands there will need to be a bit more structure when the baby starts school in a few years, but for now, she’s enjoying every moment. 

“Everything I do, I do for her – that’s it,” Campbell said. “It’s so completely selfless, isn’t it?” 

Campbell is saving the details of the baby’s arrival for her book. She announced that she was a mother on Instagram last May and only offered that the baby was biological and not adopted. 

“But she is the biggest blessing I could ever imagine. It’s the best thing I’ve ever done,” she said.
