On the heels of Naomi Campbell recently becoming a mother of two, Kimora Lee Simmons is dishing on how the iconic supermodel is adjusting.
Kimora Lee Simmons Says She’s “Proud” Of Naomi
Over the weekend, PEOPLE reported that Kimora accepted the first-ever Jacqueline Avant Humanitarian Award on behalf of Naomi at the DesignCare gala.
While chatting with the outlet, mother-of-five Kimora Lee Simmons noted that Naomi Campbell is “overwhelmed” but “in such great spirits.”
“Like any new mom, we’re always overwhelmed, and I did talk to her briefly and she sounded in such great spirits.”
She proclaimed, “I love her so much, and I’m so proud of her. Now she has [a 2-year-old] and a little bitty newborn. That’s always a crazy time for any mom, but especially [with] a newborn.”
Naomi Campbell Happily Shows It’s “Never Too Late To Become A Mother”
Naomi Campbell first became a mother in mid-2021 and started her family using a surrogate.
Just before commemorating her 51st birthday, Naomi announced, “A beautiful little blessing has chosen me to be her mother.” She went on to say she was “so honoured to have this gentle soul in [her] life” before stating, “There is no greater love.”
Later, Campbell spoke on the significance of this move during a sit-down with British Vogue.
“I always knew that one day I would be a mother, but it’s the biggest joy I could ever imagine. I’m lucky to have her and I know that.”
Naomi, who celebrated her 53rd birthday less than two months ago, later revealed that she had also welcomed a baby boy via surrogacy. Specifically, she shared the news via Instagram in late June, as The Shade Room reported.
Naomi Campbell revealed the exciting development by uploading a photo of her cradling her bundle of joy. While the child’s face wasn’t shown, fans could see Naomi and her daughter—also hidden from the camera—gently holding the newborn’s hand.
Within her caption, the model noted that her son—a “True Gift from God”—is “cherished beyond measure.”
Naomi happily told viewers, “It’s never too late to become a mother.”
