Naomi has been extremely private about her daughter and didn’t reveal she was expecting until she announced her arrival in an Instagram post.
In an interview with British Vogue, Naomi insisted her daughter wasn’t adopted while revealing her face for the first time.
The model surprised fans by announcing the birth of her daughter in May, just weeks after appearing on the New York Fashion Week catwalk without a visible bump.
But she says the child – whose biological father has never been named – is hers amid growing speculation over her biological parentage.

Speaking to the latest edition of British Vogue while posing with her daughter for an exclusive cover shoot, the model confirmed, “She’s not adopted, she’s my child.”
Naomi played coy during the new interview and, despite confirming her daughter was not adopted, declined to elaborate on her firstborn.
However, she admitted that very few of her wide circle of friends and family knew she was planning to become a parent.
She explained, “I can count on one hand the number of people who knew I had it. But she is the greatest blessing I can imagine. It’s the best thing I’ve ever done.
The model – who is believed to be single – surprised her Instagram followers when she shared a photo cradling her newborn daughter and said she had never felt “greater love”.
Giving a first glimpse of her new arrival with a photo of her baby girl, whose name has not been revealed, Naomi wrote: ‘A beautiful little blessing has chosen me to be her mother.
‘So honored to have this sweet soul in my life, there are no words to describe the lifelong bond I now share with you my angel. There is no greater love.
