The sweet image Campbell shared was of her baby girl’s feet resting in her hand. Her friends and fellow fashion insiders shared their congratulations in the comments section. “Oh my God!!!!! Today is the day?? How absolutely incredible,” designer Marc Jacobs wrote. “How lucky she is and how lucky you are! What a wonderful Mother you will be. Blessings all around.” Model Adut Akech, one of Campbell’s many mentees in the modeling world, wrote, “OMG CONGRATULATIONS MAMA!!! I’m so happy for you!!!️️️️”

Campbell never publicly announced a pregnancy, so it’s possible she either adopted her child or used a surrogate. She had told the Evening Standard in 2017, “I think about having children all the time…. But now with the way science is, I think I can do it when I want.”
