Supermodel, '90s icon, and now mom! Naomi Campbell announced Tuesday via Instagram that she is a first-time mom. "A beautiful little blessing has chosen me to be her mother," Campbell penned, alongside a sweet photo of her cradling her newborn's tiny feet.

She continued: "So honoured 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."

Celebrities from Sophie Turner to Lily Aldridge congratulated the new mother within minutes of the news breaking. Zoe Saldana wrote, "❤️❤️❤️ oh my goodness congrats lady! What a blessing!!!" while Marc Jacobs commented, "Oh my God!!!!! Today is the day?? How absolutely incredible. How lucky she is and how lucky you are! What a wonderful Mother you will be. Blessings all around. ❤️❤️❤️"

The almost 51-year-old (her birthday is May 22) had been asked several times over the years if she was considering motherhood. As People notes, in May 2017 Campbell told Evening Standard that she definitely wanted to have kids, hinting that she would be open to surrogacy and other options. "I think about having children all the time," she said to the outlet. "But now with the way science is I think I can do it when I want."
