“You Will Change Your Mind”: Naomi Campbell Worries About Youngsters Not Wanting Kids

Naomi Campbell said she believes young girls who say they do not want to be a mum will eventually change their minds because motherhood is “so amazing.”

The 54-year-old supermodel gushed about being a parent to her two children as she spoke about surrogacy for the first time, according to People.

When asked whether she sought the involvement of a surrogate for her two children, the runway queen told The Times: “I did.”

Highlights
  • Naomi Campbell believes young girls, who say they don't want to be mums, will eventually change their minds due to the joys of motherhood
  • The 54-year-old supermodel became a mother via surrogacy, welcoming a daughter in 2021 and a son in 2023
  • She stated that her children are “110 percent [her] priority” and are "everything" to her

The self-titled “single mother” welcomed her daughter in 2021 and her son in June 2023, but she has not revealed their names yet.

“My babies are everything to me. It’s made me fear for the future,” she told the outlet. “I hope for a better world for my children. They are 110 percent my priority. I have to be there for them on their first day at school.”

The English model also spoke about how many young girls today say that they do not want children.

“I have heard a lot of young girls saying that it is too expensive to have children and they may not want them, and I have said, ‘You will change your mind. You will want to be a mum,'” she said. “I understand economically it is tough. But my mum had nothing and she made it work. It’s worth it. It is so amazing.”

“We have to depend on the younger generation to change this world. I trust my children more than us to do the right thing,” she added.

Often hailed as a supermodel icon, Naomi began her illustrious career when she was young and was on the cover of Elle by the age of 15. But when it comes to her own children, she said: “I’m not sure I would let her start working at 15. It’s a ruthless world.”

“You will want to be a mum,” she has said in the past to young girls who say they don’t want to have children

Years before she became a mother, the modeling superstar said she loved children and always will.

“I’d love to have kids. I don’t discount anything in life. I love kids and always will,” she told Vogue Arabia in 2018. “When I’m around children, I become a child myself. That’s the little girl I don’t ever want to lose.”

I don't give a flying c**p about the opinion of some random f* I don't know and dont care about. You want to be a mom, then be one. I don't want to be a mom? Then I won't be one. F* off.

I'm almost at menopause and...nope, having kids sounds like a nightmare to me. Try again, Naomi.

It is so incredibly offensive and toxic when someone tries to force their beliefs on to others, especially regarding things such as children, pregnancy, and childbirth. It's not acceptable when males make reproductive decisions for those of us who have uteruses, but it is ALSO not acceptable for other people with uteruses to make those reproductive decisions for others. It's also disgusting that a supermodel is trying to influence young girls - who are VERY impressionable - rather than telling them to know themselves and be true to what THEY want. Also, it's sure easy for her to spout off about having children - she's incredibly rich and did not even have to go through physical pregnancy to have two children. I also feel a little bad for her children - they will just be entering their 20s as their mom heads into her 70s. At least, hopefully, she'll have enough money for any care she needs rather than forcing her young-adult children to spend their lives taking care of her.
