Campbell has always expressed an open desire to have children. In a 2018 interview with Vogue Arabia, Campbell said, “I’d love to have kids. I don’t discount anything in my life.” She furthered her desire, “I love kids and always will. When I’m around children, I become a child myself. That’s the little girl I don’t ever want to lose.”
The supermodel and actress welcomed her first child without any indication or acknowledgment to the public or on social media.
