"That's My Roots"

Naomi Campbell played Bob Marley’s song during the birth of her daughter. The supermodel shared the exciting detail during a recent episode of her show, No Filter With Naomi.

“In one of my most special moments, you know, I just became a mum, I had Bob Marley playing,” Naomi shared during her interview with guest DJ D-Nice. “I mean, that’s my roots,” Campbell exclaimed. “You know, that’s my roots.”


Naomi Campbell is a British model who was born in Streatham, London, United Kingdom. The celebrity’s mom, Valerie Morris, was born in Jamaica.

Naomi Campbell became a mother for the first time earlier this month. The celebrity took to Instagram on Mother’s Day weekend to celebrate the life change.

“A beautiful little blessing has chosen me to be her mother,” Campbell shared. “So honoured to have this gentle soul in my life,” the model added. “There are no words to describe the lifelong bond that I now share with you, my angel. There is no greater love.”

Some were surprised that Naomi decided to venture down the path of parenthood at 50-years-old. An insider, however, reveals the model’s decision to be years in the making.

“She’s wanted a baby for a long time, more than 10 years,” the family friend shares. “Anyone who’s surprised Naomi is having a baby on her own, her own way, and on her own timetable doesn’t know Naomi Campbell,” the insider continues. “Hasn’t she redefined everything she’s ever touched?”

Naomi Campbell made history as the first Black model on the cover of French Vogue when she was 18-years-old. She went on to become the first Black model on the cover of TIME magazine. Naomi revolutionized the modeling industry with her fierce catwalk that continues to be the standard new models attempt to follow.

Naomi Campbell alluded to taking a break from her YouTube series at the end of her episode with DJ D-Nice on Tuesday (May 25). Could the model be thinking of taking time away to stay home with her daughter?
