"There she is!!! Best birthday gift ever!!" wrote Andy Cohen. "She is perfect," added Loren Ridinger, whilst designer Diane von Furstenberg remarked: "Omg God bless her and you."

Whilst Naomi's friends got confused, her fans were quick to set the record straight, with one replying: "She reposts her baby pictures on her birthday. That's Naomi at three months in 1970."

Another clarified: "It's Naomi as a baby, not her daughter."

Naomi shocked the world last Tuesday when she revealed she had secretly welcomed a baby daughter.

The supermodel shared the first photo of her newborn on Instagram, posting a sweet snap of the little one's tiny feet in her hand.

Captioning the heartwarming photo, Naomi wrote: "A beautiful little blessing has chosen me to be her mother.

"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."

The baby's name has yet to be revealed.
