Naomi thanked fans for their support following her baby news

The 51-year-old shocked the world earlier this month when she revealed she had secretly welcomed a baby daughter by sharing the first photo of her newborn on Instagram.

The image was 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.

Naomi has yet to reveal her daughter's name

"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, and Naomi has not divulged how she welcomed her daughter, but she may have used a surrogate after previously crediting science with giving her an opportunity to start a family "whenever she wants".
