Naomi Campbell is everywhere at the moment, thanks to her appearance in the upcoming Apple TV+ documentary The Super Models alongside fellow fashion legends Cindy Crawford, Linda Evangelista, and Christy Turlington, which premieres on September 20.

In a new interview with the Today Show, the English supermodel, 53, spoke about her life on the go as one of the world's most successful runway divas and also her private life.

She and host Sheinelle Jones also got candid about motherhood, with Naomi gushing openly about life as a mom to two children, a two-year-old daughter and a nine-week-old son.

"What is it like?" Sheinelle asked, to which Naomi responded: "A lot of fun. I love it, it's a lot of fun. Each day is a surprise, you don't know what's going to happen, I don't know what my daughter's going to say."

In May 2021, the legendary super took the world by surprise when she announced the birth of her daughter, whose name has not yet been revealed. She prefers keeping her toddler out of the public eye.

She recounted to the NBC News anchor a specific incident involving her daughter and her bathroom habits, recalling that each time she'd have to go, she would look to her mom and say: "Mummy, privacy."

The anecdote left Sheinelle in hysterics, and Naomi remembered reacting with an incredulous "Huh?" She continued: "I'd say 'Not to your momma, you can do with everybody else'. Don't know where she got it from, really, really don't."

She further elaborated on the joys of being a working mom who can share her worldly experiences with her children.

"I love this job that has given me the opportunity to travel and see different parts of the world, meet different people and cultures," she said. "If I have this opportunity to share that with my kids, to travel, I will do so. I'm really blessed."

The reigning queen of the catwalk told British Vogue a year after introducing her daughter: "I'm lucky my little one loves to travel like me – no whimpering taking off or landing."

Naomi also clarified that her baby was all hers, simply saying: "She wasn't adopted – she's my child," refusing to reveal further details.
