Naomi cradled her baby daughter's feet in her hands in the snap, while the tiny babe appeared to be wearing an adorable white silk dress embroidered with dainty little flowers.

Prior to the announcement, Naomi had not made it public knowledge that she was expecting a baby, and being a very private person, as of this moment, she has not shared whether or not she is currently in a relationship, or who the baby's father is.

Although the news came as a bit of a surprise to the general public, it seems that people close to the supermodel were privy to the information.

Marc Jacobs, the famous fashion designer and long term friend to the model, although surprised about the day, didn't seem too surprised about the baby news, he wrote in response to the announcement:

"Oh my God!!!!! Today is the day?? How absolutely incredible. How lucky she is and how lucky you are! What a wonderful Mother you will be. Blessings all around. ❤️❤️❤️"
