With her glamorous, jet-set lifestyle, Naomi Campbell
may seem like a woman who has it all. But the former supermodel says something is missing from her life.
"I do want to have kids," the 38-year-old said during a London Fashion Week fund-raiser for the White Ribbon Alliance (which helps provide healthcare for pregnant women around the world).
In fact, the model revealed that she was previously infertile – until a corrective surgery this March. (Until now, Campbell had maintained that she checked into a hospital in Brazil
for the removal of a small cyst.)
"They thought it was a cyst," she explained, according to Britain's Press Association. "When they opened it up they realized it was more."
Thanks to the operation, Campbell said she's now in perfect health.
"I was not able to have children up until March," she said. "Now it's in God's hands. I would love to have a family."
