Naomi Campbell is juggling motherhood and modeling.

The supermodel, 51, showed off her baby girl, 1, in an Instagram post on Wednesday that featured photos of her 2022 Met Gala look from earlier in the week. The last photo in the carousel revealed that her daughter stayed home and watched her mom walk the red carpet on television from her highchair.

Campbell also thanked Burberry and its Chief Creative Officer Riccardo Tisci in the caption for styling her for this year's Met Gala.

In the photos, Campbell posed against a white backdrop wearing the black floor-length gown, which featured a bejeweled pattern. The 2022 Met Gala theme was "In America: A Lexicon of Fashion" with the dress code of "Gilded Glamour."

Earlier this year, the model celebrated her first Mothering Sunday in the United Kingdom. In March, she shared a photo of herself kissing her daughter's forehead as well as another picture of her mom, Valerie Morris-Campbell, holding the infant.

Campbell revealed she welcomed her daughter in May of last year, showing her 12.5 million followers a picture of her holding the newborn baby's feet in her hands. "A beautiful little blessing has chosen me to be her mother," Campbell wrote at the time. "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."

She opened up about her motherhood experience in September 2021 during her conversation with BBC's HARDtalk's Zeinab Badawi, calling herself "really lucky" to "have a dream child."

"She is wonderful. She's so very independent already. Very smart, alert. Sleeps 12 hours. A good girl," Campbell said of her daughter.

In February, she clarified adoption rumors in her British Vogue cover story.

"She wasn't adopted — she's my child," the model said, noting that she kept the news private for some time. "I can count on one hand the number of people who knew that I was having her. But she is the biggest blessing I could ever imagine. It's the best thing I've ever done."
