Naomi Campbell has one stylish baby!

On Thursday, the new mom, 51, gave fans a rare glimpse at her infant daughter on her Instagram Story. In the sweet photo, the supermodel's first child, whose name has not been revealed, is seen lying down while dressed in a colorful Versace onesie.

"I love you Gianni Versace 🕊 🕊 ❤️ 🕊 🕊," Campbell wrote, paying tribute to the late fashion icon on the 24th anniversary of his death.

The supermodel's post comes almost two months after she surprised fans when she revealed that she welcomed a daughter.

To announce the exciting news, Campbell wrote on Instagram, "A beautiful little blessing has chosen me to be her mother. 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."

Campbell has previously been open about her desire to become a parent, including in 2018 when she told Vogue Arabia about how kids bring out a bubbly side of herself.

"I'd love to have kids. I don't discount anything in life. I love kids and always will," she told the magazine at the time. "When I'm around children, I become a child myself. That's the little girl I don't ever want to lose."

A source recently told PEOPLE that Campbell has had motherhood on her mind for years. "She's wanted a baby for a long time, more than 10 years," the source said. "And anyone who's surprised Naomi is having a baby on her own, her own way, and on her own timetable doesn't know Naomi Campbell. Hasn't she redefined everything she's ever touched?"
