Actresses Zoe Saldana and Jodie Turner-Smith and fashion designer Marc Jacobs were among those to congratulate Campbell in the comments.

"Many many many congratulations to you and your family -- the village that will now rally around you and support you in cultivating that little angel!!!! What an incredible blessing!!!" Turner-Smith added.

"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," Jacobs said.

Campbell did not share other details about the birth. She previously sparked adoption rumors in May 2019 when she posted a photo with a baby on Mother's Day. She denied adopting at the time.

Campbell discussed her desire to have kids in an interview with the Evening Standard in 2017.

"I think about having children all the time," she said. "But now with the way science is, I think I can do it when I want."
