When ’90s supermodels the likes of Kate Moss, Heidi Klum, and Naomi Campbell dominated the runways and covers of fashion magazines, we weren’t thinking ahead to their days handling diapers and chasing down toddlers. And yet, that’s exactly where many of their paths have taken them, with one model mama after the next announcing they’d welcomed little ones throughout the 2000s. With Campbell’s recent bombshell revelation that she’d added a baby girl to her family at age 50, the Big Six supermodels of the ’90s have all become parents in this next chapter of their lives: Cindy Crawford, Christy Turlington, Linda Evangelista, and Claudia Schiffer have all welcomed their own mini-me’s too.
While just about all of these children have inherited their mom’s striking good looks, some of their offspring are already taking on the family business of modeling, with Crawford’s kids Kaia Gerber and Presley Gerber, Helena Christensen’s son Mingus Lucien Reedus, Kate Moss’ daughter Lila Grace Moss, Heidi Klum’s daughter Leni Klum, and more next-gen catwalk pros breaking out on their own already as teens.
Looking back at photos of these supermodels in their ’90s heyday, it’s remarkable just how much they look like their teenage and young adult kids today — and we’re sure they’re just as baffled as we are about where the time went. Somehow, all these supermodels now have little ones who call them “mom.” Read on to see their runway photos and details on their families now.
