Naomi Campbell had an ovarian tumour removed in Brazil to save her fertility.
The 38-year-old British supermodel has revealed US doctors failed to diagnose the condition forcing her to head to South America for treatment.
Naomi - who previously claimed she went to Brazil for surgery to remove a cyst from her stomach - said: "In America they missed my symptoms. I was in pain for months. So I went to Brazil where they have wonderful doctors.
"They discovered an ovarian tumour that had burst and caused infection. They operated and now I can have children, God willing."
Naomi can't wait to become a mother, but is not sure if her new Russian billionaire boyfriend Vladimir Doronin shares her desire.
She added: "He's really wonderful. But I'm not pressing him about having a family, but it is something I definitely want.
"I think I will be a very strict mother. But at the same time understand that I am very childlike myself."
The model recently attended the Fashion For Relief event in aid of the motherhood charity The White Ribbon Alliance.
