Naomi Campbell has revealed she is planning to give up modelling so she can settle down with Russian billionaire Vladislav Doronin
Naomi Campbell is to quit modelling.
The 38-year-old beauty - who is dating Russian billionaire Vladislav Doronin - is ready to retire from the fashion industry so she can start a family, and will only grace the catwalk for charity shows.
She said: "It'll be 25 years next year. In terms of fashion shows, I don't really see myself doing every show everywhere.
"I'm a woman and I'd like to be a mother one day."
The London-born supermodel is currently staying in Moscow with Vladislav, and despite being blissfully happy she admits she is missing her home comforts.
She added to Hello! magazine: "I miss Marks and Spencer - I have to be honest. I just don't like the chocolate as much in America or other places. Britain has the best chocolate."
Naomi and Vladislav - who is nicknamed the 'Donald Trump of Russia' in his home country - began dating last year.
Last August, it was reported the businessman was so smitten with Naomi he splashed out $18.5 million on a penthouse apartment for her in Brazil.
A source said at the time: "Naomi told Vladislav how much she loved Brazil and that she really wanted to settle down there. So he bought her the apartment as a gift. They will use it as their base when they are in Brazil together."
