Hermann-Nicoli-Candice-Swanepoel

Candice Swanepoel has welcomed her first child.

The 27-year-old Victoria's Secret model has given birth to a baby boy named Anacã, with fiancé Hermann Nicoli.  The couple got engaged in August 2015 after nearly 10 years of dating.

In May, the model revealed via Instagram that she was expecting a baby boy.

"My Not so little boy," she captioned an Instagram pic of herself cradling her bump in a blue dress.

Her friend, photographer Jerome Duran, was first to break the news when he shared a shot of the model showing off her huge belly while posing naked.


"THE MOST BEAUTIFUL MAMA Congratulations!! @angelcandices @hermannicoli Welcome Anacã!!! Already sooo much LOVE for you and the new family!" he wrote next to it.

After the news broke, Candice's good friend and fellow Victoria’s Secret Angel Lily Aldridge took to social media to congratulate her and Behati Prinsloo.  "Words can not express how much I love these mamas!!! Congrats."

Prinsloo welcomed her first kid, a daughter named Dusty Rose, with Adam Levine in late September.
