Candice Swanepoel is a new mom!
The Victoria’s Secret angel has welcomed a baby boy, Anacã, with her fiancé Hermann Nicoli. This is the couple’s first child together.
Swanepoel took to Instagram on Saturday to confirm the news. “Life is sweet,” she captioned a black and white photo, revealing her son’s name and date of birth. “Anacan (Anacã) 5th-October-2016.”
Swanepoel’s good friend, photographer Jerome Duran, was the first to congratulate the couple on social media, sharing a stunning pic of the model posing nude during her pregnancy.
“THE MOST BEAUTIFUL MAMA Congratulations!! @angelcandices @hermannicoli Welcome Anacã!!! Already sooo much LOVE for you and the new family! ,” he wrote alongside the snap.
Just a few days earlier, Swanepoel shared a drawing of herself as a mermaid, with a sweet message to her soon-to-be baby boy.
“'And if you were to ask me After all that we’ve been through Still believe in magic Oh yes I do.’ ,” she captioned the image.
The 27-year-old model hasn’t been shy about sharing pics throughout her pregnancy, announcing she was expecting a boy with a topless shot in May.
“My Not so little boy,” she wrote alongside the snapshot.
And just a few months later, the Swanepoel revealed her baby boy’s name during her safari-themed baby shower in August.
Spelled out in decorative letters behind a table of goodies was the name Anacã, which is a type of bird that lives in the Amazon.
While Swanepoel just gave birth to her first child, her good friend, Behati Prinsloo, recently welcomed a baby girl, Dusty Rose, with her husband, Adam Levine.
