Victoria’s Secret Angel Candice Swanepoel Welcomes Baby Boy No. 2
Victoria's Secret Angel Candice Swanepoel welcomes her second child with fiancé Hermann Nicoli. The model posted a picture of her baby on Instagram.
Counting Their Blessings
Swanepoel gave birth to her second son in Brazil earlier this week. She gave fans a little glimpse at her new baby via her Instagram Stories, posting a shot of the little guy's tiny hand with "blessed" written across it.
"Thank you so much for all the well wishes. Our little man was born this morning at home and he couldn't be more perfect," she wrote on Instagram.
At the start of the week, the Victoria's Secret model revealed on social media that their new bundle of joy would be arriving any minute now, and that she couldn't wait to meet him -- and to see her toes again.
"Hoping to meet our newest addition soon!" she captioned the pic, which showed her sizeable bump in all its glory. Swanepoel was comfy in unbuttoned, ripped jeans and a white bra top. Next to hear was 1-year-old son Anaca.
Keeping It Natural Always
The South African model has been spending the past few months in Brazil with her family, all of whom are from there, while waiting for the baby to arrive.
Swanepoel first announced she was expecting in December, again on Instagram with a pic of her holding her bump, and a cheeky caption about Christmas arriving early.
The announcement came just a matter of weeks after she joined the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show in Shanghai. Fans were shocked to learn the supermodel was pregnant while strutting down the runway in revealing lingerie.
She has been sharing intimate looks at her growing bump with fans online, as well as her pretty maternity style, even proudly posing naked. Swanepoel confirmed the baby's gender by posting a video of Anaca, who was born in October 2016, kissing her belly with the caption "my boys."
The Victoria's Secret angel told PEOPLE that she believes more women should deliver babies naturally. Swanepoel is a big proponent of natural births.
"I think society has made women afraid of giving [birth naturally], but it's totally doable if you prepare yourself in the right way. I was actually surprised how quickly the body can go back. We're amazing creatures," she explained, referencing her impressive post-baby figure last time around.
Swanepoel's other baby, her sustainable swimwear line Tropic of C., launched in February. The 14-piece collection includes minimalist one-pieces and retro-inspired bikinis, in keeping with the model's personal style.
