We just saw Candice Swanepoel open Victoria’s Secret fashion show in Shanghai, China so it was a total shock when the supermodel announced on Friday that she was expecting baby number two. The South African beauty returned back to the catwalk with a vengeance after sitting last year’s show out. She had recently given birth to her first child, son Anaca.
Before the show in China, Candice, 29, told the press where she was last year when tuned in to watch since she sadly had to sit the show out “I watched the show from my couch in Brazil which was a very different experience. I definitely missed it, so of course, I’m excited to be back.”
Swanepoel took to Instagram to deliver the good news to her fans, in the picture she is wearing an off the shoulder green dress, her hair was down with her head tilted back while she held her pregnant belly. In the post, she said, “Christmas came early…..#2.”
Earlier in the day, she was spotted on the beaches of Brazil with her long time Brazilian darling Hermann Nicoli, 35, and a friend. Hermann who is also a model met Candice in Paris when she was just 17 years old they have been a couple ever since.
They welcomed their first child Anaca in October of 2016 and have been engaged since August 2015.
Candice seemed carefree as she frolicked in the ocean. She wore a leopard print string bikini that showed off her slight frame. What appeared to be a fuller stomach perhaps because of eating a heavier lunch was shortly after revealed she was expecting.
The model had also spoken about her first round of pregnancy and how she feels about natural childbirth, the birth plan she chose when she gave birth to her son. “I think society has made women afraid of giving (birth naturally), but it’s totally doable if you prepare yourself the right way.”
This supermodel makes walking down the catwalk, juggling a career, being a mom, staying in top shape and being pregnant look effortless. Congrats Supermama!
