Less than a month ago, on November 20th, blonde bombshell Candice Swanepoel walked the runway for the annual Victoria’s Secret Fashion show that took place in Shanghai, China.
This was her return to the stage after missing the show last year when she was heavily pregnant with her first child, a son, Anaca.
Well, it looks like Anaca will be a big brother soon as Swanepoel announced via Instagram that she’s expecting baby number 2! Little did the public know, but she was walking the runway in gorgeous lingerie less than four weeks ago already expecting just not visibly showing!
Swanepoel is engaged to longtime boyfriend, Hermann Nicoli who she’s been dating since 2005.
After the recent retirement of veteran angel Alessandra Ambrosio, who walked her last Victoria’s Secret fashion show this year, Adriana Lima remains the model who has walked the show the most. A grand total of 18 times. Supermodels such as Tyra Banks and Heidi Klum were the top models of their day that claimed the most attention and adoration of Victoria’s Secret angels.
Swanepoel is definitely one of the most recognizable and experienced now that Ambrosio has left and Lima claims she’ll only stay for another year or two.
Once news of her pregnancy broke, her fans were both elated and impressed that she was at least two months pregnant while strutting her stuff on the runway last month. No one was the wiser as there wasn’t even a peep that the model may be pregnant.
Pregnant women continue to work in whatever their line of business is all the time. Serena Williams won the Australian Open while she was six weeks pregnant with daughter Alexis Olympia. Beyonce was four weeks pregnant with twins, Sir and Rumi when she performed at a benefit honoring and campaigning for presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. It’s not uncommon at all.
Swanepoel’s kids will be about two years apart, and like both Ambrosio and Lima who had children and continued to walk runways work soon after they gave birth, modeling isn’t going anywhere for this South African stunner. Congrats to the beauty on her bun in the oven!
