Candice Swanepoel’s Wiki
The new mother became the envy of women everywhere after announcing the arrival of her first son, Anaca Nicoli with fiancé Hermann Nicoli in October. Although she will be missing from the line up at the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show 2016, Swanepoel shared a sweet post on Instagram captioned, “Good luck in Paris beautiful ladies! So sad to be missing this show! No doubt it will be magical. So hard for me to disappoint the people that always root for me, I wish I was there making you all proud. Girls, enjoy the moments together, can’t wait to see the show and can’t wait for 2017!”
Not many people know this, but the exotic five-foot-nine model is actually South African! The blonde-haired, blue-eyed stunner hails from an Afrikaner family of Dutch descent and was raised in Mooi River, South Africa. Born to Willem and Eileen Swanepoel on October 20, 1988, Candice also has a brother named Stephen Swanepoel. Having a multi-cultural upbringing has resulted in Swanepoel being fluent in Afrikaans, Portuguese, and English. Her career kicked off when she was discovered by a scout in a Durban flea market when she was 15. Since then, there has been no looking back for the long-legged beauty who has graced the covers of Vogue, Elle, Harper’s Bazaar, V, W, GQ, Lush, and Allure magazines.
