Victoria’s Secret model Candice Swanepoel has shared the first picture of her new baby son – and it seems that striking a pose is genetic!
The 27-year-old made an official birth announcement on her Instagram page with a black and white image of her darling bub, along with the caption: “Life is sweet. Anacan (Anacã) 5th-October-2016.”

Anacã is the first child of Candice and her fiancé Hermann Nicoli. The couple, who have been together for over 10 years, named their son after a Brazilian word for a type of bird.
