Victoria’s Secret beauty Candice Swanepoel has thanked well wishers for their kind words following the birth of her son.

Candice and fiance Hermann Nicoli, also a model, welcomed their baby boy on Tuesday (19Jun18), with the blonde star announcing the happy news in an Instagram Story post.

She has once again taken to the photo sharing website to thank fans for their messages.

“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 captioned a snap of her cradling the newborn.

The baby joins Candice and Hermann’s son Anaca, who was born in October 2016.

Talking about how motherhood had changed her in a chat with British Vogue last year, the South African beauty explained how she can no longer watch films or commercials where kids are in any kind of danger.

“The last two movies I watched were Lion and Mama, with Penelope Cruz, and I mean, just bawling on the couch,” she confessed. “Oh my god, they are both so beautiful but you just won’t get through it.”

She also touched on co-starring in a Gap campaign with Anaca.

“I think once you become a mum, it shifts, and you see everybody differently,” the 29-year-old said. “It was definitely a different dynamic on set to what I’m used to! He’s actually so good and I think we’ve taken so many pictures of him since he was born that he’s actually quite used to the camera. It was a definite shift because I was thinking about him instead of myself.”

Candice decided to share an intimate glimpse into her ongoing pregnancy with fans, and bared all for a revealing snap which she posted on Instagram on Tuesday (10Apr18).

“Body blossoming,” she wrote in the image’s caption, where she can be seen covering her breasts with one arm while touching her stomach with the other. “the path between spiritual and the physical …aren’t women amazing?!”

The South African star also added the hashtag “#6months,” which means her baby boy is due to arrive this July.

She previously used Instagram to announce her exciting news, with the stunning blonde sharing a maternity shoot picture alongside the caption, “Christmas came early!” in December. Candice subsequently shared her unborn child’s gender via social media, where she uploaded a sweet video of her eldest kissing her burgeoning bump, writing, “My boys”, alongside emojis of blue hearts and two boys.

Despite her growing family, Candice remains one of the most successful models in the industry, with recent campaigns for Victoria’s Secret and Gap under her belt.

In a previous interview, the 29-year-old credited becoming a mother for giving her a new outlook on life.

“It’s all so new to me and I think, especially in the beginning, that everything is such a joy; you’re excited about every moment,” she gushed to Vogue.co.uk. “Becoming a mother makes the world feel so much better. Nothing can get me down. I just look at (Anaca) and see him seeing the world for the first time, and it’s just such a pleasure to see it through his eyes.”
