Congratulations! Victoria's Secret Angel Candice Swanepoel revealed yesterday that she is pregnant with her second child. 


The 29-year-old model announced she's expecting via Instagram, sharing an absolutely dreamy photo of her holding her belly in front of palm fronds.


The expecting mum captioned the picture with emojis of a pregnant woman and a baby angel, saying, "Christmas came early,"

She and her Brazilian model fiance, Hermann Nicoli, welcomed their first bundle of joy into the world in March 2016.


They named their son Anacã, which means 'bird' or 'red parrot' in Portuguese. The mum is trilingual, as she is fluent in Afrikaans (she's South African), English, and now Portuguese thanks to her husband-to-be.


We wonder what unique name they have in store for their second baby!

A number of the supermodel's 11.6M Insta followers showered her with congratulations.


"Most amazing gift ever," one fan commented, "Congratulations!"


Another said, "Congratulations, queen!"


"How did she do the show without showing?!" one person marvelled, referencing the fact that Candice looked fabulous walking the runway at the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show in November.


Congrats to Candice and Hermann on their fantastic news!
