Forget Victoria’s Secret, Candice Swanepoel has a secret of her own she’s been keeping these last few months. The supermodel revealed on Instagram on Friday night that she is pregnant with her second child. “Christmas came early,” she captioned her post.
Yes, that means she walked the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show in Shanghai last month while pregnant. But Swanepoel certainly had everyone fooled, as her fans praised her fit post-baby figure.
The VS Angel welcomed her first child, a son named Anaca in October of 2016, with her fiance, model Hermann Nicoli.
Swanepoel is not the first Angel to hit the Victoria’s Secret runway with child—last year Irina Shayk famously debuted her bump at the show in Paris. Alessandra Ambrosio also walked the lingerie extravaganza while pregnant in years past. The South African beauty skipped last year’s show in Paris which took place just a month after the birth of her son.
This year was Swanepoel’s 10th anniversary show, and she made quite the comeback, opening the Shanghai show.
Aside from walking the runway in her underwear, the Angel was not shy about bearing her midriff prior to her baby announcement.
