Acording to E! News, the duo became engaged earlier this month.

“She couldn’t be happier,” a source told the outlet.

It is not known exactly when or how Hermann proposed, but it is believed to have happened very recently as Candice was seen without an engagement ring as she stepped out in New York last week.

Candice met Hermann in Paris, France, when she was just 17 years old.

The supermodel and her beau have always done their utmost to keep their romance as private as possible.

However, Candice did speak recently about how she copes with being in a long-distance relationship.

“[Being apart is] what keeps it going,” she told E! Online. “No, seriously, it's important to travel and be apart and miss each other.

“In the beginning it was long-distance and when you long for something so much, I think it's a good thing.”

The pair even spent Valentine’s Day apart last year. But Candice found a way to put a positive spin on her boyfriend’s absence.

“You don’t have to have your loved one with you,” she said. “You can go out with the girls, have a good time. It’s also a good excuse if you have a crush on somebody to use that as the day to let them know.”
