Candice Swanepoel has given birth to a baby boy.

The 29-year-old model and her fiancé Hermann Nicoli - with whom she already has 20-month-old Anacã - have welcomed a second son into the world, the beauty revealed on Instagram on Tuesday.

Posting a picture of her newborn son holding her finger on her Instagram Story, Candice drew a yellow heart around the image and simply wrote: “Blessed.”

Candice first revealed she would be expanding her brood once more when she took to Instagram in December to upload a photograph of her wearing a green off-the-shoulder dress, which draped over her burgeoning baby bump, and accompanied it with the caption: "Christmas came early.. (sic).”

The beauty then revealed she was expecting a baby boy one month later when she posted a video which showed Anacã giving his mother's burgeoning bump a sweet kiss, and captioned it: "My boys (sic)”

Candice and Hermann’s new arrival comes after Candice admitted that she wants to have a "bunch of kids" but would leave her future in the hands of fate.

She said previously: "I don't plan too much into the future. I believe a lot in destiny and that what happens - you can try to manifest certain things, but I definitely do want to continue having a great career and building my family as well because I'm really loving that. I definitely want to have a bunch of kids.”

And, although Anacã is still very young, it's hardly surprising that she's decided to add to her brood as she has admitted she's enjoying every second of motherhood.

She gushed: "It's such a mixture of feelings. It's amazing though - I'm loving motherhood. I loved my pregnancy too, all the different stages."
