Candice Swanepoel shares name of her newborn son


Candice Swanepoel has shared the name of her newborn baby with her fans.

The Victoria’s Secret Angel and her fiance Hermann Nicoli announced the birth of their second child, a son, earlier this month (Jun18).

A week after welcoming her baby, a sibling for her 20-month-old son Anacan, Candice took to Instagram on Sunday evening (24Jun18) to post a photo of her two children and revealed that she had chosen the name of Ariel for her youngest.

“These are the most precious gifts life has given me,” the 29-year-old wrote beside the black and white photo which showed Anacan kissing his brother’s forehead. “I am a lucky woman to be their mommy, to help guide them through this thing called life…….. Now they will always have each other Anacan & Ariel.”

The South African star first confirmed Ariel’s birth via an Instagram story, and subsequently took to the social media platform to respond to all the messages she’d received from fans since welcoming him.

“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 infant.
