This week mum crush is Victoria’s Secret Angel, Candice Swanepoel. She and her fiancee, Herman Nicoli welcomed their son, Anaca in October 2016.
This South African model began her career in modelling at the age of fifteen when she was scouted by a model recruiter in a Durban flea market. Soon after, her modelling career took off and she has been appearing in editorials like Vogue, Elle, GQ and Bazaar. She also walked the runways for luxury brands Fendi, Chanel and Christian Dior.
In 2010, she became a Victoria’s Secret Angel. That same year, she modelled for the Kardashian’s exclusive swimwear line and opened Canada’s first Victoria’s Secret store. In 2013, she was featured as the cover model for Victoria’s Secret Swim Catalogue and was chosen to walk the runway with the $10 million Fantasy Bra. She was ranked number one in Maxim’s ‘Hot 100 List’ in 2014 and ranked number eight in Forbes’ ‘World’s Top-Earning Model’ in 2016.
This VS Angel is actively involved in Mothers2Mothers. This charity aims to achieve an HIV free generation of children and mothers in Africa. She also campaigned alongside Micheal Kors in their Watch Hunger Stop Campaign.
When she isn’t strutting down the runway or shooting for a magazine, she spends all her time with her adorable boy. Such cuteness in a bundle!
Looks at those arms! No flab in sight. This angel works hard at keeping lean.
She even brought her son to the shoot for Gap.
This hot mama is said to be back in the coming up Victoria’s Secret Fashion show! We can’t wait to see her do her thing on the runway.
