Congratulations are in order for Candice Swanepoel and her fiancé Hermann Nicoli, who welcomed a baby boy into the world! The couple shared a photo of their newborn Saturday morning, and he couldn't be cuter.

This is the first baby for the couple, who revealed that they were expecting back in March. According to E! News, they named their son Anacã, which is "a Brazilian word for a specific kind of bird." Talk about a unique name!

"Life is sweet," Swanepoel captioned the black and white photo (see below). of her infant baby boy, who looks especially cozy in a striped onesie and nestled in a bed of pillows.

Jerome Duran, photographer and friend of Swanepoel, revealed the news on Instagram with a photo of Swanepoel's naked, pregnant body along with the caption, ""THE MOST BEAUTIFUL MAMA Congratulations!! @angelcandices @hermannicoli Welcome Anacã!!! Already sooo much LOVE for you and the new family!" You can see the image below.

Sources revealed to E! News back in March that the couple was "very happy" and that Swanepoel was "so excited" about becoming a mother. Apparently Swanepoel and her close friend and fellow Victoria's Secret model/new mom Behati Prinsloo will be leaning on each other a lot throughout their new motherhood, after relying on each other through their pregnancies.

"Candice and Behati are best friends and they are not far apart from each other in pregnancy due dates," the source said. "They both have been experiencing the first stages of being pregnant together and are happy to have each other who understand. They can't wait to be mommies!"

Swanepoel and Nicoli announced their engagement in August 2015, after having dated for 10 years. They met in Paris when Swanepoel was 17 years old, according to E! News.
