South African born Swanepoel, 26, posted a video to Instagram of her and Nicoli taking a twirl on the grass, him shirtless and her in a crop-top, flowing skirt — and rocking a huge engagement ring, of course. She captioned the black-and-white moment, "meu eterno namorado," which according to People roughly translates to "my boyfriend forever" in Nicoli's native Portuguese.
According to E! News, Swanepoel and Nicoli have dated for nearly 10 years — long enough for Swanepoel to learn Portuguese from Brazilian-born Nicoli. The pair met when then-17-year-old Swanepoel was traveling and modeling in Paris. With their busy schedules, the couple often finds themselves apart. They were even separated this Valentine's Day!
The two models mostly keep their relationship under wraps, but Swanepoel recently opened up about what it's like to be in a long-distance relationship. "You don't have to have your loved one with you," Swanepoel told E! News. "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."
Of her engagement, a source told E! News, "She couldn't be happier." And by looking at that video, we think that's quite obvious!
