Swanepoel's fiancé also shared the same photo with the caption: "Meet our little Angel, Anacã. Much love for our baby boy and you, Mommy."

Photographer Jerome Duran congratulated the new mother as he shared a photo of Swanepoel sporting her baby bump with the caption: "THE MOST BEAUTIFUL MAMA Congratulations!! @angelcandices @hermannicoli Welcome Anacã!!! Already sooo much LOVE for you and the new family."

The Victoria's Secret model had revealed in March that she was pregnant. "They are very happy. She's so excited," a source previously told the E! News.
