'My little man!' Candice Swanepoel's fiance Hermann Nicoli bonds with their sleeping newborn Anacan
Clutching his father's finger as he sleeps, little Anacan couldn't look more content.
The newborn son of Victoria's Secret model Candice Swanepoel lay in his bassinet for a black and white photo with the model's fiance Hermann Nicoli.
'My little man,' wrote proud Hermann, as the Brazilian model posted the snap on Instagram.

While her beau posted the same snap with the caption: 'Meet our little Angel, Anacã. Much love for our baby boy and you, Mommy'.
Public congratulations soon appeared from the couple's famous friends, including the photographer Jerome Duran, who posted a pregnant nude he had taken of her.
His caption exalted the Victoria's Secret Angel as 'THE MOST BEAUTIFUL MAMA' and effervesced: 'Welcome Anacã!!! Already sooo much LOVE for you and the new family!'

The photo saw the Mooi River native giving the camera her best smouldering stare. Her blonde hair cascaded over one breast, and a sparkle of light concealed the other nipple.
Candice and 34-year-old Hermann publicised their engagement last August. Her paramour and fellow model is from Brazil, where the pair are now principally based. By March, she had announced her pregnancy.
A sweet Instagram post showed her hand holding Nicoli's to her stomach. Her caption read: 'Agora e #barrigapositiva ! #babyangel,' which in Portuguese roughly means: 'Here's #bigbelly! #babyangel'.
In August, at a safari-themed baby shower thrown for her in Brazil, she revealed that she'd alighted on the name Anacã, a Brazilian word for a bird.
