It's a boy for the Victoria's Secret model and her fiancé Hermann Nicoli. Swanepoel's photographer friend Jerome Duran spilled the beans on Instagram Friday, posting a picture taken during the first-time mom's pregnancy and welcoming her son Anacã to the world.

The following day, 27-year-old Swanepoel shared a sweet black and white photo of her newborn on her own Instagram account, revealing that Anacan (Anacã) was born Oct. 5.

According to the Daily Mail, Swanepoel has named her baby boy after a Brazilian word for "bird." It's believed that the model announced the name at her safari-themed baby shower back in August.

The gender of the baby is no surprise, either. Swanepoel shared a stunning Instagram picture in May of her growing baby bump with the caption: "my not so little boy."

Little Anacã isn't the first Victoria's Secret baby to be born in 2016. Swanepoel's fellow angel, Behati Prinsloo, welcomed her first child with singer Adam Levine last month — a baby girl they named Dusty Rose.
