Just than a month after she made her way down the Victoria’s Secret runway, model Candice Swanepoel has revealed she was hiding some very exciting news.

The 29-year-old has just announced that she’s expecting baby number two and she couldn’t seem more happy.

“Christmas came early.. #2” Candice wrote on Instagram alongside a serene photo of herself cradling her bump.

The South African born model is already a mother to 14-month-old son Anacã with fiance Hermann Nicoli, and was quietly expecting while she took on the world’s most famous lingerie runway in late November

The announcement has left some of her fans in shock, but congratulations and well-wishes are flowing in thick and fast.

“WTF HOWWWW,” one person said, while another wrote, “I’m so confused cause didn’t she walk in the fashion show like less than a month ago??? #shook”

Candice joined fellow beauties Bella Hadid, Alessandra Ambrosio and Adriana Lima in Shanghai for the show, and while the runway went seamlessly enough, the trip didn’t.

Star model Gigi Hadid and singer Katy Perry were both unable to enter the country, supposedly because of posting an insensitive video on her Instagram page in Gigi’s case, and for supporting Taiwan’s independency in Katy’s.

Staff also reported being worried that their emails were being watched, making for a rather edgy mood.
