Anacan Nicoli is the firstborn of Candice Swanepoel and Hermann Nicoli. His name is written as Anacã in Portuguese and is inspired by a bird that lives in the Amazon. So, the boy’s name is actually a nod to his dad’s Brazilian ancestry. However, his parents decided to add letter N in English to avoid any confusion.
Candice revealed that she had a natural childbirth without pain medication or an epidural. Moreover, she became a proponent of public breastfeeding and even shared some snaps featuring her feeding Anacan.
Anacan is already a social media star. His mom posted his first photo when he was only 3 days old and since then, he regularly appears on her Instagram. Additionally, Anacan starred in a Gap Kids advertisement alongside his stellar mom.
A curious fact: Swanepoel adores being a mom and tells that motherhood isn’t always easy but it’s the most rewarding and powerful thing she has ever experienced.
