Model Candice Swanepoel is turning heads as she officially makes her return to Victoria’s Secret after giving birth to her first child.
Candice gave birth to her son Anacã eight months ago and made her way back to the lingerie brand this past week. The 28-year-old is seen strutting her stuff in a thong bodysuit as Victoria’s Secret announced “she’s back” on social media. The short video received over 2 million views in seven days as fans flocked to the brand’s Instagram to check out Candice’s post-baby body.
Some commenters said things such as “this is the best news ever,” while others were surprised to see the new mom flaunting her toned figure in racy lingerie just months after having her first baby. Not only that, but fans also stated it’s amazing someone could look as good as Swanepoel— post-pregnancy or not.
“It’s insane that someone can look like this.”
Other Instagram users referred to Candice as the “queen” of Victoria’s Secret and the best model.
“The Queen of VS is back! The best angel, the most beautiful woman in the world!”
It appears plenty of people are glad to see the blonde back in the modeling world as they leave likes and comments on the post. However, Candice has not appeared in any other promotional post on Victoria’s Secret’s Instagram since the company made the initial announcement.
While she may be in the process of making her return to the lingerie world, People magazine reported it’s likely Candice will be walking in the Victoria’s Secret fashion show this year.
“And the model shared the news as well, posting a photo of herself dressed in the brand’s athletic gear with the caption “Getting back into the groove,” meaning it’s safe to say she’ll be back at the brand’s fashion show this year.”
The photo in question features Swanepoel posing in Victoria Sport apparel amid a city backdrop. The mother of one appears toned and fit as she seductively grins at the camera. The site also added Candice is following in other notable VS models’ footsteps as she quickly rebounds back into the spotlight.
“Alessandra Ambrosio, Miranda Kerr, Lily Aldridge and Heidi Klum are just a few of the Victoria’s Secret models — past and present — who have bounced back onto the brand’s billboards, campaigns and of course its iconic catwalk almost immediately after giving birth to their children. And like the true Angel that she is, Candice Swanepoel is following in those famous footsteps…”
In addition to announcing her return to Victoria’s Secret, Swanepoel has been busy sharing photos of her son with her 11.3 million followers. The model’s fans seem to enjoy seeing the glimpses of baby Anacã as one recent photo received almost 1 million likes and tons of compliments.
Some Instagram users complimented Candice on her adorable baby as they pointed out how much he looks like his mother.
“Beautiful child with beautiful mother.”
And this isn’t the first time Swanepoel surprised fans with her amazing post-baby body. Back in January, just three months after giving birth, Candice shocked the world with a bikini photo showing her already flat tummy.
The Victoria’s Secret model wished everyone a happy New Year as she posed with her son on her hip, all while wearing a black bikini. Candice appears to not only be a doting mother in the photo, but also a dedicated model as she appears to have worked on getting back in shape quickly.
Fans took notice of how fast Swanepoel got her figure back after having her first baby and asked for tips on the post.
“You and your baby are so cute @angelcandices and you look amazing. mind sharing tips on how to get back into shape?”
Now, Candice once again proves she has a dedicated fan base as people celebrate her return to Victoria’s Secret.
