Candice Swanepoel shares first pic of newborn son
The South African model couldn't wait to share her happiness with the world.

The South African model gave birth to her son on Friday September 7, 2016. What did they name him? Anacã (pronounced, A-na-ka).

Swanepoel could not wait any longer to share her little bundle of joy with the world and she and fiancé Hermann Nicoli shared the first snap of him on Saturday morning.

The caption says it all: "Life is sweet".
