Victoria's Secret angel Candice Swanepoel engaged to boyfriend of ten years

Congratulations are in order for Candice Swanepoel. The Victoria's Secret angel is reportedly engaged to her long-term boyfriend Hermann Nicoli, with a source telling E! Online, "she couldn't be happier".

The South African beauty has been in a relationship with Hermann for around ten years after meeting in Paris. The loved-up pair have mostly kept their relationship under wraps, but Candice does give her six million Instagram followers the occasional glimpse at her Brazilian beau.

Candice hinted that she was ready to start a family with Hermann earlier this year, as well as revealing the secret to how they have maintained a strong relationship despite her travelling so much with her modelling work.

"That's [being apart] what keeps it going," she told E!. "No, seriously, it's important to travel and be apart and miss each other."

She added: "In the beginning it was long distance and when you long for something so much, I think it's a good thing. It helps because we've grown together over the years. He's helped me a lot through all the experiences and been a rock in my life.

"It's hard... If I was to meet somebody [now] it'd be hard for them to understand all the things I've gone through and he's been through that from the beginning."

The model has stayed tight-lipped about her engagement

While no further details about Hermann's proposal have been revealed, it is believed to have happened quite recently as Candice wasn't wearing an engagement ring on a recent outing in New York.

The 26-year-old has stayed tight lipped about her engagement on social media, choosing instead to share photos from a trip to Bali and telling fans how "truly blessed" she feels.

Candice is not the only Victoria's Secret model taking their relationship to the next level; her colleague Kate Grigorieva recently married her beau Alexander in her home country of Russia.
