She's halfway there! Candice Swanepoel has shared a striking photo of her growing baby bump to mark the midpoint of her pregnancy.

The catwalk star took to the woods in upstate New York City to take part in an ethereal photoshoot.

Posing against a tree-lined backdrop Candice, 27, wore a flowing maxi skirt and off-the-shoulder cropped top that revealed her very large bump. She completed her boho-chic maternity look by parting her hair in loose waves.

"The magical business of making a new life," Candice captioned the artsy shot.

The Victoria's Secret Angel recently revealed the sex of her baby on Instagram, by posting a topless photo of herself standing side-on. "My not so little boy," she wrote.

As the weeks have passed Candice has shared snaps of her blossoming bump. On Mother's Day the South African supermodel, who is engaged to her partner of ten years Hermann Nicoli, shared a gorgeous picture of herself cradling her unborn baby.

This will be the first child for Candice and her fiancé Hermann Nicoli

She gave a special shout out to her fellow mum-to-be Behati Prinsloo, who is also expecting her first child. "Happy Mother's Day to all the amazing mothers in my life and happy almost mama's day to us @behatiprinsloo so much love already," Candice wrote.

The starry-eyed model announced her pregnancy in March, roughly six months after she got engaged. She's been in good company, comparing pregnancy anecdotes with her fellow Victoria's Secret model Behati.

"Candice and Behati are best friends and they are not far apart from each other in pregnancy due dates," a source told E! News. "They both have been experiencing the first stages of being pregnant together and are happy to have each other who understand. They can't wait to be mummies!"

The couple got engaged last summer

Candice and her fiancé Hermann, also a model, first met in Paris when Candice was 17.

"We've grown together over the years," she told E! News. "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."
