The 28-year-old supermodel welcomed her little one into the world with her husband Hermann Nicoli in October 2016 and has admitted she was surprised by how well she took to motherhood because she never felt especially maternal when she was younger.

She explained: "Anacã is incredible - I look at him and I can't believe he's mine. As a young girl, I didn't ask to hold other people's babies but I definitely felt nature's call to be a mummy and I'm just loving it. The first few months devoting my time to him has been really important."

And, although she's enjoying spending time with her tot, the blonde bombshell is looking forward to getting back on the catwalk because she's always been an "independent career woman".

She told OK! magazine: "I've always been an independent career woman, so I'm definitely looking forward to getting back to work. I'm going to have a lot of help from family members, so hopefully everything will go well. I can't wait to get back on the runway."

She may have shrunk back to her pre-baby weight but Candice has made it her mission to become "greener and healthier" throughout the year and wants to do all she can to be environment friendly.

The South African model added: "Every year it's important to me to be healthier, more green, I try not to use as much plastic and be better to the planet. So to live a more ethical, healthier, simple life."
