Hermann Nicoli’s relationship with Candice Swanepoel: When did they first meet?

Let’s start their love story from the beginning!

In the meantime, the two were struggling with their rising modeling career. The first few years of their love were full of ups and downs but the duo handled everything with ease.

They led a delightful relationship for several years. But, due to the busy schedule, sometimes the two had to go through the miseries of a long-distance relationship.

During the 2014 Valentine’s Day, the model told E! News this Valentine became totally empty as her boyfriend wasn’t with her for celebrating the day. She said,

“I’m gonna be a lonely girl on Valentine’s Day this year.”

But, Candice was cool with that.

Hermann Nicoli’s Engagement With Candice: Did The Couple Ever Get Married?

The Brazilian model proposed to his girlfriend in August 2015. E! News was the first to share the huge news. They engaged after around ten years of romance.

In mid-August 2015, Swanepoel posted a video of dancing with her longtime beau on Insta and also showed her sparkling engagement ring in the clip. She wrote,

“Meu eterno namorado,” which means “My boyfriend forever” in Nicoli’s native Portuguese. While talking to HELLO!’s Fashion Monthly magazine before their engagement, Candice said there is no need to go through the formality of marriage to prove their love. She said,

“I kind of feel married already. 10 years is kind of a marriage, so I don’t really need papers to tell me that.”

The model also credited her beau for supporting her in every hard time, telling her,

“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.”

However, despite their years of love and commitment, they couldn’t convert it into a marriage.

How Many Children Do They Have?

The two shared two kids. Hermann and his fiancee welcomed their first child, a son named Anacan on 5th October 2016. Candice posted the photo of their newly-born baby boy three days after his birth on 8th October on her Instagram.

In December 2017, Swanepoel announced her pregnancy news on her Instagram with a photo of her cradling her baby bump on Instagram. She captioned the image, “Christmas came early…#2.”

How Hermann and Candice’s Longtime Relationship Ended Unanticipatedly?

The couple separated in late 2018. Swanepoel disclosed her single relationship status in an Instagram Stories Q&A with fans in mid-2019. It wasn’t a surprise for her fans as Hermann and Candice already unfollowed each other on their social media a long time ago. They had also been absent from each other’s social media handles for over a year.

But, it is still a mystery why one of the long-lasting couples broke up.
