Who is Hermann Nicoli?

Hermann Nicoli is a Brazilian fashion model as well as an internet and social media star, who is probably best known for being the ex-spouse of one of the currently most popular models on the globe, a South African beauty, a ‘supermodel’ and a Victoria’s Secret Angel Candice Swanepoel. Described as the social media sensation, his official Instagram account – @her_mann_ is currently being followed by almost 100,000 fans.

Hermann Nicoli Rosa was born under the zodiac sign of Cancer on the 8th July 1982, in Brasilia, the capital of Brazil, and has two sisters, named Sabrina and Gabi.

Being a model, he sports a slim and toned physique with a height of 6ft 1ins (1.85m), weighing around 176lbs (80kgs). Nicoli is a member of the Next Model Management.

Marriage with Candice Swanepoel

Hermann and Candice first met in 2005 in Paris, France. Both were quite new to the modeling world, and in the early stages of their careers, they instantly felt a spark for each other and subsequently began dating – at that time she was 17 years old while he was 23.

Despite all of the challenges that the demanding modeling world had to throw at them, the young couple stood strong, steadily building their relationship while keeping it in quite a deep discretion until 2014, when they publicly disclosed their romantic bond.

After almost 10 years of dating, in August 2015 Hermann popped the question and, after giving her a diamond ring, became engaged to Candice. During the following year, they announced her pregnancy, and on the 5th October 2016 the couple was blessed with their first child, a son they named Anacã, which in Brazilian language stands for a specific species of the red-fan parrot.

They welcomed their second son, named Ariel on the 19th June 2018. However, in 2019 Hermann and Candice parted ways and are no longer engaged.

Candice Swanepoel

Candice Susan Swanepoel was born on the 20th October 1988, in Mooi River, Kwa-Zulu Natal, South Africa, the younger child of Eileen and Willem Swanepoel; she has an older brother Stephen. She is of Afrikaner ancestry, with some Dutch descent as well as Zimbabwean origins through her father’s side.

She went to St. Anne’s Diocesan College, and as a child, she was an avid ballet dancer.

Candice‘s modeling career began at her age of just 15, when in 2003 she caught the eye of a modeling scout while strolling through the city market in Durban. During the course of the next couple of years, young Swanepoel had already appeared on the covers of the international editions of almost every popular fashion and lifestyle magazine, such as “Harper’s Bazaar”, “Allure”, “GQ” as well as “Elle” and “Vogue”.

Candice Swanepoel

Since 2007 she regularly starred in the Victoria’s Secret’s advertising campaigns, while since 2010 she’s been one of the most popular Victoria’s Secret Angels.

In 2010 she was featured in the brand’s Swim Catalog, Candice officially opened the first-ever Victoria’s Secret retail store in Canada, located in West Edmonton Mall. This was followed by a modeling engagement for the Kardashian sisters’ line of swim suits in September 2010, as one of the brand’s cover faces.

To greater prominence Candice Swanepoel came in October 2013, when she was chosen to wear the $8 million-valued ‘Royal Fantasy Bra‘ as well as its $2 million-valued matching belt, with over 4,200 precious stones wrapped in 18 carat gold, featuring a 52-carat ruby as the central gem of this luxurious piece of lingerie, designed by Mouawad

After designing and launching her own signature collection of swimwear and bikinis in 2018, named Tropic of C, Candice was rewarded with the Launch of the Year Award by the Daily Front Row.

1I grew in a farm in South Africa and I was scouted there and they sent me to Europe. It's kind of been blessed, since then it happened all so fast.
2I was a ballet dancer growing up and that's what I was convinced I would be. I was very skinny, braces; so I never thought I would be a model.
3[on her weight loss speculation]: I am healthy and happy. I'm heartened to know how much everyone cares about me, but in this case everything is normal and good.
4[on her favorite fashion designers] My favorite designers are Chloe, D&G, Christian Louboutin and Marc Jacobs. I change my style from day to day, so I have many favorites.
