Wait — some pregnant women don't reveal the gender of their baby with topless, monochrome photos shared with their 8.8 million Instagram followers? Pshhh.
Okay, so Candice Swanepoel isn't your typical mom-to-be. But we aren't faulting her for that. After all, the 27-year-old South African supermodel does have at least one thing in common with other expectant women: serious motherly love.
"My not so little boy," Swanepoel, who's often recognized for her work with Victoria's Secret, lovingly captioned the stunning photo. She added a baby and heart emoji for emphasis.
No gender reveal party. No blue or pink frosting to stress over. If there was any "stress" involved here at all, it likely had to do with her tousled blonde hair not cascading across her symmetrical face just so.
Still, it's clear that the photo is grounded in love, joy and excitement — and those are things to which we can all relate.
Swanepoel announced her pregnancy back in March. Her fiancé and the father of her child is Brazilian model Hermann Nicoli. Now that we know its gender, we're curious about just one more thing: Will this baby boy inherit his parents' drop-dead good looks?!
Only time (and Instagram) will tell.
