Candice Swanepoel Reveals Her Baby’s Name at Her Safari-Themed Baby Shower
Candice Swanpoel has been enjoying every second of her first pregnancy. From showing off twinning baby bumps with preggo bestie, Behati Prinsloo, to hilariously using her growing belly as a floatation device, Candice is taking advantage of every magical moment of these precious nine months. That includes an adorable safari-themed baby shower that featured a very special revelation: the baby’s name!
Stuffed lions and giraffes, along with cute creature cupcakes, were decorated specially for her memorable day. Flowers sat next to zebra and tiger lollipops on a table that also held adorable trinkets for the party-goers.

Na reta final da gravidez, Candice Swanepoel (@angelcandices) escolheu o tema Safari, em homenagem ao seu país de origem, a África do Sul, para o chá de bebê de seu primeiro filho, fruto do relacionamento com o modelo brasileiro @hermannicoli. Entre enfeites e docinhos temáticos, eis que o décor do evento revelou o nome escolhido pelo casal para o primogênito: Anacã – que é também uma ave da região amazônica. Que tal?

But it was the banner in the back that is surely the most exciting part of the set up. That’s because it very clearly said, “Anacã.” Not only a type of bird that lives in the Amazon (which totally goes with the animal theme of the shower), this is apparently the name of Candice’s soon-to-arrive baby boy. Eee!

Candice proudly posed in a white mini-dress and held her baby-bump for this adorable photo, and we couldn’t be more excited for news of the little guy’s arrival!
Are there any animal-related names you like/love/loathe? How about Cat, Bunny, Bear or …Donkey? Tweet us @BritandCo!

Back in January, we introduced you to a feel-good cause to inspire your New Year's resolution: a walking challenge to help raise funds for the amazing cancer fighters at The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. I took part in the challenge with the Brit + Co team and ended up walking 105+ miles in January — it was awesome.
This spring, there's a new challenge on the horizon, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Big Climb. The ask: On May 15, 2021, you can step up to take cancer down by committing to climb 1,311 steps, walking 3.2 miles, or doing 440 chair step-ups at home as part of the Big Climb. If you need some motivation to bring movement back into your daily routine — look no further!
As always, it's free to sign up, but climbers are encouraged to set a fundraising goal to help beat cancer. We'll be organizing another Brit + Co team to step up, and I hope you'll join us too! Keep scrolling for a peek at where I'll be completing the challenge in my Los Angeles neighborhood around the hidden Silver Lake Stairs. Happy climbing!
Never underestimate the power of an accountability buddy! I asked my in-laws, my partner, and a few friends to join me so we can keep each other motivated and accountable in completing the challenge — virtual high-fives all around! Also, my dog Fox is a great climber, too.
An aesthetically pleasing backdrop is a huge motivator for me! I'm fortunate to have all sorts of painted steps around my neighborhood to keep the challenge interesting, but you can also keep cool inside with at-home chair step-ups.
Don't forget to share your progress on social — #BigClimb!
Feel free to break the challenge up if you need to by tackling half the distance in the AM and half at sunset. Here's me 1,311 steps later and ready for a break — but, think I earned this one!
