The secret is out!

Candice Swanepoel, who is expecting her first child with fiancé Hermann Nicoli, posted a breathtaking black-and-white photo to her Instagram account Tuesday, with a simple caption letting the world know the sex of her baby on the way.

“My not so little boy,” the 27-year-old Victoria’s Secret Angel wrote.

Though this is the first time the South African supermodel, 27, has addressed her baby’s sex, she has shared quite a few stunning maternity photos on Instagram.

“Getting the Tum in the sun,” she captioned one shot in April, which depicted Swanepoel in a green crochet bikini. Later that month, she shared a pic of herself baring her belly in a pose that was made to look like she was holding up the moon.

The mom-to-be and Nicoli, a Brazilian model, have been together for over 10 years. The couple were engaged last summer.

Swanepoel hasn’t shared how far along she is in her pregnancy, but she’s in good company: Fellow Victoria’s Secret Angel and best friend Behati Prinsloo is expecting a daughter with husband Adam Levine.

“They both have been experiencing the first stages of being pregnant together and are happy to have each other who understand,” a source told E! in March.
