Candice Swanepoel has got engaged

Candice Swanepoel has got engaged to Hermann Nicoli.

The Victoria's Secret Angel, 26, and the Brazilian model, 33, are set to tie the knot after 10 years of dating.

A source close to the South African beauty told E! News: "She couldn't be happier."

Earlier this year, Candice admitted she is eager to start a family, but claimed she already felt married.

She said: "I would love to have children. I'm not sure about marriage yet. 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 blonde beauty, who learned Portuguese from her long-term beau, also suggested at the time that spending time apart was the key to their successful relationship.

She explained: "That's [being apart] what keeps it going. No, seriously, it's important to travel and be apart and miss each other.

"In the beginning it was long-distance and when you long for something so much, I think it's a good thing.

"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.

"It's hard... If I was to meet somebody [now] it'd be hard for them to understand all the things I've gone through and he's been through that from the beginning."
