A Look Into Hermann Nicoli’s Life and His Relationship with Ex-Wife Candice Swanepoel

Hermann Nicoli is a charming Brazilian model who is currently living his childhood dreams of being a model. Despite being a successful model capable of promoting any brand, he is known by most for his relationship with the famous Victoria Secret supermodel, Candice Swanepoel. His career breakthrough came in the form of a deal with Next Model Management and since then, he has gone all the way to achieve international stardom, modeling around the world for top fashion brands such as Tommy Hilfiger, Nike, and Marks and Spencer, among others.

For someone who has been able to pull off modeling gigs with some of the most famous brands, there is no doubt that Nicoli has come a long way in his pursuit of a modeling career. This has made a lot of people interested in his background story as much as they kept up with what he had with Swanepoel.

Early Life and How Hermann Nicoli Became a Model

Named Hermann Nicoli Rise at birth, the model was born on July 8, 1982, in Brazil. He is of Brazilian nationality and Caucasian ethnicity. There is very little information as regards his family, except the fact that he was raised by his parents alongside his two sisters named Gabi and Sabrina Nicoli. He is well versed in English and Portuguese languages. As of date, there is no information as to where he had his elementary, high school, and college education.

From what we gathered, Hermann’s interest in modeling began to manifest when he was still a young boy. It is said that he often pretended to be walking the runway while playing with his sisters. In addition to that, he would declare to anyone who cared to listen that becoming a model was what he wanted to do with his life.

While there is no information regarding the year he became a professional model, several sources claim it was during his teen years. According to the model himself, he started his career as a model in Brazil by modeling for local fashion brands. Over time, he became a popular figure in Brazil which eventually led to him being signed by the famous modeling agency, Next Model Management.

Nicoli stands at a height of 6 feet 1 inch (185 cm) and maintains his body weight around 80 kg. His most attractive body feature beside his long light brown hair is his pair of green eyes. There is no doubt that his good looks have helped his career a great deal.

However, what he earns per annum is pretty much unknown.

What We Know About Their Separation

Even though the Hermann Nicoli and Candice Swanepoel relationship saw the birth of two sons, it was not enough to keep them together. The ex-couple welcomed their first child on the 5th of October 2016 and named him Anaca Nicoli. Sometime in June 2018, Candice gave birth to their second child named Ariel Nicoli.


It was in mid-2019 that Candice revealed that she and Nicoli were no longer together. She disclosed this without specifying why they parted ways. Candice’s revelation came as a confirmation of what had already been widely speculated. This is because the two stopped posting pictures of each other on social media and later unfollowed each other.

The reason behind their separation has remained a secret and both of them are yet to find another partner, at least to the best of our knowledge.
