Who is Hermann Nicoli?

Hermann Nicoli was born in Brazil, on 8 July 1982 – his zodiac sign is Cancer and he holds Brazilian nationality. He is a model, but who might be known best for being the ex-husband of famous South African model and philanthropist Candice Swanepoel.

Childhood and education

Hermann was raised alongside his sisters Gabi and Sabrina in Brazil, while he has been keeping the details of his private life to himself, except for his marriage – it’s believed that he was raised in a middle-class family, but that his parents worked hard to put food on the table.

Hermann was interested in sports while attending high school, and played soccer for the school’s team, however, after being noticed by a modelling scout and offered his first contract with a modelling agency, Hermann decided to focus on his career as a model. He matriculated in 2000 and then chose not to attend college but to focus on his career.

Career as a model

Hermann has been part of the modelling industry for just over two decades now, while not a lot is known about the designers he might have walked the catwalk for, nor about the magazines in which he has been featured – as of December 2020, he is signed to Next Model Management.

Love life and marriage with Candice Swanepoel

Hermann met Candice Swanepoel during a fashion event in Paris, France in 2005 – at that time, Hermann was 23 while Candice was only 17. As they’ve described it, they were almost instantly attracted to each other, and started dating a couple of weeks later. They dated for the following 10 years before Hermann asked Candice to marry him in August 2015 – it was announced in March 2016 that Candice was pregnant and they welcomed their son Anaca on 5 October of the same year.

Neither Candice nor Hermann have talked about the people they might have dated since their divorce, and as of December 2020, Hermann is single, was once married and has two sons.

Hobbies and other interests

Hermann is physically very active as this is important for his career as a model – he has four to five training sessions at the gym each week, and follows a strict diet, thus his muscular body. He also often plays various sports with his friends, such as soccer and tennis.

He is keen on travelling, and his career as a model has taken him to many US states, as well as various European and Asian countries, while his dream travel destination is Paris in France.

He is a lover of animals and has two pet dogs.

1I grew in a farm in South Africa and I was scouted there and they sent me to Europe. It's kind of been blessed, since then it happened all so fast.
2I was a ballet dancer growing up and that's what I was convinced I would be. I was very skinny, braces; so I never thought I would be a model.
3[on her weight loss speculation]: I am healthy and happy. I'm heartened to know how much everyone cares about me, but in this case everything is normal and good.
4[on her favorite fashion designers] My favorite designers are Chloe, D&G, Christian Louboutin and Marc Jacobs. I change my style from day to day, so I have many favorites.
