She missed the 2016 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, after leaving to start a family with long-term boyfriend Hermann Nicoli.
But Candice Swanepoel was back on top form on Sunday, as she rocked the runway in lingerie in Shanghai, China for the 2017 spectacular.
With rock hard abs and lean legs, Candice, 29, seemed to be in better shape than ever, almost a year to the day since welcoming Anacã.

She was red hot in tiny scarlet knickers and a push up bra, modelling a huge flame costume on her back.
To the look, she accessorised with coloured peep toe boots and sleeves that matched a rainbow-coloured collar.
In a second, tartan lingerie set, the blonde bombshell’s fantastic abs were on full display.

Parading her sensational figure, the South African born beauty barely seemed to have aged a day since her last appearance in 2015, which took place in New York.
Candice was reunited with old friends on the catwalk, including models Elsa Hosk and Alessandra Ambrosio.
She has been walking for the underwear brand since 2010, notably missing out on the 2016 show.
In 2013, Swanepoel was named the cover model of the coveted Victoria’s Secret Swim Catalogue and later that year, she was chosen to wear the ‘Fantasy Bra’ in the 2013 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show.

The 10 million dollar bra, named the ‘Royal Fantasy Bra’, was created by Mouawad.
The bra and its matching belt featured over 4,200 precious gems, including rubies, diamonds and yellow sapphires set in 18 carat gold with a 52-carat ruby at the center.
It was only last October that the model gave birth to her first child Anacã with her long-term boyfriend Hermann.

She was 17 when she first met her Brazilian model beau in Paris and they went onto get engaged in August 2015.
The proud mum revealed she has been devoting a lot of time to her son and she couldn’t help but gush about how her son was ‘incredible’.
In recent months, she wrote on Instagram: ‘Anacã is incredible – I look at him and I can’t believe he’s mine. As a young girl, I didn’t ask to hold other people’s babies but I definitely felt nature’s call to be a mummy and I’m just loving it.
‘The first few months devoting my time to him has been really important.’
The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show will air on November 28 on CBS.
