The 22-year-old has been linked to the lingerie company for years and walked the runway in last year's (15) Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show.

Josephine has just landed the cover of the new VS Swim catalogue, and now Ed Razek, Chief Marketing Officer of Victoria’s Secret, has announced she's one of the elite.

"Josephine Skriver is a stunning young woman and a delightful person," he said. "She is so special and we are enormously happy to welcome her to the most exclusive club in the history of modelling, The Victoria’s Secret Angels."

Thrilled by her new title, Josephine posted a shot of her screaming on Instagram on Friday (19Feb16) and added, "It's has happened!! (sic). I'm literally living my dream right now!

"Can't believe I get to share with you today that I'm #NewestAngel for @victoriassecret thanks to everyone that has helped to get me here! So humble and proud to be a part of such an amazing legacy!! THAAAAANK YOU from the bottom of my heart to everyone who believed in me!! (sic)"

Skriver joins the likes of veteran Victoria's Secret Angels Candice Swanepoel, Adriana Lima and Alessandra Ambrosio as company spokesmodels.

"So overwhelmed with every happy emotion right now!" she continued. "I don't even know how to be in my own body! It still feels so insane the day is finally here!"

The Scandinavian stunner was born an IVF baby to gay parents and her boyfriend, Alexander DeLeon, is the frontman of Las Vegas rockers The Cab.
