Cantik can also mean pretty I thought? I just got this wrong

My nephews are beautiful. Why is this incorrect?

Nephew = Keponakan Laki-laki (male) Niece = Keponakan perempuan (female)

It should be "My nephew is handsome and my niece is beautiful"

You can call male or female beautiful in english, it's less traditional but perfectly correct and increasingly common
