Romee Strijd , the former Victoria’s Secret Angel is expecting her second child with her fiance Laurens Van Leeuwen
“Soon we will be a family of 4,” the 26-year-old model wrote in an Instagram post of the three of them. “Can’t wait.”
Strijd gave birth to her first daughter, Mint, in December 2020 after a years-long struggle with polycystic ovarian syndrome, or PCOS.
WE’RE HAVING A BABY ?,” she wrote when she announced her first pregnancy. “2 years ago I got diagnosed with PCOS after not getting my period for 7 years. I was devastated because being a mom and starting a family with @laurensvleeuwen is my biggest dream.. I was so scared that I would never be able to because I got told it was harder to get babies in a natural way.”
On Mint’s first birthday in December 2021, Romme marked the “special” occasion on social media. She said, “This year has been so special. Our lifes [sic] have changed completely, from always on the go and working non stop to being your mom and dad in the Netherlands surrounded by family. … You make us smile every day (and tired every morning).”
The next month, the Alexander McQueen model revealed her engagement, writing “I said YES,” on a photo from their holiday in Switzerland.
