Romee Strijd is pregnant with husband Laurens van Leeuwen.

The Victoria’s Secret Angel took to Instagram to announce the happy news, sharing a photo which showed the couple cradling her baby bump.

The caption to their happy image, started simply, “WE’RE HAVING A BABY.”

Romee then went on to speak about some of the medical issues that she has been dealing with.

“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,” Romee stated.

Her message continued with the model writing, “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.”

She then added, “I started to research PCOS and came to the conclusion that mine was not the typical pcos.. Mine was because of my body being in fight or flight mode.. which means my body was under constant stress.”

Romee’s support for others

Romee ended her message on an uplifting note, saying “I’m so happy and grateful to say that I got my period back last november AND that WE’RE SOON A FAMILY OF THREE ❤ ❤❤❤ & to the women trying to conceive, believe in yourself and be nice for yourself and your body and don’t let those thoughts get to you to much.[sic]”

WE’RE HAVING A BABY 💗 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.. I started to research PCOS and came to the conclusion that mine was not the typical pcos.. Mine was because of my body being in fight or flight mode.. which means my body was under constant stress. I never felt mentally super stressed so it was hard te understand this, but my life consisted of travelling all the time (no biorhythm), working out every day, eating super clean (restricting foods). I think I pressured my body to much, and honestly every body is so different but I think my weight was not good for my body to function properly and couldn’t handle the constant traveling. This was the point where I started to research natural healing for PCOS and came to the conclusion that I should do way less high intensity training, don’t restrict foods, be nice to myself, and take breaks when needed. I also tried some natural supplements, acupuncture and we got a place back in the Netherlands as well, so we could spend more time with Family (since im such a family person). I’m so happy and grateful to say that I got my period back last november AND that WE’RE SOON A FAMILY OF THREE ❤ ❤❤❤ & to the women trying to conceive, believe in yourself and be nice for yourself and your body and don’t let those thoughts get to you to much 😚

A post shared by Laurens van Leeuwen (@laurensvleeuwen) on

In addition to their social media announcement that a baby was on the way, the couple also made a YouTube video yesterday titled ‘WE’RE EXPECTING’.

Renee started out the video by saying, “Hey guys, so we’re here to tell you guys something and actually something that we thought would never happen for us.”

As the music starts up in the background, Renee speaks about how they have been together for seven years and that they immediately knew that it was going to be a relationship that lasted.

The video ends with an ultrasound video and the message, “we can’t wait for this new chapter.”

With the social media presence that the pair have, it’s likely fans will be getting a lot of baby updates over the next few months from both Romee and van Leeuwen.

In other baby news, we told today how Kelly Clarkson has admitted wanting another child. Meanwhile, Jinger Dugger and Jeremy Vuolo yesterday revealed they are expecting their second child after previously suffering a miscarriage.
