Dutch model Romee Strijd had a big ending to 2020 when she welcomed her first child with partner Laurens van Leeuwen. The duo has been together since January 2010 and shared they were expecting their first child in June 2020. The announcement came two years after Romee opened up about her polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) diagnosis.
"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 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," she wrote in the caption of her pregnancy announcement on Instagram. "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 😚."
