Victoria's Secret Angel Romee Strijd Is Pregnant After PCOS Diagnosis

Romee Strijd, well known for being a Victoria’s Secret Angel for five years, is pregnant with her first child with Laurens van Leeuwen.

The 24-year-old Dutch model announced, “WE’RE HAVING A BABY” on her Instagram.

“2 years ago I got diagnosed with PCOS [Polycystic ovary syndrome] 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,” she continued.

She added, “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.”

She concluded with, “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.”

If you missed the news, Victoria’s Secret added new a few new Angels last year – meet them all here.

FYI: Romee is wearing a Cult Gaia dress in the announcement photo.
