Romee Strijd and her partner Laurens van Leeuwen are expecting a baby girl.
The Victoria’s Secret Angel announced she was pregnant with her first child on Instagram in May, and over the weekend, the couple hosted an outdoor gender reveal party to find out the sex of their baby.
She posted a video of their loved ones yelling a countdown in Dutch off-camera as her and Laurens stand in a green space, with Laurens holding a metal canister. At the end of the countdown, he pressed a button and pink smoke came billowing out of the canister, announcing they are having a little girl. The friends can be heard squealing with excitement while Romee giggles at their reaction and exchanges a kiss with her beau.
“We can’t wait to meet our little girl,” she wrote in the caption, followed by a love heart emoji.
The 24-year-old’s model friends celebrated the news in the comments, with Karlie Kloss writing “Can’t wait to meet her” with loved-up eye emojis, Devon Windsor simply writing “Amazing” with love heart emojis, and Shanina Shaik adding: “Omg!!!! Little girl!!!!! Congratulations babe!!!!!”
Sara Sampaio, Miranda Kerr, Josephine Skriver, Nadine Leopold, Elsa Hosk, and Chiara Ferragni also commented on the post.
When she announced her pregnancy news in May, the Dutch model revealed that she thought she wouldn’t be able to have a baby after she was diagnosed with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). “Two years ago, I got diagnosed with PCOS after not getting my period for 7 years,” she admitted. “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.”
