On Sunday, Romee and her husband revealed they were expecting a little girl.

Laurens stood at her side with a thick canister from which he filled the air with pink smoke.

‘We can’t wait to meet our little girl,’ captioned the catwalk star, adding a heart emoji for good measure.

Romee and Laurens, whose father is a famous TV presenter in the Netherlands, eloped in October 2018 after dating since 2010.

The model revealed last month that she was expecting her first child, following a year’s long struggle with polycistic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) that kept her from having periods for years.  

Romee wrote that ‘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,’ she added.

The model revealed: ‘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).’

Her solution was to give up the high-intensity training she had been doing and not to restrict her food choice, as well as being ‘nice to myself’ and taking breaks whenever she needs them.
