“Mint van Leeuwen ~ feeling so blessed to finally hold you in my arms,” she wrote on Instagram at the time. “We are so in love with you!!”
Since her first pregnancy announcement, the runway model has been open about her struggle with PCOS, also known as polycystic ovarian syndrome. In 2020, she shared news of her diagnosis after, as she explained, not having her period for seven years.
“I was devastated because being a mom and starting a family with @laurensvleeuwen is my biggest dream,” she wrote on Instagram at the time, announcing her first pregnancy. “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.”
However, Romee explained that following a regular routine of “less high intensity training,” less food restriction, self-care and taking breaks as needed, she was “happy and grateful” to say that “WE’RE SOON A FAMILY OF THREE.”
She concluded her 2020 post, “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.”
