Who doesn't want to be an angel? Dutch model Romee Strjid, that's who.

"On the one hand, I would love to be a [Victoria's Secret] Angel," she said, "but on the other hand, you have to be all year round sleek and bikini-ready and that is not so easy for me."

It's no secret that being sleek and bikini-ready year round is difficult, especially after giving birth to a newborn girl! 

On December 5, 2020 Strijd posted to Instagram to announce the arrival of her beautiful baby girl into this world.

"Mint van Leeuwen ~ feeling so blessed to finally hold you in my arms" she posted in the caption of the photo, "We are so in love with you!!" But who is the father?

Romee Strijd and Laurens van Leeuwen married in 2018. 

The couple officially tied the knot in 2018, but didn't celebrate with a romantic wedding ceremony for “practical reasons.”

"It's just great that you have an official status when you work together and travel around the world," they said in an interview. "We still have to find the moment to hold our dream wedding and of course we will also receive wedding photos."

Romee Strijd struggled with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS).

Strijd and van Leeuwen tried to have a baby for two years. But Strijd’s PCOS delayed the childbearing process for the happy couple.

On May 28, 2020 she posted to Instagram to announce the news of the couple’s exciting pregnancy. 

“WE’RE HAVING A BABY [insert heart emoji],” she posted in the caption, alongside a photo of Van Leeuwen barely kissing her cheek. “2 years ago I got diagnosed with PCOS after not getting my period for 7 years.”

In the same post, she writes about how starting a family with Van Leeuwen has always been her biggest dream.

Laurens van Leeuwen is very active on social media.
