In December 2020, Strijd gave birth to Mint. Along with posting a photo, she gushed, “Mint van Leeuwen ~ feeling so blessed to finally hold you in my arms. We are so in love with you!!"
Romee also opened up about her struggles with polycystic ovary syndrome, which can cause infrequent periods and infertility. She wrote, “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..”
After much research, she determined that her PCOS was the result of too much stress on her body. She revealed, “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).”
