It’s an exciting time for former Miss South Africa and Miss World Rolene Strauss. After already releasing a spoken word record last year and announcing plans for her first book, the star has now announced that she’s pregnant.
“We decided to get pregnant again at the end of last year,” Rolene says in a recent interview. “Literally three days later [after the decision] my son ran up to me and said, ‘Mommy, Mommy, there’s a baby in your tummy!’” It wasn’t long after that she started feeling nauseous all the time and decided to take a pregnancy test. “And the rest is history,” she says.
Rolene and husband D’Niel are already parents to a boy, whose name they don’t want to appear in the media, and felt like now was the right time to try for a second child. “For a while we could give him all our time and attention. So it feels that the time is right to get pregnant again,” Rolene says. “I’d like to give birth in January or February.”
