Laurens Van Leeuwen and Romee Strijd make up a power couple in modeling. Not the kind of power couple that we are used to seeing in Hollywood, but a power couple nevertheless. The modeling duo has been around for years now and while Romee is undoubtedly the more famous of the two, it is safe to say that Laurens is catching up. Romee Strijd is a Dutch model who has been a Vicotria’s Secret Angel from 2014-2019. On the other hand, Laurens is also a model who has found a considerable fan following on social media but is yet to reach her heights. In this article, we will take a closer look at the wiki bio of Laurens Van Leeuwen.
Laurens Van Leeuwen was born on the 26th of November 1990, in the Netherlands. Born to Bert van Leeuwen, Laurens is the only son of the famous television personality and was raised alongside his sister. While his father was well known for hosting the TV show, Family Dinner, not much is known about his mother and the model has kept his silence. Laurens was interested in modeling at a very young age and was bullied during his early years. In response, Lauren hit the gym and started working on himself. Lauren was a highly athletic kid and was in the school’s football and track and field teams. After graduating from high school in 2008, Lauren decided against going to college and started working as a model.
Not much is known about Lauren’s career save the fact that he has worked with a few of the top names in the industry. He has kept at it for around 10 years and has enjoyed his time in the limelight with many brands including Hugo Boss and Giorgio Armani. Not exclusively dependent on one way of life, Lauren is also a business consultant and owns a clothing line of Party Pants. Lauren is pretty big on Instagram and has amassed a large number of fan followers in recent years.
While Lauren and Romee tied the knot in 2018, the pair have been together for quite a while. Romee and Lauren met in 2010 and began dating soon after. However, the duo kept the relationship under wraps not just to avoid media attention but also because Romee was just 15 years at the time. The official announcement came in 2013 when Romee turned 18, and five years later the pair decided to tie the knot. The marriage was done secretly with only the couple and a priest in attendance in 2018.
Things are looking bright for the pair who announced they were expecting their first child in May 2020. The news was exciting enough as it is but was even more exciting for Romee who has been open about her problems with Polycystic ovary syndrome and her unable to get pregnant. The problems were attributed to her heavy workouts and things worked out for the duo once Romee decided to dial down on her workouts. The child was born on December 2020 and gave her the name Mint van Leeuwen. The pair welcomed their second daughter June van Leeuwen on November 11, 2022, making a family of four.
