The catwalk queen looked stunning as ever, in a form-hugging black dress, which she paired with a black leather jacket and white combat boots.
The model’s long blonde tresses were parted in the middle and cascaded down her shoulders in waves.
Meanwhile her other half was casual cool in a grey hoodie, white pants and grey Converse sneakers.

Romee’s 7.5M followers were thrilled by the news, with her model friend Iskra Lawrence, 31, commenting ‘Congrats [heart eye emoji] they will be the cutest eligible besties.’

‘Soon we will be a family of 4. Can’t wait,’ she wrote in the caption, adding a teary eye emoji along with a white heart.

The blonde bombshell shared the happy news to her Instagram, posting a photo of her beau on one knee, as he waited for her answer.
‘I said YES,’ the caption underneath the photo – which showed the spectacular Switzerland mountains in the back – read.
While announcing her first pregnancy in May of 2020, Romee spoke about motherhood being her ‘biggest dream’ amid fears about ‘natural’ conception following her diagnosis of Polycystic Ovary Syndrome after not getting her period for 7 years.

Romee explained that throughout her career, she had ‘pressured [her] body too much’ as she admitted she bypassed restrictive dieting and had relocated back the Netherlands to be closer her family.
‘I think my weight was not good for my body to function properly and couldn’t handle the constant traveling,’ she wrote on Instagram.
‘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.’
Her healthy approach helped, and the couple went on to welcome daughter Mint in December of 2020.
