Jo-Ann Strauss is known to so many and regarded as one of the most beautiful women in celebville.
Seeing her showing off her baby bump is so cute. It has not been easy as there was a rare pregnancy complication.
Briefly.co.za learnt that the former Miss South Africa shared the exciting news that she and hubby Michael Held are expecting their fourth child.
“Thank you for all the kind messages and congratulations. Our family is incredibly excited to welcome a new member later this year. It's our little rainbow in this confusing and uncertain time. I am delighted to be sporting my little bump and my kids are constantly stroking my belly and chatting to Peanut Butter (they have unanimously decided on this name).”
After the happy news was shared, Jo-Ann again posted on Instagram that this pregnancy looks the same as her others, and she has gone through a difficult time.
The complication that Jo-Ann has experienced during pregnancy is called hyperemesis gravidarum.
“I experience extreme 'morning sickness' and fatigue throughout my pregnancies. It's called hyperemesis gravidarum and I usually would go into hospital every few weeks or days to be rehydrated and get extra vitamins.”
With Jo-Ann having gone through three pregnancies before she explained that not many women experience the extreme condition. People sent through some remedies and Jo-Ann was touched by the caring people showed her.
“Not many people experience the condition (fortunately) so when people suggest I just chew on some ginger, I smile politely and say that I've consumed my body weight in ginger and still vomit ... at least 3 times a day.”
