She is currently busy with her medical studies at the University of the Free State previously told YOU how the timing of their baby’s arrival works perfectly for her and her businessman husband D’Niel Strauss. “It works out so nicely that the baby is due between December and New Year – just after my fourth year is done and before my final year starts.”

This means that their baby will be born under either the Sagittarius (23/11 – 21/12) or Capricorn (22/12 – 20/1) star sign.

According to astrology-zodiac-signs.com Capricorns are known for their professionalism, traditional values and their important role that family plays in their lives, while Sagittarians are described as extroverts, who are energetic, optimistic, and enthusiastic and who enjoy change, freedom and adventure.

They are passionate travellers who want to experience as much as possible. It reminds one a bit of mom who during her Miss World reign travelled the world and visited more than 20 countries!

Rolene often posts on social media about how blessed she feels about the bundle of joy being on his or her way. “What a privilege to have a small, miracle-person growing inside you. I pray for health, wisdom and an endless life to raise this little one to the best of our ability. I am grateful to have a one-in-a-million teammate and husband walking this path with me.” She lives a healthy lifestyle and still exercises regularly. “This baby is already a part of the 5am club,” she recently wrote alongside a picture posted to Instagram. “Up early every morning for a workout to start our day right.”


Even though they baby is still inside her, they lucky tot still has a busy life. “I already know that this little one is going to be the light of our lives – have done a lot of studying, exams, exercising and events with me,” Rolene recently said on Instagram.

D’niel lives in Stellenbosch, roughly 1 000 km from where Rolene is studying. Until she graduates next year, a long distance relationship is all they can manage. “We are made wise not by the recollection of our past, but by the responsibility for our future,” are some wise words Rolene recently posted on her Facebook page.

She added that her and D’niel have spent the greater part of their marriage apart – the couple married in February. “No one ever said it would be easy, it is hard every single day we are apart. We made this choice and very soon we are going to look back and know it was wise at the time.” With such wise (and beautiful!) parents we cannot wait to meet their future prince or princess.
