Cape Town – Bringing a new life into the world is always a magical moment for parents all over the world including local celeb Jo-Ann Strauss who was crowned Miss South Africa in 2001.

The TV presenter and public speaker now runs a blog called Modern Mommy and that's where she broke the news that she had welcomed her baby girl into the world and added that she is going to take a break from posting for a while. Which we totally get, because taking care of a newborn is obviously wonderful, but also tiring, work. 

Here's the post:

Jo-Ann has another child - (a son) whom she gave birth to in 2014- with husband Michael Held. The beautiful model usually keeps her private life out of the public eye but her Modern Mom Instagram offers rare insight into it.
