‘In your bikini in the photo is actually the most relaxed when you’re pregnant, I found out yesterday’, Birgit writes with the photo, which shows how her baby bump has grown. She says that she doesn’t have to think about “holding” her belly. Birgit continues that you never have to hold your stomach in a photo anyway. “But I think almost everyone who takes a picture in swimwear is aware of what the most flattering pose for her/his/them body is.”
Birgit already has a son, Chico (12), from her marriage to director Arne Toonen. The couple broke up in 2019. Birgit is now together with Sander van Haarlem. They are now expecting their first child together.
Her sister Katja also became a mother for the second time at a later age and gave birth to a daughter last year. In the video below, Katja looks back on the violent birth: “I was puking in the bath from the pain.”
