Cape Town - It won’t be much longer till the stork comes to deliver a bundle of joy to Jo-Ann Strauss’ family.

The former Miss South Africa and Top Billing presenter is expected to give birth in June. 

Jo-Ann and her husband, orthopedic surgeon Dr Michael Held, are pregnant with their third child in just four years – they’re already parents to a little boy and girl.

The anticipation is being felt not only by the parents – on Monday morning Jo-Ann’s friends and family gathered to celebrate the imminent arrival of her new baby.

One of her friends, Kwêla presenter Minki van der Westhuizen, posted a photo from the adorable baby shower on Instagram with the caption: “Thank you, lovely Jo-Ann, for a beautiful morning.”

The celebration, held at the Belmond Mount Nelson Hotel in Cape Town, was a fancy affair with stunning floral arrangements and a cake almost too beautiful to eat.

Judging by the snaps it was easy to tell Jo-Ann’s expecting a baby girl. Not only was the cake pink, the mom-to-be was radiant in a pink skirt with a crown of pink flowers on her head. 

She bubbled over on Instagram about the special morning, writing: “Who run the world? Girls! And in a few weeks’ time we’ll have two and a strong big brother to help look after his sisters.”
