It seems that Trijntje Oosterhuis had more than just singing on her mind at the Eurovision Song Contest 2015, as she has revealed today that she is pregnant with her third child. The Dutch singer made the announcement on her website. Given that her due date is in December, the “Walk Along” singer would have been two months pregnant when she performed in Vienna.
That might explain why Trijntje went through so many different outfits in Vienna. She quickly discarded her first figure-hugging dress (after a universally negative reaction). Could Trijntje have gone with the ill-fitting “parachute” dress to hide her baby bump? If so, maybe the Barbara Dex award was worth it in the end!
The new arrival will be Trijntje’s third child after her two sons from her previous marriage. The father is her boyfriend Alvin Lewis. With baby on the way, Trijntje has had to reschedule a series of concerts planned for the end of the year. She’s not planning on taking too long off though: she plans to join her band the Ladies of Soul for concerts in February 2016.
We’re sending some big love and congratulations to Trijntje. After her disappointment in Vienna, this seems like a wonderful consolation. Maybe we’ll see the newest Oosterhuis following in his or her mother’s footsteps at Junior Eurovision in ten years time? Why-ay-ay-ay not!
