August 5th 2017: Gender Reveal Cake.Which color is inside the cake? Pink!! It’s a girl!! Congratulations Mirusia and Youri. Your little baby daughter will come to the world in early December 2017.
Facebook August 12, 2017:Youri and I are on a Babymoon in Singapore and we love it here! We ate at a wonderful restaurant in our favourite area of Bugis. I had a fantastic mango drink, and coincidentally our baby is currently as big as a large mango! I am now 23 weeks pregnant, over half way! So many cultures come together in this city and there is such a feeling of serenity. Have you been to Singapore before? Youri ate balloon bread with yoghurt dip.
We never heard of a “Babymoon”. So we consulted Wikipedia: “A babymoon is a relaxing vacation taken by couples who are expecting a child. Babymoons are often taken in luxurious locations, as the babymoon is seen as the last vacation that the couple will have alone until their child leaves home when they reach legal age. Babymoon travel is typically taken during the second trimester of pregnancy, when pre-natal complications and pre-term birth risk is at its lowest”. Enjoy your vacation Mirusia and Youri! We love your Facebook messages and photos! It gives us the feeling to become all aunts and uncles of your baby!
Two pregnant sopranos! It's so lovely that one of my best friends in the world is pregnant at the same time as me. Big congratulations to my sister-in-song, Carmen Monarcha. I can't wait to share baby memories together.

I am now officially 6 months pregnant and therefore, my baby bump is starting to show. So a new "maternity dress" for stage was made by the amazing Gosia Tarnowski! What do you think?
November 15th 2017: Weekend Magazine.A Dream Pregnancy. Mirusia Louwerse feels great. The Australian singer who became famous when she began touring with André Rieu and his orchestra, is pregnant with a daughter. “The due date is set to 7 December and everything is going very well. My bump is growing and I have had a dream pregnancy. The first few weeks after finding out, I was worried I might get morning sickness, but I never did!” When Mirusia found out she was pregnant she found herself in a rollercoaster of emotions. In the same period her Grandmother, with whom she was very close, passed away. “Youri and I are expecting a little girl and in that way it’s almost like the circle-of-life. Did you know that our daughter is “Made in Holland”? Haha. We found out during my ‘From the Heart’ tour. We can’t wait till our daughter is born.” Says the excited singer.

What a thrill and coincidence it was for us to be pregnant at the same time! In our lives we have shared so much together, on and off stage, and to be able to share this special time in our lives was just another wonderful experience. Now we join forces again: 8 December - Riverstage, Brisbane; 13 December - Dunstan Playhouse, Adelaide; 16 December - Kedron-Wavell, Brisbane.
