Brigitte Nielsen Announces She’s Pregnant At Age 54!
Actress and model Brigitte Nielsen has announced she is expecting a baby with husband Mattia Dessi at the age of 54. It will be the Danish/Italian actress’ fifth child but the first with Dessi.
Nielsen has four adult sons including one with ex-fiancé, former NFL player Mark Gastineau. Nielsen married Mattia Dessi, 39 in 2006 and at the time said she would like to have more children.
“The children have kept me going,” she said.
“After I do Playboy, we want to try IVF. It’s asking a lot, but if it’s possible, it would make our package complete.”
The leggy blonde is perhaps best known for starring in “Rocky IV” and “Cobra” alongside Sylvester Stallone, who she was married to from 1985 to 1987.
Nielsen was also married to Kasper Winding from 1983 to 1984, Sebastian Copeland from 1990 to 1992 and Raoul Meyer from 1993 to 2005.
In 2005 she appeared in the reality series “Strange Love,” which centered on her relationship with rapper Flavor Flav. The pair had met earlier on another VH1 reality series, “The Surreal Life.”
The actress is one of the latest celebrities to announce a pregnancy later in life. Janet Jackson gave birth to her first son Eissa at the age of 50 and actress Rachel Weisz, 48, announced that she and her husband, actor Daniel Craig, were expecting their first child together.
