Brigitte Neilsen Welcomes Her Fifth Child At 54 Years Of Age!
Brigitte Neilsen became a mum for the fifth time on Friday as she welcomed baby girl Frida!
The 54 year old actress who is married to Mattia Dessi, 39 spoke to People magazine about the birth saying, “We are overjoyed to welcome our beautiful daughter into our lives. It’s been a long road, and so worth it. We’ve never been more in love.”
The statuesque blonde and star of Beverly Hills Cop II has been married five times and is already mum to her four sons: Raoul Meyer Jr., 23, Douglas Meyer, 25, Killian Gastineau, 28, and Julian Winding, 34.
Nielsen announced her fifth pregnancy on Instagram and Twitter in late May, showing her baby bump in a figure-hugging grey dress.
“Family getting larger #me #family #brigittenielsen #babybump,” Nielsen captioned her photo.
The Danish-Italian model previously opened up about wanting to have more kids in an August 2008 interview. “The children have kept me going. 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,” Nielsen told Hello Magazine.
In the same interview, the actress also opened up about her years-long battle with alcohol addiction and how at times it’s affected her parenting.
“I’ve been a bad mum at times – when you take the bottle over your kids, you’re a bad mum,” she said. “But I love them and there has always been a close bond. I’ve been affectionate, caring. It’s unfortunate they’ve seen me in a bad way. But kids are great, they’re the most unconditional, forgiving people.”
