Brigitte Nielsen Is Pregnant With Her Fifth Child At Age Of 54
Danish actress Brigitte Nielsen is famous for her statuesque physicality (she stands 6’1″ tall), starring in 80s action films (like Red Sonja and Beverly Hills Cop II), and appearing in 2000s reality TV shows (like The Surreal Life and Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew). Now, she can add late-in-life pregnancy to that illustrious list.
The 54-year-old Nielsen announced the news to the world by debuting her baby bump on Instagram. The father is Italian TV producer Mattia Dessì, whom she has been married to since 2006. This will be Nielsen’s fifth child. She has four sons from previous relationships, ranging in age from 23 to 34.
The actress had previously been married to Kasper Winding, brother of director Nicolas Winding Refn, from 1983-84, as well as Sylvester Stallone, whom she starred with in Rocky IV and Cobra, from 1985-87. She also dated rapper/hype man Flavor Flav for a spell in 2005 after they met on The Surreal Life.
