Brigitte Nielsen Pregnant With Fifth Child At 54

Brigitte Nielsen is going to be a mom again!

On Sunday, May 27, 2018, the 54-year-old model took to Instagram to announce that she and husband Mattia Dessi are expecting their first child together. However, for the Danish-Italian actress, the couple's little bundle of joy will be baby no. 5.

"Family getting larger," Nielsen captioned a photo of herself showing off her baby bump, complete with a red heart emoji and the hashtags, "#me #family #brigittenielsen #babybump." On Wednesday, May 30, she shared a similar snapshot, writing, "Happy time positive vibes #happyness #positivevibes."

Nielsen and Dessi, a 39-year-old Italian model, tied the knot in 2006 — marking the reality TV star's fifth marriage. As People noted, she is already mom to four sons from her previous marriages: Julian Winding, 34, Killian Gastineau, 28, Douglas Meyer, 25, and Raoul Meyer Jr., 23.

"The children have kept me going," Nielsen told Hello! magazine in 2008, revealing that the married pair hoped to one day have children of their own. "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."

Following Nielsen's pregnancy announcement, a number of fans flooded her recent Instagram posts with messages of love and support, with those hoping to have kids later in life calling her an inspiration. "Nobody has the rights to lead your own decision unless you allow them to do so," she replied to one social media user (via E! News). "You're the only one in charge of yourself and your own happiness. Best of luck!"

Congratulations to the happy couple!
