‘Rocky’ star gives birth at 54
BRIGITTE Nielsen says she has given birth at age 54.
According to the NY Post, the model, actress and reality star and her 39-year-old husband Mattia Dessi released a statement to People magazine on Saturday saying their daughter Frida was born on Friday in Los Angeles and weighed 5 pounds, 9 ounces.
It's the fifth child but first daughter for Nielsen, who has four adult sons from previous marriages. She married Dessi, her fifth husband, in 2006.
In a statement, the couple said, "We are overjoyed to welcome our beautiful daughter into our lives," and "it's been a long road, and so worth it."
Nielsen revealed her exceptionally late-in-life pregnancy last month by posting photos of herself lounging with hands on her belly on Instagram and Twitter, saying the family is getting larger.
