Actress and model Brigitte Nielson, best known for starring alongside former husband Sylvester Stallone in Rocky IV, is pregnant at age 54.
This will be Brigitte’s fifth child, but her first with current husband, 39-year-old Mattia Dessi, who she married in 2006. She took to Instagram to show off her baby bump, with the caption ‘family getting larger’. Nielson’s other children are aged between 23 and 34.
Brigitte appeared in several 80s movies, including Rocky IV, Cobra and Beverly Hills Cop II. More recently she’s been a regular on the reality TV circuit, making appearances on Celebrity Big Brother UK and Celebrity Rehab with Dr Drew.
The former Playboy model, who has been married five times, had spoken to Hello! magazine in 2008 about wanting to have a baby with husband Mattia.
“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.”
