The 54-year-old Red Sonja actress Brigitte Nielsen welcomed her fifth child on Friday. And now just days after her baby girl was born, Brigitte gave the world a glimpse of her newborn via her Instagram account. The post showcased an image of the actress holding her child, who was born weighing 5 lbs. 9 oz, in the hospital. In conversation with People, she revealed that she named her baby girl Frida. She said: “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 father of her child is a 39-year-old Italian TV producer named Mattia Dessi; she married him back in 2006. Mattia is her fifth husband. Brigitte was previously married to Sylvester Stallone from 1985 until 1987 and Kasper Winding from 1983 until 1984,  Sebastian Copeland from 1990 until 1992 and Raoul Meyer from 1993 to 2003.  She also has four sons: Julian, 34, Killian, 28, Douglas, 25, and Raoul, 23. Frida is first the movie star’s first daughter. She shared the news about her pregnancy in May, just a month before the delivery, via an Instagram post in which she posed with her hands embracing her baby bump.  

She captioned the post, “family getting larger,” with a heart emoji at the end. In the days leading up to her delivery, she posted several other pictures with her baby bump. In one she posed by the beach in a flowy gown, rocking a pair of pink sunglasses. On Father’s Day, the bold beauty posted a picture with her husband touching her baby bump in a car. She captioned the heart-warming picture, “you'll be a great papa.” She ended the caption in Italian: “Ti amo.”

Brigitte is most commonly known for her roles in 1985's Rocky IV, 1986's Cobra and 1987's Beverly Hills Cop II. She most definitely reflects the strength her characters embodied, for she took on the challenging task of having a child later in life. BBC reported that she joins a number of other celebrities who have chosen to conceive at a later stage in their lives, including Janet Jackson and Rachel Weisz. Janet Jackson welcomed her first child at 50 last year. She named her baby boy Eissa Al Mana. Earlier this April, Rachel Weisz, 48, announced that she will be expecting another child with her husband Daniel Craig.
