At 55, the Danish actress gave birth to a daughter with her fifth husband Mattias Dessi. Speaking to ET Online at the red carpet for her new film 'Creed II', the star spoke about her 5-month old daughter, Frida. “I had a miracle little daughter and I am playing the same character, Ludmilla, that I did in Rocky IV 35 years ago!” She continued, “So, life is incredible, you only get one life, so everybody enjoy because life is amazing!”

Nielsen who turned 55 in July, had her daughter in June after years of persistence and trying. Offering words of inspiration she said, ”Let me tell you, I have been wanting this little girl for 10 years. She is literally a miracle and I want to say to all the women out there, don't you ever give up. “Actually, to men and women, of course, 'cause life is amazing. Someone has to win the lottery; I felt like I did with my little daughter, so thank you very much.”

Daily Mail reports that Nielsen conceived her daughter through in-vitro fertilization. She chose to freeze her eggs at 40 anticipating wanting another child in the future. Talking about how her daughter fills her heart with joy she said, "When she smiles at me, and with those big dark eyes, she looks so into my soul. She doesn't look at me. She looks at my heart and my soul. She's amazing." The actress has four other children from her previous relationships. She has been married to TV producer Dessi since 2006. In her new film 'Creed II', she reunites with her ex-husband Sylvester Stallone. The former couple was married from 1985 to 1987 though they never had any children of their own.

At the premiere of the film in New York on Wednesday, Stallone arrived with his current wife Jennifer Flavin, 50, as well as with 20-year-old Sistine, one of their three daughters together. The upcoming 'Creed II' stars Michael B. Jordan as Adonis who takes on Florian Munteanu who plays Viktor Drago, the son of Rocky Balboa's arch-rival Ivan Drago (from Rocky IV). Ivan was the one who killed Adonis' father, Apollo Creed, in the ring -- and his wife, Ludmilla. The film releases on November 21 in the US.
