Brigitte Nielson turns 55 and says "it's the best time" of her life
Brigitte Nielson is cherishing the moment life has given her as she feels blessed to be surrounded by her children and husband.
Brigitte Nielsen has everything she ever wanted and she is stepping into 55 surrounded by everyone she loves. Brigitte turned 55 on Sunday (July 15), a month after she welcomed her fifth child, a daughter, Frida. “Celebrating my birthday has never been more exciting,” she told People. “It’s the best time of my life, with my adorable little Frida, my wonderful husband, and four beautiful grown-up sons.” Brigitte also added that people must enjoy every aspect of life because everyone only gets one. “Life is amazing, you only get one, so take good care of it, and live it to the fullest," she added. Brigitte added that they are extremely happy to welcome the newest addition to their family.
“We are overjoyed to welcome our beautiful daughter into our lives,” she said. “It’s been a long road, and so worth it. We’ve never been more in love.” The pair welcomed their daughter on June 22. At the time of her birth, the newborn weighed 5 lbs. 9 oz. “We are overjoyed to welcome our beautiful daughter into our lives,” the pair told People at that time. “It’s been a long road, and so worth it. We’ve never been more in love.”
Prior to welcoming their daughter, Brigitte took to Instagram to post a sweet message for her husband on account of Father's day. With their hands on the baby bump, she captioned the picture as, “You’ll be a great papà ❤ Ti amo 💋 #fathersday #daddy #love#family.”
The actress is already mother to four sons, Raoul Meyer Jr., 23, Douglas Meyer, 25, Killian Gastineau, 28, and Julian Winding, 34. Bridget had announced her pregnancy in May on her social media. She wore a figure-hugging dress that showed off her growing baby bump. “Family getting larger #me #family #brigittenielsen #babybump,” she captioned the photo at that time. Mattai, who married Bridget in 2006 also took to his Instagram to show yet another picture of the proud mama. He captioned the picture as, “Happy time positive vibes.”
Interestingly, their first "marriage" in 2005, was not legal, because she was still married to her fourth husband Raoul. "[It] was more like an official engagement,” the 'Beverley Hills Cop II' actress' manager, Luigi Balduini, told the magazine at the time, adding, "They put it on the news that it was a marriage, but it was an engagement, because she was still legally married."
The pair had met while they were shooting for 'Strange Love' and the series ended with Bridget seemingly choosing her current husband over then boyfriend Flavor Flav. Even though the spark between the pair was evident at that time, neither of them admitted to being in a romantic relationship with each other and insisted that they shared a "strong friendship." However, the pair is happily married now and are counting their blessings after welcoming their precious daughter, Frida.
