Actress Brigitte Nielsen is pregnant with her fifth child at the age of 54. The six-foot beauty, who is currently married to Italian TV producer Mattia Dessi, shared the happy news with a stunning photo of herself sporting a significant baby bump, and captioned it, "family getting larger ❤️[sic]." 

Shortly afterwards, Brigitte posted yet another photo of herself – sporting a pair of sunglasses and a scarf - that shows off her growing baby bump. The photo was accompanied by the caption, "Happy time. Positive vibes." 

The actress, who used to be married to 'Rocky' star Sylvestor Stallone, is already mother to four sons - Julian, 34, from her first marriage to Kasper Winding — Killian, 28 — from her relationship with former NFL star Marcus Gastineau — and Douglas, 25, and Raoul, 23, — from her fourth marriage to Raoul Meyer. 

The baby-in-the-making will be her first with 39-year-old hubby Mattia, whom she has been married to since 2006.  

Interestingly Mattia and Brigitte's 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 People 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 couple had met while shooting for the reality show 'Strange Love' and the series had ended with Brigitte seemingly choosing her current husband over then boyfriend Flavor Flav. However, at the time, neither of them openly admitted to a romance, claiming that they shared a "strong friendship."

The Danish beauty, who had started off her career as a model for brands like Giorgio Armani and Gianni Versace, transitioned into acting in the mid-1980s, and went on to star in action flicks such as 'Red Sonja', 'Cobra' and 'Rocky IV'.
