The Danish actress and her husband Mattia Dessi welcomed a daughter named Frida on Friday. Frida is Nielsen's first daughter and fifth child.
Nielsen first announced her pregnancy in May in an Instagram post, captioning a photo of herself cradling her baby bump with "family getting larger."
The Danish-Italian actress and former model married Dessi in 2006. She mentioned during a 2011 interview with The Guardian the possibility of having children with Dessi.
"I would love to because of all the things I have learned. It would be like starting all over again. But am I too old? I’m young at heart and I would be different this time around," Nielsen explained at the time. "
Mattia and I have discussed it, but I don’t know how likely it is. And to interfere with things just because I feel as if I could give more to a child then I did when I was 20 — is that too selfish? I don’t know."
Congratulations, Brigitte Nielsen!
