Brigitte Nielsen has welcomed her fifth child — and first daughter! — at 54, PEOPLE reports.
On Friday, the actress and her husband Mattia Dessi welcomed their daughter Frida in Los Angeles. 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 proud parents tell PEOPLE exclusively. “It’s been a long road, and so worth it. We’ve never been more in love.”
The star of Red Sonja and Beverly Hills Cop II — who has been married five times — is already mom to her four sons: Raoul Meyer Jr., 23, Douglas Meyer, 25, Killian Gastineau, 28, and Julian Winding, 34.
Nielsen announced her fifth pregnancy on Instagram and Twitter in late May, showing her baby bump in a curve-hugging gray dress.
“Family getting larger #me #family #brigittenielsen #babybump,” Nielsen, who wed 39-year-old husband Mattia Dessi in 2006, captioned her photo. The Danish-Italian model also shared another bump picture, writing, “Happy time positive vibes.”
The star previously opened up about wanting to have more kids in August 2008.
“The children have kept me going. After I do Playboy, we want to try IVF. It’s asking a lot, but if it’s possible, it would make our package complete,” Nielsen told Hello! magazine.
