Brigitte’s age-gap fam­ily out­ing

New mum Brigitte Nielsen steps out with her baby girl and grown-up son

Closer (UK) - - Inside This Issue - By Daisy Mclure

She was snapped S shop­ping in Los An­ge­les last week with her four­month-old baby Frida, hus­band Mat­tia Dessì, 39, and 25-yearold son Dou­glas in tow – and in­sid­ers say Brigitte Nielsen is en­joy­ing ev­ery mo­ment of moth­er­hood at the age of 55.

The ac­tress shocked fans when she an­nounced she was ex­pect­ing her fifth child – her first with toy­boy hus­band of 12 years, Mat­tia – ear­lier this year.

And pals say that, de­spite ini­tial con­cerns she’d strug­gle with a new­born in her late fifties, she’s thriv­ing.

A source re­veals, “Brigitte is lov­ing moth­er­hood and says that while she’s more than 30 years older than she was the first time around, she feels more re­laxed and chilled out. It’s ex­haust­ing, but Mat­tia is in­cred­i­bly hand­son, so he helps enor­mously.”

Dou­glas – who was seen ten­derly cradling his new­born sis­ter – is one of two sons Brigitte had with fourth hus­band Raoul Meyer, along

with Raoul Meyer Jr, 23.

The Dan­ish star – who was pre­vi­ously mar­ried to Sylvester Stal­lone – is also mum to Ju­lian Wind­ing, 34, with first hus­band Kasper Wind­ing, and Kil­lian Gastineau, 28, her son with ex-fi­ancé and for­mer NFL star Mark Gastineau. She re­cently opened up about the crit­i­cism she re­ceived by be­com­ing a mum again at 54, and re­vealed how she en­dured 14 years of IVF treat­ment to get preg­nant again. She said, “I re­spect that not ev­ery­body likes it and agrees with it, but it’s my life.”

The source adds, “Hav­ing Frida has put the spark back in her and Mat­tia’s mar­riage, and they’re stronger than ever. It’s not been easy, but they wouldn’t change it for the world.”
