Brigitte Nielsen Enjoys Motherhood at 60 after Her 4 Sons Told Her She Was Too Old to Have Her 5th Child

Brigitte Nielsen met her husband, Mattia Dessi, in Switzerland in 2004. Despite their significant age difference – Brigitte was 41, and Mattia was 25 – their love blossomed. Their relationship even played out on VH1’s reality show “Strange Love.”

In 2006, the couple exchanged vows in a lavish ceremony in Malta. Despite facing criticism for marrying a younger man, Brigitte remained steadfast in following her heart.

She emphasized that age was irrelevant in their relationship, highlighting their compatibility and teamwork.

Nearly two decades later, Brigitte and Mattia’s marriage remains strong. Brigitte attributes their enduring relationship to keeping things exciting and respecting each other’s individuality. She advocates for embracing one’s partner as they are, rather than trying to change them.

Now in her 60s, Brigitte dismisses societal pressure to maintain a youthful appearance, expressing contentment with her age. She believes that age should not limit one’s ability to become a parent and rejects ageist criticisms.

Brigitte’s journey to motherhood was challenging, spanning 13 years of attempting IVF treatments. Her efforts were rewarded when she welcomed her daughter, Frida, in 2018, at the age of 54. Despite concerns about her age, Brigitte’s pregnancy was smooth, reflecting her readiness and desire to become a mother again.

As a mother of five, Brigitte acknowledges the skepticism surrounding older mothers but emphasizes that wisdom and experience enhance her parenting.

She encourages women to pursue motherhood if it’s their desire, urging them to explore options like egg freezing.

Brigitte and Mattia cherish their family life in Marbella, Spain, finding joy in their daughter and each other’s company. Despite facing criticism and challenges, Brigitte remains grateful for her life’s journey and the freedom to prioritize her family.
