When Brigitte broke the news that she was expecting, she debuted a very well-developed baby bump but did not reveal how far along in her pregnancy she was.
Less than a month later, the actress has given birth to a baby girl and confirmed the news with People magazine.
Brigitte gave birth on Friday 22 June, to a tiny little girl who weighed just 5lbs and 9oz. Choosing their daughter’s name was easy as they went for something inspired by the day she was born – Frida!
Speaking about her newest arrival, which comes 23 years after she last gave birth, Brigitte said: ‘It’s been a long road, and so worth it. We’ve never been more in love.’
She said: ‘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’.
Frida has four big brothers who are likely to be excited to meet their only sister. Brigitte has a 34-year-old son called Julian from her marriage to Kasper Winding and another son, 28-year-old Killian, with her ex-fiancé Mark Gastineau.
The mum-of-five also had two sons with her ex-husband Raoul Meyer, 25-year-old Douglas and 23-year-old Raoul.
Although Brigitte and Mattia are yet to post a picture of their daughter, fans of the couple have already flooded their social media pages with messages of congratulations on a recent selfie.
One person wrote: ‘Congrats beautiful!!!! So happy for you!!!!’.
Another said: ‘Congrats on the baby girl!! @realbrigittenielsen’.
A third commented: ‘WOW! I am amazed at the desire to have a baby at this age. This must be a testament to good health and wellness. Congratulations on your addition! You are STILL such an amazing woman. #Badass’.
