Less than two months after giving birth, actress Brigitte Nielsen is ready to flaunt her post-baby body!
The 55-year-old and her husband Mattia Dessì, 39, welcomed their little girl Frida into the world on June 22, making the blonde beauty now a mother of five.
On Wednesday, Brigitte shared a series of snaps of her trim post-baby body on Instagram, sparking a huge reaction from fans. In the snaps, Brigitte shows off her figure in an all-white, body-hugging ensemble of cropped pants, a top and a jacket, topping off her look with a pair of earrings, sunglasses and silver sneakers.
Captioning the photo, she wrote: “I’m getting there… #me #brigittenielsen #afterbabybody.”
Fans were quick to compliment the blonde beauty, with one writing: “You look fabulous good on you”.
Another added: “You are already there dear!! You are looking gorgeous!!” And a third wrote: “Such an inspiration for older women to do the baby thing, man or no man.”
Although thrilled at becoming a mum again, in an interview with People magazine last month, Brigitte confessed that the thought of people mistaking her for the grandmother of the beautiful baby when its time for her to go to school does worry her.
While having another child was something the model fought hard for, going through 10 years of in-vitro fertilisation treatment, she knows some might think she is too old. But that hasn’t stopped her urging other women not to give up on their hopes of becoming a becoming a mother later in life.
She said: “Some women think, ‘oh my God, I’m too old’. Well, yeah, I can understand people saying, ‘how dare she? But how many men have their first kids in their 60s and 70s and they never doubt it?
“Do I understand that [people] are a bit skeptical? Yes, I understand. I also totally respect the fact that not everybody likes it and agrees with it, but it is my life.”
The actress isn’t the only well-known face to have welcomed another addition into their family well into their 60s and 70s, including actor Rowan Atkinson, who became a father again at 62 and Rolling stones legend Ronnie Wood who was 68-years-old when he welcomed twin baby girls into the world.
In fact more women are choosing to wait until later in life to fall pregnant with the average age continuing to increase as the years go by. According to a report by the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare, the average age of women who gave birth in 2015 was 30.3, compared to 29.7 in 2005.
