The iconic model and actress Brigitte Nielsen became a mother for the fifth time in 2018 at age 55.
Giving birth to her only daughter, Frida, in 2018, Nielsen says she was constantly told she was too old to be a mother.

“We don’t say that to men who have children who are 60, 70 or even 80 years old! … Look at Robert De Niro. He’s 79 years old and has a 7-month-old baby.” The “Taxi Driver” actor turned 80 in August, just months after welcoming his seventh child with his girlfriend Tiffany Chen.
Nielsen, now 60, insists that her age does not prevent her from being a mother. “When she was a younger mother, she was often juggling being single, traveling on a plane, or being on a movie set. Now Frida comes first,” she shared.
“You know how kids say grandmas are the best? I feel like I have that mentality and that emotion. I have the patience and that extra love to give now, and I think it’s because I’m a grandma’s age.”
