No one saw it coming when Danish-born actress Brigitte Nielsen announced her fifth pregnancy at age 54.

Known for her roles in 80s B-grade movies and voluptuous figure, she's managed to make a name for herself and remain in the spotlight after going under the knife for numerous procedures. 

She's probably best known for her breakout role in 1986 movie, Cobra, and for later dating and then marrying her co-star Sylvester Stallone.


Now, 23 years after giving birth to her youngest child she has revealed she is expecting once again in what will be her first child with fifth husband Mattia Dessi, according to Bang Showbiz.

The star announced the news in two separate posts on Instagram this week, which show off her burgeoning baby bump.
