Date February 4, 2020 17:57

Did you know that Brigitte Nielson met and even wed her fifth husband, Mattia Dessi when she was still legally married to Raoul Meyer? The couple first got hitched on February 21, 2005, but their papers were not official due to her marital status. That's why Brigitte and Mattia tied the knot again a year later.

The Danish actress was previously married to four different men:

  • 1983-1984: Kasper Winding + son Julian.
  • 1985-1987: Sylvester Stallone.
  • 1990-1992: Sebastian Copeland.
  • 1993-2005: Raoul Meyer + two sons, Douglas and Raoul.
  • She also had ex-fiancé, Mark Gastineau, who fathered her son, Killian.

Brigitte Nielsen & Mattia Dessi

Brigitte Nielsen and Mattia Dessi have been together for more than a decade. The Creed star instantly fell in love with her fifth husband, though she didn't want to be with anyone as she was passing through the divorce from Raoul Meyer. Yet, it took two months for Dessi to love his now-wife back.

The couple has a 15-year age gap, and it makes Neilsen somewhat 'jealous' and 'possessive' due to her worries he might leave one day.

He's 15 years younger than me and delicious. I'm so jealous; I'm madly possessive ... It's weird because in my entire life till now, I've never been the jealous type. I don't recognize myself ... Some women are happy to grow old and look old. That's fine for them. I'm not — my husband's 15 years younger, for God's sake.

Despite Brigitte Nielsen's divorces, she believed in love when she met Mattia Dessi. She considers him more mature mentally (not physically) than she is. It makes the actress concerned whether he'll stay with her when she's 60.

My current husband, Mattia Dessi, is 15 years younger than me, and I'm really happy now. He's probably more mature than me mentally, but physically we're not the same, and I do wonder if he will love me when I am 60 and he is 45.

Nielsen gave birth to her fifth child to her fifth husband at the age of 54. Although the actress admitted giving birth to a baby made her feel younger, the pregnancy was more complicated than before due to her 'advanced maternal age.'

After undergoing IVF treatment for more than 10 years, Brigitte welcomed the only daughter, Frida, on June 22, 2018.

It is such a long road. What I want women to know is that everything is possible, but you have to be realistic.

A marriage between an adult woman and a younger man is becoming more and more common nowadays. Brigitte Neilsen and Mattia Dessi admitted their relationship was simple and normal, and their age difference had never been an obstacle to loving each other. Besides, their baby girl unites them even more, as it's the first daughter for the actress and the first child to her fifth husband. How adorable!
