Brigitte Nielsen shared that when she and husband Mattia Dessi got pregnant with her daughter Frida when she was 54, her four older sons said that they thought she was "too old."
"Half the world was saying that when I got pregnant at 55 — including my four older sons," Nielsen admitted of her boys, who range in age from 28 to 39. "But first of all, there’s no such thing as ‘too old,'" she retorted, in a conversation with People magazine. Caroline Thayer is an entertainment writer for Fox News Digital.

"We don’t say that to men who have children in their 60s, 70s, even 80s! … Look at Robert De Niro. He's 79, and he has a 7-month-old." The "Taxi Driver" actor turned 80 in August, just months after welcoming his seventh child with girlfriend Tiffany Chen.
