The actress has been with her current husband Mattia Dessi, 39, since 2005. This will be their first child together.
The actress has been married five times, and is already the mother to four children: 34-year-old Julian Winding, 28-year-old Killian Gastineau, 25-year-old Douglas Meyer, and 23-year-old Raoul Meyer Jr.
Some Instagram users have expressed skepticism over whether her pregnancy was a natural process, insisting Brigitte instead reached into her collection of frozen eggs.
“How is this possible? Is the baby gon come out good?” One Instagram user responded to Brigitte’s post. Well if there’s one thing we’re hoping for, it’s that the baby gon come out better than your grasp of English.
Though Brigitte’s pregnancy came as a surprise to many due to her mature age, she isn’t the first celebrity of her age group to announce a shock pregnancy.
Eva Longoria is nine months pregnant at the age of 43, and 48-year-old Rachel Weisz announced she was expecting a child with husband Daniel Craig just last month.
So. Many. Babies.
