Brigitte Nielsen shocked her fans when she posted a picture on Instagram showing the actress with a huge baby bump. She simply conveyed in the caption that her family is growing. At 54 years old, this will be Brigitte Nielsen's fifth child, but it might be like starting all over again for Nielsen as her four sons are well into adulthood, and all over 20 years old.

The days of 'foofie' with his clock

Nielsen, who is often seen as a woman who marches to the beat of her own drum, shocked fans several years ago when she hooked up with rapper Flavor Flav for a sitcom all about their love.

She adoringly called him "foofie" and he walked around with a clock around his neck.

Flav and Nielsen were swept into a whirlwind romance while appearing on "Surreal Life" and "Strange Love." According to Vibe, that relationship lasted "quite some time." The couple was the epitome of strange bedfellows, but Flavor Flav was adamant that the relationship they had was "real."

Into the arms of husband number five

Apparently, it wasn't "real" enough to last a lifetime as Nielsen married Mattia Dessi, who was the producer of their show, "Strange Love." According to Vibe, it was her constant fighting with Flav that led her into the arms of Dessi.

Rocky's lady

Dessi, who is 39 today, appears as a proud papa-to-be in the recent pictures posted online.

The two were seen out having lunch together recently. Aside from her relationship with Flavor Flav, Nielsen was once married to Sylvester Stallone. At 6-feet-1-inch tall, Nielsen usually towers over her men, as seen in many of the photos online from her past relationships.

Brigitte stands 6-foot-1-inch tall

Sylvester Stallone is 5-foot-10-inches tall and when Brigitte wore heels, the two of them standing side by side seemed to dwarf Stallone.

Dessi also appears shorter than the Danish-Italian actress when the two are pictured standing together.

The couple was married in Malta, Italy in 2006. Nielsen's four sons from her previous relationships are Raoul Meyer Jr., 23, Douglas Meyer, 25, Killian Gastineau, 28, and Julian Winding, 34, according to People Magazine. Nielsen's long-time friend and manager, Luigi Balduini, said that Nielsen is "pretty excited" over the baby on the way.

Model and actress

Nielsen has enjoyed decades of acting in movies like "Rocky IV," "Cobra," "Red Sonja," and "Beverly Hills Cop II." She transitioned over to acting from her modeling career, where she posed for some of the big name designers like Giorgio Armani and Gianni Versace.

As People reports, she's had five husbands and now she is on her fifth child or "celebrating baby number five with husband number five!"
