News about Nielsen's pregnancy shocked her friends and colleagues. Nonetheless, they were also happy for the actress. Nielsen's manager, Luigi Balduini revealed that she was very happy and excited about the new addition to her family.
The Cobra actress is already a mom to four sons from previous marriages. She is a mom to sons Raoul Meyer Jr., 23, and Douglas Aaron, 25, from ex-husband Raoul Meyer, to Julian Winding, 34, her child with former spouse Kasper Winding, and son Killian Marcus Gastineau, 28. Nielsen was also married to her Rocky IV costar Sylvester Stallone although they did not have a child together.
Nielsen married the 39-year-old Italian Dessi in 2006 and since then she has been vocal about wanting to expand her brood. She said in a 2008 interview that they have agreed on IVF to help them conceive.
"The children have kept me going. After I do Playboy, we want to try IVF. It's asking a lot, but if it's possible, it would make our package complete," Nielsen said.
In the same interview, the actress opened up about how her children have shown compassion during the times that she has been in and out of rehab. Nielsen's battle with alcohol addiction has affected her parenting but the kids forgave her for being a "bad mum at times."
