Brigitte Nielsen has given birth to her fifth child at age 54, the actress announced.

The Danish "Red Sonja" star and her 39-year-old husband, former model Mattia Dessi, welcomed daughter Frida, who weighed 5 pounds, 9 ounces, this past Friday, the couple said in a statement to People.

“We are overjoyed to welcome our beautiful daughter into our lives," the pair said. “It's been a long road, and so worth it."

Frida is Nielsen’s first daughter and her first child with Dessi, her fifth husband, who she married in 2006.

Nielsen has four adult sons from previous marriages.

The actress, model and reality star announced her pregnancy last month by sharing a photo of herself holding her stomach on Instagram and Twitter. 

“Family getting larger,” she wrote.
