Brigitte has five children and she shares her youngest with Mattia 

Brigitte confessed: "My current husband, Mattia Dessi, is 15 years younger than me and I’m really happy now. He's probably more mature than me mentally, but physically we're not the same and I do wonder if he will love me when I am 60 and he is 45."

They have a two-year-old daughter, Frida, together and Brigitte is also a mum to four other children. 

The star had been trying IVF for a decade with several failed attempts. She and Mattia continued trying for a child, despite doctors telling her she only had a 2.5 per cent chance of success.  

She gave birth to her little girl at the age of 54.
