Brigitte shares Frida with her husband Mattia Dessi. The little girl is the star's fifth child, and the couple's long-awaited baby. She opened up about their journey in an interview with The Guardian shortly after Frida's arrival.

Frida and Mattia had endured a decade of IVF attempts and been told they only had a 2.5 per cent chance of success.

However, Brigitte gave birth at the age of 54, and she couldn't have been happier. "I was always like, 'I want to do it until there are no embryos left,' Somebody has to win the lottery," she said.

Until 27 weeks, Brigitte kept her pregnancy a secret, even from her own mother.

On becoming a mother later in life, Brigitte said of her daughter: "As of Frida, she'll say 'mom, you're an old hag,' and I'll say: 'Frida, I'm the best mom you ever had.'"

Frida celebrated her second birthday in June, which coincided with Father's Day.

To mark the special occasion, the doting mum shared a sweet picture of the birthday girl sitting at a Minnie Mouse-themed table, dressed in Minnie ears, while admiring a Disney-inspired cake.

"My little mouse. Happy second birthday, you've brightened my life since the day you born. Happy #fathersday to my adorable hubby too," Brigitte wrote in the caption.
