"I was always like, 'I want to do it until there are no embryos left,' somebody has to win the lottery," she had told The Guardian.

Her tenacity had finally paid off. At the age of 54-years-old Brigitte gave birth to her beautiful daughter Frida.

She is forever thankful for her family, but she says she can envision how her daughter may look at her in the coming years. "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,'" she continued to The Guardian.

Brigitte also opened up about how she has been able to stay connected with her four sons who live in Italy throughout the pandemic. "My sons are doing amazingly well… I'm very proud of them."

The star added: "I speak to them every day, there's Skype, I don't know what I would have done without it."
