Brigitte Nielsen and husband Mattia Dessi are celebrating his first Father’s Day as a dad-to-be!

The pregnant 54-year-old model and actress shared a new photo of the couple cradling her baby bump to celebrate the holiday on Sunday. “You’ll be a great papà Ti amo #fathersday #daddy #love #family,” Nielsen captioned the selfie of her and Dessi, 39, whom she wed in 2006.

Her picture comes two weeks after Nielsen announced her fifth pregnancy in May, when she debuted her baby bump in a curve-hugging gray dress. “Family getting larger #me #family #brigittenielsen #babybump,” she captioned the photo.

Nielsen, who has been married five times, is already mom to four sons: Raoul Meyer Jr., 23, Douglas Meyer, 25, Killian Gastineau, 28, and Julian Winding, 34.

The Beverly Hills Cop II actress also revealed her years-long battle with alcohol addiction and consequent rehab stay, including how it has affected her parenting.

“I’ve been a bad mum at times — when you take the bottle over your kids, you’re a bad mum,” she said. “But I love them and there has always been a close bond.”

Added Nielsen, “I’ve been affectionate, caring. It’s unfortunate they’ve seen me in a bad way. But kids are great, they’re the most unconditional, forgiving people.”
