This will be the first child for Mattia while Brigitte will be the mother of five. The Surreal Life star has Julian, 34, Killian, 28, Douglas, 25, and Raoul, 23, from her previous marriages.

She was previously married to Kasper Winding (1983-1984), Sylvester Stallone (1985-1987), Sebastian Copeland (1990-1992), Raoul Meyer (1993-2005).

Back in 2011, while talking to The Guardian, Brigitte admitted that she wanted to have one more baby.

She said,

I would love to because of all the things I have learned. It would be like starting all over again. But am I too old? I’m young at heart and I would be different this time around. Mattia and I have discussed it, but I don’t know how likely it is. And to interfere with things just because I feel as if I could give more to a child then I did when I was 20 — is that too selfish? I don’t know.

The couple have been married since 2006. They started dating after Brigitte's split from Flavor Flav. The former couple had started a relationship after meeting in 2004 on VH1’s The Surreal Life.
