Brigitte Nielsen’s Baby: Is Pregnancy Over 50 a Good Idea?

Brigitte Nielsen Pregnant: Is Pregnancy Over 50 a Good Idea? | NextTribe

Did you catch the news that Brigitte Nielsen—who starred in a string of movies back in the day like Red Sonja, Rocky IV, and Beverly Hills Cop II —is expecting her fifth child…at age 54?

We’re growing accustomed to older moms, with plenty of 40-something famous faces in the news with their bambinos, and Janet Jackson having her son at age 50. Nielsen, who’s married to Mattia Dessi, age 39, seems to be setting a new record among celebs showing that pregnancy may not have an age limit. While Nielsen has spoken before about perhaps giving IVF a try, however, she’s been mum (see what we did there?) about whether this pregnancy involved any medical intervention.

We’re saying congrats to Nielsen, but enough about us. We know you are having a reaction right now to the thought of a 54-year-old woman about to give birth. Is it, Wow, what a lucky woman? Or perhaps, Not something I’d do, but this is good news; I guess 50 really is the new 30? Or maybe what’s running through your head is, OMG, what is she thinking?!, or perhaps, No way should a woman that age be doing this!

But whatever it is we’d love to hear from Brigitte’s contemporaries. Tell us in the comments below.

Best Beauty Habits at Midlife: What's Working for Our Tribe | NextTribe

The (Next)Tribe Has Spoken: Here are the Beauty Habits That are Working For Us at Midlife

We asked and the tribe has spoken—and you had some pretty enlightening things to say about what beauty tips are (and aren’t) working for you now. In a survey we posted a couple weeks ago, you loyal readers shared your best beauty habits and other intel—from how many products you’re using to what celebs you look up to as beauty icons (Helen Mirren, Cindy Gallop, Diane Keaton, Jane Fonda and Helen Mirren—did we mention Helen Mirren?).

A big take-away? We’re not spending a huge amount of time on beauty. About 46 percent of you responded you spend 30 total minutes a day on grooming. And that’s the whole shebang: Combined makeup, hair, skincare for morning and night on a routine day. And while 46 percent of us claim to spend more time on beauty than 20 years ago, some (12 percent, to be exact) are doing less.
