The Red Sonja star also said in an exclusive interview with People that it has been a 'long and arduous journey,' but that both she and husband Mattia Dessi are delighted with their tot. 



“We are overjoyed to welcome our beautiful daughter into our lives. It’s been a long road, and so worth it. We’ve never been more in love.”

Nielsen then started dating Mark Gastineau in 1986. They broke off the engagement soon after, but share one son, Killian, who was born in 1989. 


She was also married to Sebastian Copeland from for two years in the early nineties. Nielsen married her fourth husband, Raoul Meyer, in 1993. 

They were together for 12 years, before filing for divorce due to irreconcilable differences. They have two sons together, 25-year-old Douglas Aaron, and 23-year-old Raoul Jr. 

Nielsen landed her first role in 1985 in Red Sonja, alongside Arnold Schwarzenegger. That same year she also appeared in Rocky IV, alongside Stallone.
