Model and actress Brigitte Nielsen married her fifth husband, Mattia Dessi, on Saturday July 8th, 2006.
Age difference couldn't stop them from pronouncing their love. It wouldn't send them apart somehow.
Thus the 43-year-old model and actress Brigitte Nielsen and her 28-year-old beau Mattia Dessi changed vows Saturday July 8th, 2006 at the five-star Radisson SAS Golden Sands Resort & Spa in Malta.
Nielsen and Dessi, a former model from Italy, actually had held a wedding ceremony in the Dominican Republic on Feb. 21, 2005. But since Nielsen had not finished divorcing her fourth husband, former race-car driver Raoul Meyer, the nuptials were considered as not legal.
Last year's ceremony "was more like an official engagement," Nielsen's longtime friend and manager, Luigi Balduini, told People while said further "They put it on the news that it was a marriage, but it was an engagement, because she was still legally married." This time though, it's the real deal. Nielsen "is pretty excited," Balduini tells the publication "She is like a little child. She is pretty happy."
