NEW TREND: WOMEN PREGNANT IN THEIR 50s

More women are getting pregnant in their fifties.

In 2013, 13 babies were born each week to moms age 50 and older, according to parenting.com.

And according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, births by women between the ages of 50 and 54 increased by more than 165 percent from 2000 to 2013.

Most women who get pregnant at age 50 do so with the help of in vitro fertilization. 

And given that the average age for menopause is 51, older moms typically use donor eggs of younger women in order to conceive.

She has also dated Flavor Flav (2003 – 2005), Mark Gastineau (1988 – 1990), Tony Scott (1987), Kelly Sahnger (1987 – 1988) and Arnold Schwarzenegger (1984 – 1985). And she was linked to Vanilla Ice, Mick Hucknall and Sean Penn. 

She and Mattia often look cuddly at events making it seem as if they are doing very well.

The pregnancy comes as a shock to fans that have not seen a hint of a baby bump in the past. She has been skillful at hiding her midsection as she has gone out to lunch at places like Joan’s On Third in West Hollywood in the past several months. 

In the new images, she appears to be over eight months along.

The Danish beauty was seen sitting on a wicker sofa with a red and yellow pillow as she looked off in the distance in her first snapshot.

Nielsen had on a white dress that came above the knee and a beige cardigan with bare feet showing a nice white pedicure.

Her hair was its signature short style and she had on pretty makeup. 

In her second image, her bump is on full display as her dog looks up at her from the corner of the image.

Next came a romance with Flav and a stint on his show Flavor of Love then came Britain’s Celebrity Big Brother; she starred with her former mother-in-law, Jackie Stallone.

She earned a following from VH1’s The Surreal Life: Fame Games then Celebrity Rehab with Dr Drew.
