A rep for the actress did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Nielsen's Instagram followers flooded her comments section with messages of congratulations - and surprise.

"Congrats you have given hope to a lot of women that believed it couldn't be done. Well you have proven that it can," wrote one.

"Wow! How's that possible??" asked another.

"Can you open up discussion on what precautions if any you took did you have to check anything as I think you are inspiration to woman over 40 who think it's too late," said another.
