Brooke Shields talks about balancing work and family


Actress, author, wife and mom Brooke Shields can’t have much free time on her hands these days. With her return to the small screen in NBC’s new show Lipstick Jungle, the 42-year-old is finding herself once again juggling career and family like so many other working moms. Brooke says that while she believes we can do it all, we can’t do it all perfectly — and that’s okay.

I think that women can have so much more than they realize.  I feel very lucky that I’ve had the opportunity to try to grasp as much as I can in my life. So, I do have a family, and I do have a husband, and I do have a career. And not at one time do I feel that I’m 100 percent in any one [of them]. That means that every day it’s a navigation.

Brooke and her husband Chris Henchy have two daughters — Rowan Francis, 4 ½, and Grier Hammond, 21-months.
