Brooke Shields talks about motherhood

Brooke Shields, 42, who is currently working on new TV series Lipstick Jungle, talked to Parade magazine about her family and having children. Brooke and her husband Chris Henchy, 43, have daughters Rowan Francis, 4 ½, and Grier Hammond, 21 months. She has discussed her fertility issues and postpartum depression in her book Down Came The Rain.

There was a period when I was working, but I couldn’t get pregnant, and I felt like a complete failure. Then, all of a sudden, I got pregnant, and I was scared that I was never going to work again. Sometimes I get mad at myself for wanting as much as I do. I don’t want to compromise, but I think, ‘God, it could be so much simpler.’ And yet, that’s not the way I’m made.

Now, the actress is enjoying the way her life is going.

I’m really proud of my kids, I’m excited about my job, and my marriage is not suffering. It’s not easy, but it’s not falling apart. This is the first time in my life that everything is exactly the way I want it to be.
