Shields said that Rowan "called me from college and was like, 'Mom, let me see what you're wearing,' and 'I'm so proud of you.'"

"And my [other] daughter was just like, do you want me to hold your hand? Do you want me to hold your phone? Do you want me to hold your purse? And I was like 'No thank you, just hold my hand!'"

When it comes to her biggest accomplishments as a mom, Shields points to the end of her documentary.

"That last scene in the movie where they are confident and free. They're confident, they're being listened to, I'm proud of them speaking their mind," she told PEOPLE. "They are young women who are already beginning to find their own agencies. It took me until practically today."

Speaking with PEOPLE earlier this month, the mom of two talked about keeping an open dialogue with her daughters and how they've learned from one another.

"They talk about things differently than we ever did," she said. "Nobody ever asked our opinion. No one was interested in your having an opinion...So to have these opinionated young women, I kind of think 'Wow, this is a different era.'"

Pretty Baby: Brooke Shields will stream on Hulu on April 3.
