Brooke Shields Speaks Out On Post-Partum Depression

Brooke Shields Speaks Out On Post-Partum Depression

Brooke Shields was photographed at the Hope for Depression Research Foundation annual seminar and luncheon in New York City on Monday (November 16). The 44-year-old mother of two girls – Rowan, 6, and Grier, 3 – was awarded the inaugural ‘Hope’ award for depression advocacy from the foundation.

During the seminar, Brooke expressed the true depths of her suffering with post-partum depression. “We think and we feel that we should just be able to handle it on our own.” People reports that Brooke went on to say, “I’ve always been strong enough to get through every single difficult situation in my life. I grew up in an addictive household. My mother [Teri] had acute alcoholism. It’s in my blood. I was never going to be the one to succumb to it.”

Brooke, who suffered a miscarriage and seven in-vitro fertilization attempts, gave birth to daughter Rowan in 2003 with her husband, TV writer Chris Henchy.

I finally had a healthy beautiful baby girl and I couldn’t look at her,” she said of the depression she felt after having her first child. “I couldn’t hold her and I couldn’t sing to her and I couldn’t smile at her … All I wanted to do was disappear and die.”

    Jerry O’Connell’s “Diabolical” Twin

    Jerry O'Connell's "Diabolical" Twin

    Stay-at-home-dad Jerry O’Connell reports that his 10-month-old twin daughters Dolly and Charlie have very different personalities.

    “One is good with anything, you put her down, she’s cool with it,” the former Crossing Jordan star says. “One is just a little more demanding, and wants her way. If you have something shiny near you, she wants it and if you don’t give it to her she gets very upset. I shouldn’t say which, but one is a little more diabolical than the other one, but I like that, it shows spunk.”

    With Jerry heading to law school and mom Rebecca Romijn back at work, time is a precious commodity for the couple. Jerry says that they still manage to squeeze in the odd date night, though.

    “We throw the kids at their grandparents and then we’ll take off for a couple of hours and go out to dinner. Sounds pretty tame, but when you have kids, you can’t fly off to Bora Bora for a weekend. Even a quiet dinner at Chili’s away from the kids is a relief.”

    It was recently reported that Jerry has another new project in the works – his parenting memoir titled Cry, Feed, (Make Love to Wife), Burp is set to hit bookshelves next year.
