Report: Brooke Shields Having a Girl

January 24, 2006

NEW YORK (AP) _ Brooke Shields, who is pregnant with her second child, says of her baby due in May: ``It’s a girl!″

``I wasn’t sure I was going to make this public,″ Shields told People magazine in a report Tuesday. ``I’m thrilled for my daughter to have a little friend. Two Tauruses, it’s a huge trick being played on me.″

Shields’ daughter, Rowan, who is 2, was born in May.

The 40-year-old actress has been married to TV writer-producer Chris Henchy since 2001.

Shields chronicled her post-pregnancy experiences in a memoir, ``Down Came the Rain: My Journey Through Postpartum Depression.″ Her outspoken support of antidepressants prompted the criticism of Tom Cruise, a Scientologist who opposes psychiatry and prescription medication to battle depression.

The actress, who began modeling as a toddler, has appeared in films including ``Pretty Baby,″ ``The Blue Lagoon″ and ``Endless Love.″ Her TV sitcom, ``Suddenly Susan,″ ran from 1996-2000.
