Brooke Shields Reaches Out To Britney

Britney Spears

Brooke Shields is reaching out to Britney Spears, who is currently in rehab.

“I hope she’s fine,” Brooke, 41, tells TV’s Access Hollywood in an interview to air Monday. “I believe she’s going to be fine, and she just needs the support and her kids. She’s their only mom, and she’ll earn that back in her own mind.”

Brooke, who suffered postpartum depression after the birth of Rowan, says that if Britney (mom to Sean Preston, 18 months, and Jayden James, 6 months) is suffering from the condition as some have speculated, “then it really needs to be reckoned with, and it’s very common, and she’ll get through it.”

Brooke, the mother of two daughters, Rowan, 3, and 10-month-old Grier, wrote the book Down Came the Rain: My Journey Through Postpartum Depression about her struggle with postpartum depression.

“If Britney is reading my book,” Brooke adds, “I hope it’s helping her. If it’s not, and she wants to talk to someone, I’m available.”

Brooke, who like Britney has been a public figure since she was a child, says the constant pressure of being in the media spotlight may have contributed to the singer’s trouble. “She is followed every moment of her life, and she’s documented every minute of her life.”

I haven’t read Brooke’s book, but it sounds like a great resource for moms struggling with postpartum depression.

    How nice of Brooke to offer her experience and help to a mother in desperate need of help! What an excellent role model she is for young mothers.

    Britney should take Brooke up on the offer..she could give Britney some really down to earth advice and help her turn her image around. Brooke has always been a class act and hopefully Brit will talk to her and some of that class will rub off.
