Brooke Shields wants another baby

09/26/2005 at 03:00 PM ET

Although she suffered from severe postpartum depression with the birth of her daughter, Rowan, 2, actress Brooke Shields reportedly still wants to have another child… and soon.

"She can’t wait to be pregnant again, " a source said, "Though Brooke’s struggles with IVF and postpartum depression were traumatizing, in the end, she thinks it was all worth it and couldn’t love her daughter more."

Brooke has said the same thing herself.  "I absolutely want more children, " the actress has said. "I may not feel anything after the second baby, or I may plummet even further…but I’m prepared."

Brooke and her husband, Chris Henchy, are supposedly planning to use in vitro fertilization to conceive their second child and Brooke will take anti-depressants in her third trimester.

Despite her difficulties, I am glad to hear she is hopeful for more children. She is gorgeous as well as her daughter. I cannot wait to see her next creation!
