The rumors have been swirling since Brooke Shields talked openly with Extra about the possibility of adding to her family through adoption and now the actress says it is still a viable option! At an award ceremony — where Brooke was an honoree — held by the National Breast Cancer Coalition, the 43-year-old spoke with ET about the speculated reports that she will be adopting a baby, laughing that "I say something and people are running with it."
In reality, Brooke shares that her thoughts on adoption stem from her getting older and being "clinically aware that it gets harder and harder" to conceive, more so for the Lipstick Jungle star who has "already had [fertility] problems" in the past. Admitting that she would be "very sad to think that my family was over right now," Brooke goes on to share her plans for any future additions to her brood.
"I said I would be very open to it and if we got to that point, we would be really blessed if we could do that. And we would do it in America."
Brooke has daughters Rowan Frances, 5, and Grier Hammond, 2 ½, with husband Chris Henchy.
