Actress Brooke Shields is planning to get pregnant again, despite suffering from severe postpartum depression which drove her to the brink of suicide.

The 39-year-old has a painful history when it comes to conceiving too - she has miscarried once and underwent many fertility treatments before becoming a mother two years ago (MAY03).

But all of that isn't stopping her and husband Chris Henchy from trying for a second child - a brother or sister for their daughter ROWAN.

Shields says, "I really want Rowan to have a sibling... If I don't spread this love around a little, it could be difficult for her later in life.

"I'm not in the least afraid. I'm armed with so much knowledge now. I know the worst can happen and I'm prepared for it."
