What did Brooke name the baby? Grier Hammond Henchy. The baby, who was born in Los Angeles, weighed in at 7 lbs. 20 oz.
Just last month, the couple celebrated the impending birth of their second child at a Moroccan-themed baby shower hosted by actor Steven Weber and his wife, Juliette Hohnen, at their L.A. home.
“Brooke was simply glowing all evening,” her friend, event planner Jo Gartin, who organized the fete, told PEOPLE.
Of her second go-around as an expectant mom, Shields told PEOPLE, “This pregnancy has been a lot easier.”
The actress suffered from postpartum depression after the birth of her first child. She wrote a book on the subject, Down Came the Rain: My Journey Through Postpartum Depression, and has spoken out about her use of antidepressants.
Last year she was famously criticized by Tom Cruise, who as a Scientologist opposes psychiatry and prescription medication to battle depression.
Let’s hope she has it easier this time around, so she doesn’t have to deal with the comments from Ms. Cruise. Do you think that Brooke and her husband kept the placenta to give to Tom and Katie as a gift once their little one is born?
