Brooke Shields Shares a Video of Herself Crying and It’s for the Most Relatable Reason Ever

“So I just waved my daughter goodbye again. I thought it would be easier a second time,” Shields admitted, saying that, as it “turns out the second time is NOT the charm when it comes to your baby going off to college.”

Shields admitted that her daughter has been away from her all summer. So she didn’t get a lot of time with her baby girl before she was off on her own again.

“I’m not making the drive with her, she’s driving with her dad. But she’s taking my car, it was my graduation present car. So she’s going to be driving that. And I said it was just too painful. I don’t think I could do the driving away from campus again.”

Shields continued by saying, “So if there is anyone else going through this, we are all in it together. […] Oh, it’s so hard! I miss her already.”

However, Shields eventually conceded that this is ultimately what you want as a parent. “You raise them to leave you.”

Several other parents took to the comments section of Shields’ video to let the actress know she’s not alone. Some even shared the parenting experience that left them in the most tears.

“Wait till she gets married. I damn near lost it because she’s definitely not coming back,” one commenter added.

“You will always have moments of being homesick for your kids. I think that means you are a good Mom. Hang in there…it does get easier,” another commenter offered.

“I sent my baby boy off to bootcamp. No contact for 13 weeks. Send help I’m not ok,” another mama wrote.
