Shields and Holmes forge an unlikely friendship

Filed under: Development/Milestones: Babies, Celeb Kids, Celeb Parents, Media

Despite any difference between Brooke Shields and Tom Cruise, it appears that Shields and Katie Holmes have struck up a friendship. The two women gave birth to their babies on the same day and at the same hospital.

When asked about the unlikely bond Shields replied, "Life is really short, and when you see these babies...I think you never know how life is going to bring people together, and it can be absurd and it can be interesting."

I think it is wonderful that Brooke Shields was able to rise above Tom Cruise's insensitive remarks about her postpartum depression and look beyond his words. By extending a friendship to Katie Holmes she is showing that she has grace and wisdom, both traits that her children will someday admire.
