Brooke Shields, who just finished shooting a movie called ”Rent a Husband,” is expecting a blessed event with her real-life husband. She told the New York Post that she’s pregnant and due to deliver in May. It’ll be the first child for the 37-year-old star and her husband of nearly two years, former ”Spin City” scribe Chris Henchy.

”Getting pregnant was not easy,” the onetime ”Suddenly Susan” star told the Post. ”Chris and I had been hoping for a while, just waiting and wondering and trying.” She said she and Henchy have opted not to learn the child’s sex until it’s born. ”There is no preference for a boy or girl,” she said. ”We just want a healthy baby.”

Shields was previously married to Andre Agassi, who has since married fellow tennis star Steffi Graf and fathered a son by her.
