Her father had English, French, Irish, and Italian ancestry, while her mother was of English, German, Scotch-Irish, and Welsh lineage.

Following her divorce from Agassi, she married television writer Chris Henchy in 2001, after they had met through mutual friends in 1999. The couple welcomed their first daughter, Rowan Francis Henchy, after two years of marriage, and later in 2006, Shields gave birth to their second daughter, Grier Hammond Henchy.
The relationship and marriage didn't work out for either Brooke or her parents; her parents also were divorced when Shields was five months old. Speaking about Brooke's siblings, she has two stepbrothers; Alexandar Shields and Francis Alexandar, and three half-sisters; Christina Shields, Marina Shields, and Olympia Shields.
However, there's not much information about her siblings. Due to Brooke Shields' extreme privacy about her personal life, there aren't many details about her sisters.
Recently, the 57-year-old actress appeared on The Drew Barrymore Show, where she opened up about her negative interview experiences as a child and how Barbara Walters put Brooke in an awkward situation during an interview when Brooke was still a minor 41 years ago. Shields has not been able to forget about the interview since then.
When Walters instructed Brooke to stand up for the interview, she was asked about her measurements. Walters then compared Brooke to a teen idol, which Brooke didn't enjoy at all, but she went up with it and did what she was told. Brooke stated,
She asked me what my measurements were and asked me to stand up and I stood up, and she was like comparing herself to this little girl. And I thought, ‘This isn’t right. I don’t understand what this is.'
However, Brooke acted appropriately and with good judgment and smiled, but Brooke claimed that she felt used in numerous ways. Even Brooke once said that her conversation with Walters was criminal, not journalism.
