Brooke Shields is pregnant -- She and her husband, TV writer Chris Henchy, are expecting their first child in May

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.
