  • Trivia

    • After the birth of her daughter, Rowan Francis, Brooke suffered a severe case of postpartum depression. She kept her battle with this condition until 2005, when she spoke to several magazines and appeared on the "The Oprah Winfrey Show". On the show, Brooke admitted to bouts of depression, thoughts of suicide and even disturbing thoughts concerning the welfare of her child. There are several theories as to the cause of the illness ranging from the traumatic labor and delivery of her child, to the death of her father three weeks earlier as well as the stress from in vitro fertilization.
