The actress and her husband Chris Henchy welcomed daughter Rowan into the world in 2003, after numerous attempts at conceiving through in vitro fertilization.
But the depression which struck Shields after the difficult birth led to her initially regretting her new status as a mother and relying on drugs to help her through her condition.
But since realizing she loves being a parent, Shields is hoping to conceive baby number two.
She says, "I'm weaning off of the medication that I'm on because I wanna have another baby. I feel so much more so because I know I will have a C-section and I will not be in labor for 24 hours.
"I know that there is a certain medication that can help me regulate my hormones within the third trimester that's safe for breast-feeding. I will be ready to at least have my head in order so that the rest of me can follow suit and I can enjoy.
"Now I can't stand moments away from my daughter and I'm so thankful."
