Brooke Shields got emotional in a heartfelt Instagram post after dropping off her 18-year-old daughter to begin her freshman year of college.
The 56-year-old “Suddenly Susan” actress took to social media to share a collection of photos that showed the big move-in day as she and her husband Chris Henchy dropped off their daughter Rowan on the campus before doing the very emotional drive home to New York.
“My unique and amazing little girl is spreading her wings,” Shields captioned the post. “I love you so much. We are so proud of you. It was the saddest ride I have ever had to take. But my baby IS BEGINNING one of the most important adventures of her life to date… NOW ! “
Shields clearly wasn’t kidding that the drive home was difficult for her. The latest video in her article’s collection showed her filming the ride before briefly turning the camera to herself, revealing that she had clearly been crying.

However, she was all smiles in the previous post as she showed up with Rowan kissing in what appears to be her new dorm as well as some college campus snaps and videos.
Shields shares Rowan and her 15-year-old daughter, Grier, with her screenwriter husband, whom she married in 2001. The family’s big move-in day comes just months after Shields took to Instagram to score an equally important milestone in Rowan’s life – his high school graduation. The Golden Globe-nominated actress shared a few images from the event, including seeing her daughter in a white dress and accepting her degree. She also performed a cover of Ed Sheeran’s “Photograph” on guitar at the event.
