Brooke Shields is considering boosting her brood via adoption, because her husband isn't interested in adding another child to their family.
Shields and screenwriter Chris Henchy have two daughters, Rowan and Grier, and the actress is desperate to be a mother for a third time.
She tells Eonline.com, "I would die for one (baby). Unfortunately, my husband is not as amenable. So I either have to trick him or lie to him to get knocked up.
"He said to me the other day, 'I'm beginning to think that if I don't give this to you, you'll do it on your own.' It's like, 'Don't test me. I'm very independent.' But I'm older so my eggs probably need a chisel.
"Maybe I should wait and then adopt. We have a lovely home and life and I want to be able to share it with a big family. But maybe it's supposed to be done in a different way, an altruistic way."
