Brooke Shields revealed to fans on Instagram that she broke her femur.

Model and actress Brooke Shields, 55, shared the news on her Instagram on Sunday that she broke her femur. While she didn't offer any explanation as to how she broke it, she posted a super inspiring video of herself taking some slow and steady steps with the help of crutches.
"Broke my femur. Beginning to mend. No matter what your challenge is, make a positive choice, for yourself, to move forward. #BeginningisNow," she captioned the video.
In the video, Brooke appears to be in a hospital hallway taking a few slow steps with her crutches while wearing a hospital gown and socks.
"Alright so crutches go first, then bad boy (the leg with her broken femur) and the good boy (her healthy leg)," a man says to Brooke as she slowly walks with her crutches.
"Bad boy and good boy. And there's only 20 percent weight...oh I dragged it, sorry, I dragged it," says Brooke as she practices taking some steps. "One and two, and the goal is to bend your leg each time like a little bit just so you're not dragging it and hitching up your hip, correct?"
She looks strong and determined as she takes each step. And her friends and followers are sending her lots of love and supportive messages.
Actress Glenn Close commented, "Brooke! So sorry! Courage...it's in your blood. Sending love, Glenn."
And like a true friend, actress Sharon Stone asked her if she can bring her food.
"Oh crap honey I'm so sorry, let me know how you're doing. R u home out west? I can bring food," she wrote.
Other fans wrote they were sending her prayers and were inspired by her attitude.
"Oh no! Prayers for a quick recovery!" one wrote. And another commented, "Your attitude is great and will help you heal! Best wishes."
We are wishing you a speedy and healthy recovery, Brooke!
