When Katie Holmes asked Brooke Shields to bring “something old” for her wedding, Shields was very confused, since she was not actually offering to provide anything for the event. Holmes explained that she had the items to represent borrowed and blue, but still needed old.
“And I was like, ‘Okay, I’ll get back to you on that,’” Shields told People. She laughed and stated how she should have delivered her “something old” joke better. After that conversation, the “Suddenly Susan” actor started searching for something to give Holmes on her wedding day that would fit.
“So I found this beautiful little sterling and enamel little mirror that’s attached to a ring,” Shields said. She added that she and Holmes were somewhat bonded because their daughters share a birthday and were both born at Santa Monica’s St. John’s Hospital. After the wedding and after celebrating their daughters’ birthdays together once, they kind of went their separate ways.
