When fate led screenwriter Chris Henchy to cross paths with the dazzling model-turned-actress Brooke Shields in ’99, sparks were bound to fly. Thanks to a mutual buddy at Warner Bros., the two were introduced, and their whirlwind romance escalated pretty quickly. With a romantic backdrop of Mexico, Chris popped the question in 2000, and by 2001, they exchanged their vows. Brooke swears by two secrets for their lasting bond: honest chats and occasionally, a bit of “me” time. As she puts it, “A dash of distance can do wonders.”
