Brooke Shields on Grier & Suri's Birthday Coincidence: Isn't it Ironic?

We weren't the only ones shocked that Brooke Shields gave birth next door to Tom Cruise's robotic girlfriend on the same day at the same time.

“You know, the irony is perfect,” Shields tells newsmagazine Access Hollywood in an interview that was to air Monday night. “The world works in an interesting way, but we [were] both pretty busy that day.”

Both children were born April 18, reportedly in the same Los Angeles hospital. “Yeah, rumor has it,” Shields, 40, says. “Again, I was pretty distracted.”

When asked if she had any run-ins with Cruise at the hospital, she replied: “No. God, no, and it’s a gift having kids, you know, so it’s a beautiful thing rather than anything else.”

Still, don't expect any play dates.
