Shields posted a teary video to Instagram expressing her feelings about sending her daughter off to her second year of college.

“But she’s taking my car, which was my car as my graduation present car, so she’s going to be driving that,” the actress continued. 

The first year Shields dropped her daughter off, she took the ride to campus with her, but said she couldn’t go through that again, so decided to stay back and wave goodbye from home this year. 

“It was just too painful, I don’t think I could go through the driving away from campus again.”

“If there’s anyone else going through this, we’re all in it together,” she said.  

“Turns out second time is NOT the charm when it comes to your baby going off to college,” she captioned the video. “Sophomore year, here she comes. I’ll be crying if you need me…”
