    Brooke Shields has started learning to climb stairs again after breaking her femur

    The 55-year-old actress broke her femur after falling from her balance board, and after recently revealing she is relearning how to walk, she has now shared a clip of herself climbing a set of stairs at her doctors for the first time since her injury


    She wrote alongside the video: “One step at a time... Beginning is Now! (sic)”

    Brooke revealed her leg injury last week in a post on social media, where she revealed she is "beginning to mend".

    The ‘Pretty Baby’ star shared a video of herself on crutches slowly walking down a hospital corridor alongside the caption: “Broke my femur. Beginning to mend. No matter what your challenge is, make a positive choice, for yourself, to move forward. #BeginningisNow (sic)"

    And in the video, the 'Blue Lagoon' actress - who has daughters, Rowan, 17 and Grier, 14, with husband Chris Henchy - explained how she can't put a lot of weight on her leg.

    She said: "There’s only 20 per cent weight … The goal is to bend your knee each time like a little bit, just so you’re not dragging it or hitching up your hip.”

    Brooke later opened up on her injury when she said she feels as though she has to “begin again” every day in her journey to relearning how to walk.

    She said: "I fell off a balance board. Honestly, every day I feel like I'm having to begin again. Rehab is always slow and it's one day at a time and you just take what you can control and go, 'Okay, I'm going to be happy with that as my progress for right now.'"

    The star still has a long way to go before she’ll be back to full health, but has insisted she’s determined to keep a positive outlook on her situation.

    She added: "If you ask yourself to come up with reasons why things are bad, you'll come up with pages and pages. But if you just ask yourself to think about the positives, whatever they are, it could always be worse. People are struggling everywhere. I have day-to-day things that I can do in my realm of control, in every area of my life. That's what I'm going to focus on."
