Shields previously opened up to PEOPLE about Rowan, as well as her 16-year-old daughter Grier – who she shares with husband Chris Henchy – and how her daughters aren’t interested in her career.

“I’m not a TikTok influencer so obviously I don’t exist,” she joked to PEOPLE. “I’m not sure how to fix this but I get requests for things like curling irons and boy trouble all day so I guess I feel like I’ve done something right good.”

Shields said seeing her two daughters growing up in a generation surrounded by social media has put them in “such a different spotlight.”

“Unfortunately, my projector is not informative for their projector,” she explained. “They have a spotlight while they sleep, every bite of food they take is a spotlight. So I’m not trying to compare it because I’m going to fail because it doesn’t relate.”

Still, Shields said she implored her two daughters to remember that all is not as it appears on social media.

“What I say over and over again is that what you see may not be the reality,” the model said. “And you can’t just accept it because the spotlight is on it and it’s on Instagram. You really have to know that’s the world of Oz because behind the curtain is where you want to be. live.”

“I think it’s just about communicating with them and showing them as much as possible,” she continued. “It’s the truth, and that’s what it says there. So let’s try to live in the truth. You know?”
