Date of Birth: March 9, 2004
Parents: Denise Richards & Charlie Sheen

- Denise had originally planned to deliver Sam via c-section on March 10, ten days before her March 20 due date to coincide with then-husband Charlie Sheen’s filming hiatus, saying “It was convenient. We like to plan things.” Sam had different plans however, and arrived on the 9th in Los Angeles.
- The name Sam was chosen after dad Charlie’s former cat: “Charlie really wanted Sam (as a name for our daughter) and I dreamed of one day naming a girl Sophia – something feminine – or Emma. She’s named after the cat. We don’t have the cat anymore, though.”
“Sami starts kindergarten, which I cannot believe, in a couple of weeks. I’m so sad about it. I can’t believe how fast five years have gone. I’m very proud of her and very happy, but from here on out she’s in school.” – Denise, on her daughter heading to school.
“I think it was a good thing to teach my kids because they saw that I was nervous. Sammy, my oldest daughter, saw me on Good Morning America and when I came back from New York, she said, ‘Are you nervous to do Dancing With The Stars?’ And I told her I was and she said, ‘Then why are you doing it?’ I thought it was such a great lesson to teach my kids, that just because I’m nervous doesn’t mean I shouldn’t do something.” – Denise, on teaching a valuable lesson to her daughters.
