Denise Richards certainly knows how to keep a secret! The actress surprised everyone earlier this week when she announced that she had recently adopted a baby girl, who she named Eloise Joni after her mother who passed away 2007.
According to a source, Denise chose to keep the adoption of her third daughter “extremely quiet,” adding that the process “has obviously been going on for quite some time.”
And why did the Starship Troopers actress finally decided to go public with the big news? “At some point, they wanted to leave the house!” the source says, adding, “The whole family is thrilled. Denise is a fabulous mother and the girls are great big sisters.”
Denise is also mom to Sam, 7, and Lola, 6, from her previous marriage to Charlie Sheen.
