Denise Richards: "Eloise Has Brought So Much Joy"

Denise Richards introduces her new baby girl Eloise Joni in the new issue of US magazine. (See a picture of the beautiful mom and daughter.)

“She’s brought so much joy, and I love her to pieces,” says the 40-year-old actress, who is also mom to girls Sam, 7, and Lola, 6. “She is a cuddle bug. She loves being hugged and held. She’s such a beautiful little baby and little soul.”

Revealing that the adoption process took two years, Denise dismisses the notion that “if a celebrity wants a baby, they get one the next day.”

“There were times I felt discouraged, times when I got close to adopting a baby and it fell through,” recalls the single mom. “But I knew the right baby would find us.”

Though she’s been through some ups and downs with Sam and Lola’s dad Charlie Sheen, Denise insists that he’s been a source of support, revealing that they “talk every day.”

“He knows how much I love, love kids, so he was very supportive. Charlie is truly very happy for me. He knows I always wanted more kids.”

      That must mean Charlie doesn’t call her DUHneese anymore?

    Eloise is absolutely beautiful and I love her name, especially the fact that Denise gave her Joni to honor her mother.
