Denise Richards seemed to have it all – breathtaking beauty, a lucrative career and two darling daughters. But The Real Girl Next Door author recently admitted that there was something missing.
I’ve always wanted more children and [I] had to make a decision: Do I wait to find the right partner or do it on my own?” Richards, 40, shared during a Tuesday appearance on The View. “So I just did it on my own.”
After a two-year-long process, the brown-haired beauty made her two daughters Sam, 7, and Lola, 6, big sisters when she adopted now 6-week-old Eloise Joni.
Despite not having a man around to lend a helping hand, Richards is grateful to be receiving support from her friends and family.
Fellow celeb mom Ali Landry, a friend of the Undercover Brother star, told E! Online that Denise “has plenty of support. She’s so lucky to have her family and her sister. She has a great support system of friends, and it’s just great.”
Denise formally introduced the newest addition to her family during a July 23 baby shower.
“I thought [Eloise] deserved [a party] and it was a wonderful way for my friends who hadn’t met her yet to meet her,” she explained. ”[The theme of the shower] was a take off of Eloise the movie, so it was lovely.”
Congratulations again to the mom-of-three on her gorgeous family!
