Co-parenting with an ex, their new spouse and new additions can be challenging. But according to Denise Richards, it’s one big happy Hollywood family with her ex-husband Charlie Sheen, his ex-wife Brooke Mueller, and their 3-year-old twins Bob and Max.
Already mom to three daughters – Sam, 8, Lola, 7, and Eloise, 18 months – the big-hearted actress told Access Hollywood that it’s really quite a “normal” family and she’s always willing to be “there for the boys.”
“They’re our family and they’re Sam and Lola’s brothers and I can’t imagine growing up without my sister, so anytime she needs help, I’m there for the boys,” Denise said. “[Sam and Lola] are the best big sisters to [the boys] and they love them.”
The Wild Things star added, “I know it doesn’t seem normal, but it is our normal. They’re little kids and I love children, and like I said, it’s our daughter’s brothers, so I can’t say no.”
“This is not the first time I’ve had all five [kids],” she said, adding that the boys are back with their mom. “Brooke knows, and Charlie, that anytime they need help with the boys, I’m there.”
The Madea’s Witness Protection actress, who was married to Sheen from 2002 to 2006, told Rolling Stone earlier this year that they “are like best friends now. Confidants. He tells me everything.” And in August, she threw a birthday party for Mueller at her home in Beverly Hills.
“Ex-wife No. 2 (me) is having ex-wife No. 3′s (Brooke) birthday party at my house,” Denise tweeted. “Oh, and our ex-husband will be here. How’s your Sunday?”
Bravo to you, Denise! Co-parenting done right!
