Denise Richards & The Five Kids

Denise Richards takes her daughters horseback riding

Mom-of-three Denise Richards was spotted with her daughters Sam, 9, Lola, 7, and Eloise, 23 months at horse back riding lessons in Los Angeles, Calif. on Sunday (May 19).

The following day, the girls were photographed with their 4-year-old twin brothers Max and Bob at gymnastics class in Agoura Hills. Joined by papa Charlie Sheen’s bodyguard, the kids were seen piling into the vehicle after class.

On Saturday, Denise stepped out with her daughters at Corolle’s Adopt-A-Doll event at The Grove.

Our hats go off to Denise! In addition to being single mom to her three kids, the actress, 42, is temporarily caring for her ex-husband’s sons.

Charlie’s third ex-wife, Brooke Mueller, 35, checked herself into rehab on May 3 for “prescription drug abuse,” the same day sons Bob and Max were removed from her home by the L.A. County of Department of Children and Family Services due to an “unsafe environment.”

Rather than staying with Charlie, the twins were place with Denise, who has looked after the boys before.

“You just figure it out because you don’t have a choice. You have these children depending on you,” Denise recently told Us of how she manages. “You prioritize. I had children because I want to be a parent, and I want to be there for them. I think my biggest challenge is [that] their different activities sometimes overlap,” she added, noting that she tries to attend everything. “I have a good schedule going. You just manage.”

As for her relationship with her bad boy ex, Denise says they get along swimmingly.

“My situation with Charlie is that we’ve gotten along for quite some time now, and it’s so much better,” she said. “There are a lot of feelings and emotions there, but at the end of the day, our daughters benefit from us getting along, and [I do], too.”

“I don’t want to have an unhealthy relationship with him, something toxic with a lot of animosity,” she added. “Life’s too short for that. We actually enjoy hanging out, and we enjoy being with the kids.”

    She is a saint and thank goodness she is there to help these little boys, obviously her girls have a great mother and will be ok, hopefully Brooke can get her act together and learn how to parent like Denise does!
