Former E! reality star, Denise Richarsds added a new baby girl to her family. That’s right, Denise Richards adopted baby Eloise Jonie, which makes her a proud mommy to three girls. We are finally learning the details of why Denise wanted to add to her family, keep reading to learn more!
It was quite a shock when Denise Richards, 40, finally confirmed that she did indeed adopt a daughter. However, for Denise the adoption was a long time coming. A source tells Popeater.com that the actress started the adoption process over two years ago and that Denise didn’t care what the sex of the baby was.
Denise discussed adoption with her mother, before she passed away from cancer in 2007. A close friend told Popeater.com, “She wanted to wait to start the process until things were calm with her custody of her two daughters she has with Charlie, (Sam, 7, and Lola, 6) and mourning her mom.” So it couldn’t be more fitting that when Denise finally adopted her baby girl, she would honor her mother by using Jonie as the baby’s middle name. Sam and Lola chose the baby’s first name, Eloise.
As we have seen in her very public custody battle with ex-hubby Charlie Sheen, Denise is very protective of her children. So Denise has remained very low key about all the adoption details, but we don’t blame the new mommy. So what do close friends of Denise have to say about the adoption? A friend told Popeater.com, “She’s got the biggest heart in the world and plenty of love to share. She learned from her own mom how to be such great parent. Sam and Lola are the best big sisters in the world, so Eloise is one lucky little lady.”
We are sure Denise feels her mom played a role in putting Eloise Jonie in her and her daughter’s lives. A very happy ending for a mom who feels family is more important to her than anything – and it shows!
