Denise Richards is a new mom again after quietly adopting a baby girl to add to her brood.
Eloise Joni, named after Denise’s mother, Joni, who lost her battle with cancer in 2007, is the latest addition to the Richards gang. The former Bond Girl, now 40, already has two daughters — Sam, 7, and Lola, 6 — from her messy four year marriage to cracked-out sitcom star Charlie Sheen. The girls played a pivotal role in naming their new baby sis, Richards’ rep told PEOPLE Wednesday.
“Eloise Joni Richards is named after Denise’s mom [Joni], and Denise and her daughters Sami and Lola chose the name Eloise. Denise and Eloise’s big sisters couldn’t be happier and feel incredibly blessed.”
Not long after the news broke, Denise hit her Twitter page, where she thanked fans for their outpouring of support over the news.
