Denise Richards “Overjoyed” By Adoption

Following in the footsteps of Sandra Bullock, many were shocked to find out that Denise Richards had secretly adopted a baby without the knowledge of the media.

The process of adopting Eloise Joni “has obviously been going on for quite some time.” A source says that Richards kept the whole adoption process “very quiet.”

Richards already has two daughters, Sam, 7, and Lola, 6, with ex-husband Charlie Sheen. Eloise is the third child for this single mom which makes the process that much more special to Richards. She did this on her own.

The timing of the adoption is still unknown. It could have been weeks already that Denise had Eloise at home, but what urged the actress to finally share the news?

“At some point, they wanted to leave the house!” the source says, adding, “The whole family is thrilled. Denise is a fabulous mother and the girls are great big sisters.”

“Thank you for all your sweet messages,” Richards tweeted Wednesday. “The girls and I are over the moon, and so is my dad, Grandpa Irv.”
