Denise Richards Adoption Inspired By Late Mother

Denise Richards seems to be a natural mother. For one, she married the world's biggest baby, who is infamous for his life-threatening temper tantrums. Then, during the custody battle between Charlie Sheen and Brooke Mueller, Richards reportedly offered to watch their twin sons.

Denise already has two daughters, Sam and Lola, and she recently adopted another, Eloise Joni Richards.

A source tells Popeater that Denise had been considering adoption since 2007, after her mother passed away.

"Denise has wanted to adopt for a long time and this was something she talked about with her mom before she passed away," the source explained. "She wanted to wait to start the process until things were calm with her custody of her two daughters she has with Charlie and mourning her mom."

Sheen has reportedly already met Eloise. When he was stopped by paparazzi earlier this week, Sheen said he visited Denise and referred to the new baby as "it" before quickly correcting himself and saying, "her, her."

The source continued that family is important to Richards, adding:

"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 [a] great parent. Family is more important to her than anything. Sam and Lola are the best big sisters in the world, so Eloise is one lucky little lady."
