Denise Richards: 'My Daughters Embraced Their Adopted Sister'

| Filed under: Denise RichardsFamilyAdoptionCute KidzPerezcious Parenting

Denise Richards knew that she wasn't done having children after a divorce, and instead of waiting around for a new man - she decided to take matters into her own hands by adopting baby Eloise.

It turns out that the process was much more intrusive then she could have ever imagined. And the two people she didn't want to involve the most, her daughters Sam & Lola, ended up straight dab in the middle of it.

Here's what she said:

"To be honest, I didn't want to involve them that early, but when you go through the adoption process you have to do a home study, and they have to talk to [your] children, and I didn't want to talk about it with the girls that early, because it was two years before the adoption came through. I wanted to keep it private, and in our family. I'm actually glad, because it turned out to be a good thing."

We're wondering though why Denise wanted more children so badly? Was two not enough?

Here's what she said:

"I felt like I wasn't done having children, and I've always wanted to have a large family, and so after my divorce I felt like, 'Oh well, I'm sure I'll soon enough get remarried and have my family [grow]', and that wasn't in the cards at the time, so I decided to expand my family on my own."

How do your daughters feel about adopting after they've seen the process up close?

Here's what she said:

"They want to adopt when they get older and become moms. I'm so very proud of them that they've really embraced Eloise. They're so protective of her, they play with her, they love watching her grow and change, and so far I haven't seen any jealousy. They're the best big sisters, but they still haven't changed any diapers."

Aw.

How precious.
