Looks like Denise Richards is really bonding with Brooke Mueller's son Max!
The two were spotted looking affectionate and adorable while they were out shopping in Malibu at Cross Creek with Richards' daughter Lola!
The only thing we worry about is the cellphone in between Denise and Max's head, and not just because of Stephen King's novel Cell where everyone who uses a cellphone simultaneously turns into a zombie type person.
Okay it's mostly because of that, but still, cradling a phone and a child can't be that safe!
Overall though, Denise is really nailing this whole parenting thing.
Basically any kid in the world is secure in this hot mama's hands!
