Denise Richards has two children with ex-husband Charlie Sheen, Sami and Lola, as well as a third child, Eloise, whom she adopted after the couple split up.
Sami Sheen, 17, Lola Rose Sheen, 16, and Eloise Joni Richards are the delighted kids of Denise Richards, 50. During her high-profile marriage to Charlie Sheen, which lasted from 2002 to 2005, the actress and Real Housewives of Beverly Hills alum received her two oldest daughters.
Denise adopted her daughter Eloise as a single mom a few years after her tumultuous divorce from Charlie. Denise has subsequently remarried to Aaron Phypers, and the couple is now legally Eloise’s parents.
Denise’s marriage to Charlie was difficult, as fans know, both during and after their marriage. A judge recently granted Charlie permission to stop paying child support to Sami and Lola. This legal event occurred after Sami apparently moved in with Charlie over a “rules” quarrel with her mother. Everything you need to know about Denise Richards’ three children may be found below.
Daughter Sami, Denise and Charlie’s eldest child, was born on March 9, 2004. Denise requested a restraining order against Charlie when Sami was only one year old, marking the couple’s most tumultuous period yet.
The following month, Denise filed for divorce, and the divorce was finalized on November 30, 2006. Denise was awarded primary physical custody of their two children after a tumultuous custody battle, while Charlie was granted visitation rights.
Sami, on the other hand, has spent time with both of her parents in the years since. Denise was a prominent cast member on RHOBH during seasons 9 and 10 of the hit Bravo series. In the case of Charlie, the actor from Two and a Half Men was photographed with Lola and Denise during Sami’s 17th birthday party. Sami’s close relationship with her father has led to the teen’s recent decision to live with him.
“Sami is a teenager who didn’t like her mother’s regulations,” a source told HollywoodLife in September. Denise’s house has rules, just like any other mother’s. She and Charlie have opposing parenting standards and techniques, and they didn’t get along.
Sami decided she preferred Charlie’s restrictions and decided to return to her father, where she is currently residing. Denise is heartbroken by everything, but she knows she is doing her best as a mother.”
Lola Rose Sheen
Denise and Charlie had their second child, Lola, on June 1, 2005. Denise had filed the restraining order against Charlie while she was pregnant with Lola. Lola was less than two years old when her parents split for the first time. Lola, like Sami, appeared to spend the majority of her time with Denise in the following years, with occasional visits from Charlie. However, as time passed, both girls began to spend more time with their renowned father, culminating in Sami’s recent permanent move in with him. Meanwhile, Lola is claimed to be evenly sharing her time between her parents.
“Lola spends time at both Charlie and Denise’s houses,” our source explained, “but Denise has been the primary caregiver for the girls for years.” All of this makes Denise very unhappy. She’s an amazing mother who adores her children and would do anything for them.”
Eloise Joni Richards
Denise opted to adopt her third child, daughter Eloise, four years after her divorce from Charlie. Denise adopted Eloise at birth after a two-year search and gave her the middle name Joni, after her mother. Eloise has a rare chromosomal condition called Monosomy 8p, which causes developmental delays.
In a May 2021 interview with Parents.com, Denise raved about her youngest child. Denise explained, “We’ve been with her since she was a baby.” “But she’s a darling little angel and the sweetest little kid you’ll ever meet, and even the tiniest things bring her joy.” Eloise was dubbed the “animal whisperer” by Denise because of her communication techniques with the family’s pets, according to Denise. “She communicates with our animals in various ways. “Seeing that bond is really wonderful and special,” Denise added.
Denise reared Eloise on her own at first, but things changed when she married Aaron in September 2018. Denise informed after a few months that Aaron was adopting Eloise as his own daughter. In May 2019, she claimed on The Talk, “He’s great as a daddy.” “He’s fantastic with my girls, and he’s going to adopt my youngest, so it’s fantastic.”
