Denise Richards has introduced her new baby daughter to the world in a new magazine spread.
The actress, who has two young daughters from her marriage to ex-husband Charlie Sheen, recently expanded her family by adopting a baby girl called Eloise.

Richards has now posed for a photoshoot with the tot for Us Weekly magazine, and opened up about her joy at becoming a mother again, telling the publication, “She’s brought so much joy, and I love her to pieces. She loves being hugged and held. She’s such a beautiful little baby and little soul.”

The Wild Things star also revealed she endured two years of struggle as she waded through the complicated adoption process, adding, “Some people think if a celebrity wants a baby, they get one the next day. The adoption took two years, and there were times I felt discouraged, times when I got close to adopting a baby and it fell through. But I knew the right baby would find us.”
