Denise Richards: Daughters Sam and Lola 'Very Protective' Of Baby Eloise

Denise Richards says daughters Sam and Lola are smitten with their new little sister Eloise. In fact, they’re already helping to take care of the newest little lady of the house.

“She’s just so wonderful and a blessing,” Denise told Billy Bush on Wednesday’s Access Hollywood Live about her new adopted six-week-old daughter.

“Sammy and Lola are thrilled beyond [belief],” she continued. “We just love her to pieces.”

The new mom, who also has a new book, “The Real Girl Next Door,” said her older daughters love pitching in with the baby.

“They help feed her, they pick out her cute little outfits, they’re very protective of her,” Denise said of Lola, 6, and Sam, 7. “It’s really, really sweet.”

The new mom told Billy that she’s having trouble putting her little one down at times.

“I carry her everywhere,” she said. “I just love her so much and she just loves to be held and cuddled. I hold her all the time.”

She also revealed that ex-husband Charlie Sheen has met Eloise, who came into her life after a two-year adoption process.

“He has met her. He’s really excited for me and the girls,” she added. “He knows how much I wanted to have more children and he is honestly, genuinely really thrilled for me.”
