Denise Richards had planned on adopting for a long time
HollywoodNews.com: Although the adoption may have seemed like a total surprise, this was something Denise Richards wanted to do for a long time.
Richards had reportedly started talking about adoption with her mother before she passed away a few years ago, states PopEater. However, she reportedly wanted to wait until her custody matter with Charlie Sheen was completely over.
Now, her newly adopted daughter, Eloise Joni, has been named after her late mother who passed in 2007. The whole family reportedly agreed that the name was perfect for the new addition.
Are you surprised she kept the adoption so quiet?
