Celebrities who have undergone marital issues that ended in a divorce may seek solace in other individuals, specifically children. While adoption is a serious matter, it can benefit both of the parties who are involved. 

Denise Richards is an actress who recently dealt with a nasty divorce from Charlie Sheen, the actor who has been all over the news for his crazy antics. While she had originally wanted to take care of his kids from a previous marriage, the star decided to adopt a baby instead, according to the Daily Mail.

The actress adopted a baby girl, who will join her two daughters as part of the Richards family. She has named the infant Eloise Joni, after Richards' mother, who passed away from cancer several years ago, the news source reported.

Unlike many of the recent celebrity adoptions that have occurred, the baby was born in the U.S. The young girl is only several weeks old, TMZ reported.

Richards is famous for her early modeling work and her roles in "Starship Troopers," "Wild Things" and "The World is Not Enough."
