A famous actress has just opened up about her young daughter. In a new interview, Denise Richards revealed something that many people don't know about her young girl.
Richards spoke out to tell fans that her daughter, Eloise, has special needs. It was a great interview that raised a lot of awareness for the special needs community.
"A chromosomal disorder 'has caused a lot of developmental delays for [Eloise],' Richards tells People. 'She wasn't able to sit up on her own for a very long time, and she didn't start walking until she was 2, and that was with physical therapy.'"
Richards also discussed her development and where she currently is at.
"She can only say a handful of words," Richards continues, adding that Eloise was diagnosed with a deletion on chromosome 8 two and a half years ago. "And there are times when she feels like her age in understanding, and then other times where it feels she's emotionally 3 years old. It's been challenging. I'm learning every day because they don’t really have a road map for her particular case."
She received a lot of support on social media. It was so great to see so many people come forward and offer their support for Richards and her daughter.
"Richards, who is married to Aaron Phypers, adopted Eloise domestically while she was single in June 2011. She also shares two children -- daughters Sam, 14, and Lola, 13 -- with her ex-husband, Charlie Sheen," wrote ET.
