I think that it’s safe to say that I’m in the majority when it comes to people who are absolutely thrilled for Denise Richards after adopting her third daughter, baby Eloise Joni. Denise is such an amazing mom, and I’ve always admired her strength, and her devotion to her girls.
Denise had been trying to adopt a baby for quite some time before she got little Eloise, and she is over the moon now that her family is complete. Babies in this country can be adopted at any age, even directly after birth. How old is Eloise Joni?
Judging from photos taken of Denise in New York City with daughters Sam & Lola and baby Eloise in tow, I’m guessing that she is somewhere around three months old, or at least 12 weeks.
Photos of Denise carrying Eloise were taken at JFK airport after her flight arrived from Los Angeles. Most doctors advise that it is not safe for infants to fly under the age of three months, because they need to build up their immune systems before being exposed to the kinds of crowds you find on airliners. It is also very rough on young babies’ ears to be on a plane before that age.
From the looks of the airport photos, and pictures that were just released of Denise leaving her hotel in NYC carrying baby Eloise, she really doesn’t look much older than three months. And the fact that Denise has her covered by a blanket to shield her from the sun suggests that she is most definitely still only a few months old. Babies aren’t supposed to wear sunscreen before the age of six months, so it’s best to keep them in the shade until they reach that age.
How old do you think baby Eloise is?
Update: New PEOPLE article reports that baby Eloise is 6-weeks old.
