Actress Denise Richards gives birth to second child

Los Angeles: Three months after she filed for divorce from actor Charlie Sheen, model turned actress Denise Richards has given birth to their second daughter, their publicists said on Thursday. The baby girl, named Lola, was born on Wednesday night at a Los Angeles-area hospital, and Sheen was in the delivery room at the time, representatives for the couple said. “We’re thrilled to finally meet our beautiful daughter,” Richards and Sheen said in a joint statement. Richards, 34, and Sheen, 39, star of the hit CBS comedy “Two and a Half Men,” also have a 15-month-old daughter, Sam. The actress filed for divorce from Sheen in March, seeking custody of their first child and the one she was then expecting. The couple met in 2000 after a tumultuous decade for the actor that included convictions for drug abuse, an attack on his then-girlfriend and an association with Heidi Fleiss, who ran a call-girl ring catering to Hollywood’s rich and famous. — AP
