Get the tissues! Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Denise Richards gushed about her husband Aaron Phypers in a new interview, calling him a ‘wonderful stepdad' to her three daughters Sam, Lola and Eloise.
Denise, 48, chatted about Aaron, 46, and RHOBH in an interview with Billy Bush for Extra on Friday, September 27.
“Aaron is an amazing man, a wonderful stepdad,” she gushed. “He’s an amazing dad to Eloise who he’s in the process of adopting.” Denise first revealed Aaron’s adoption plans on The Talk in May 2019.
Denise adopted 8-year-old Eloise in June 2011. She shares Sam, 15, and Lola, 14, with ex-husband Charlie Sheen.
The Wild Things star also discussed how great Aaron has been with them filming in front of the RHOBH cameras. “He’s surprisingly extremely supportive,” she said.
Aaron became an official stepdad when he wed Denise in Malibu on September 8, 2018. Sam, Lola, Eloise and all her RHOBH costars were present for the big day.
Denise has previously spoken about Aaron’s efforts as a stepdad in an interview with Yahoo! Entertainment on August 23, 2019.
"He and I are definitely great partners with the kids and we’re definitely on the same page, which makes it so much easier,” she said. “We have a strong family unit, we’re very secure and I’m so happy that Eloise has such a wonderful dad and my girls have a great stepdad."
The Bold and the Beautiful star also spoke on how her girls reacted to him once he became a special part of her life.
"They saw how — right away — how he treated me and how he was with them and I think they felt comfortable with him right away," she said. "It was definitely an adjustment because the girls had always had — I didn’t share my dating life with them, I was very private about it, so it was an adjustment, but it was a good adjustment."
Expect to see more of this blended family-of-five in the upcoming season of RHOBH. She and her costars Kyle Richards, Teddi Mellencamp, Erika Jayne, Dorit Kemlsey, Sutton Stracke and Garcelle Beauvais started filming for the show earlier this month.
