Denise Richards has been spotted in public for the first time with her adopted daughter Eloise.

The actress was accompanied by her other two children, Sam, seven, and Lola, six - her kids with ex-husband Charlie Sheen - and their newly adopted six-week-old sister, whom she clutched to her chest at LAX airport in Los Angeles, before boarding a flight to New York.

Denise had earlier tweeted: "packing up the family ... heading to NY tomorrow. Week of press for my book ... a little fun in there too with the kids!! Eloise's first trip to NY (sic)."

She later added: "We landed in NY. picking up dinner to go on our way to the hotel. Long day of press tomorrow! Today show is my 1st interview of the day! (sic)"

Denise, 40, flew from the West to the East coast where she is promoting her new book, 'The Real Girl Next Door'.

On Saturday (23.07.11) she held a baby shower gathering at the Beverly Hills' Montage Hotel, which included several famous guests, including Tori Spelling, Lisa Rinna, Mel B and Nancy O'Dell.

Denise took care of her new daughter from the day she was born, and named after her mother, Eloise Joni, who died from cancer in 2007.
