Denise Richards’ children were told Santa Claus didn’t exist at school.
The 39-year-old beauty was relieved to be able to persuade daughters Sam, six and five-year-old Lola – her daughters with ex-husband Charlie Sheen – they had been given false information and that the giver of Christmas gifts is real.
She said: “It was almost blown. There was a little girl at school – Sammy told me, ‘Mom, is it true you put your name on the present?’ and I said, ‘No’.
“I love that they believe in Santa. It’s so fun.”
Discussing her children, Denise believes her eldest daughter is most similar to her dad because of her “focus”.
She told US TV show ‘Access Hollywood’: “Lola’s definitely very spontaneous and very chatty and all of that, and Sammy, I would say she’s got a lot of Charlie in her – she’s very quiet, she’s very focused, which is fantastic with school and everything.
“But I think there’s a lot of me in both of them. And Sam is definitely more like her dad and Lola’s a lot like my mom too.”
Earlier this month, Denise revealed her daughters wanted to have American Girl dolls for Christmas.
She said: “Have you heard of American Girl? That’s all they want. They actually went through the catalogue, and that’s all that’s on their lists.”
