Denise Richards, Charlie Sheen and Brooke Mueller might not have the most conventional family dynamic, but Denise says it actually quite "normal" and she's always willing to pitch in when needed.
The beauty stopped by Access Hollywood Live on Wednesday, where she chatted about her work with ShoeDazzle - which is benefitting the Kidney Cancer Association - and she also spoke about helping Charlie and Brooke care for their 3-year-old twin sons, Bob and Max, while Brooke was reportedly in rehab.
"[The twins] are back with Brooke Mueller," Denise told Billy Bush and guest co-host Vinny Guadagnino.
With the twins - plus her daughters Sam, 8, Lola, 7 and Eloise, 18 months, Denise had her hands full.
"This is not the first time I've had all five, they're Sam and Lola's brothers. It was a full house, lots of love and life," she explained. "Brooke knows anytime, and Charlie, that any time they need help with the boys, that I'm there."
Despite divorces and past problems, the actress stressed that they put their family first.
"They're our family and they're Sam and Lola's brothers and I can't imagine growing up without my sister, so anytime she needs help, I'm there for the boys," she continued. "[Sam and Lola] are the best big sisters to [the boys] and they love them."
Adding, "I know it doesn't seem normal, but it is our normal. They're little kids and I love children, and like I said, it's our daughter's brothers, so I can't say no."
