Denise Richards and formerly estranged daughter Sami send love to each other on Mother's Day

Denise Richards had been estranged from her eldest daughter with Charlie Sheen, Sami, but they reconnected in time for Mother's Day.

The 18-year-old shared a few images of herself with her mom in front of Italian restaurant Giorgio Baldi in Santa Monica, Calif., alongside a sweet message.

"Happy mother's day !!," Sami wrote. "i love u so much mom. u have no idea how grateful i am to have u in my life."

Richards responded, "Thank you Sami for an amazing Mother's Day. It means a lot to me."

The Love Actually actress also mentioned her own late mother, Joni, who died of cancer in Nov. 2007.

"I know nana was at dinner with us she would never miss one of her favorite restaurants," Richards wrote. "Thank you & I love you so much."

The mother and daughter duo a lot better off than they were last year, when Sami posted on TikTok that she had "finally moved out of the hell house," which she said was "abusive" and made her "insanely depressed," before making the posts private.

She moved in with her dad, who said she would be taking the GED.
