Along with Lola, Richards shares daughter Sam, 16, with ex-husband Charlie Sheen. The Bravo star is also mom to 9-year-old daughter Eloise, whom her current husband Aaron Phypers is adopting.

Last summer, Richards opened up to PEOPLE's Celeb Parents Get Real about the values she holds near and dear to her heart when it comes to raising her children.

"I think that my daughters will tell you that I'm a strict parent," said Richards, who previously revealed she had installed security cameras outside her home to prevent Sam from going out to meet with boys without her permission.

"I definitely have rules and boundaries and there's consequences," Richards said, adding that she doesn't let her daughters "do whatever they want."

While the Bravo star admitted that one of her daughters can be "extremely headstrong," she said she recognizes the positive values in that character trait as well.

“My father said, 'It might be challenging right now, but when she's an adult, you are going to be so grateful because she is going to be one strong woman,' " she explained.

"And that's when I was like, 'Okay, that's my daughter,' because I'm pretty sure I was probably very similar with my parents," Richards added.
