Denise Richards has rekindled her romance with Richie Sambora.
The actress and the Bon Jovi guitarist - who dated for around a year before splitting in 2007 - have decided to give their relationship another go and have been on several romantic dates.
A source told E!: "They're very happy and are dating. They never stopped caring for each other."
Denise - who has three daughters, Sam, seven, and six-year-old Lola, with ex-husband Charlie Sheen, and adopted four-month-old Eloise - has always had feelings for Richie and said he would always play a part in her life.
Writing in her memoir, 'The Real Girl Next door', Denise, 40, said: "Richie and I shared an easiness I hadn't before had. We were able to be open, honest, and completely authentic with each other, with no judgment.
"I don't regret my relationship with him. I learned hard lessons from our journey together. My heart may have been bruised, but it was pure. Richie is a wonderful man. He came into my life when I needed him and he needed me. We'll always have that bond."
