Denise Richards and Richie Sambora are back together, a source tells Us Weekly. The duo dated from 2006 to 2007 after splitting from their respective spouses. Richards, 40, was accused of "stealing" Sambora from Heather Locklear, but assured Us she "[dated] a former friend's husband, [but did not] break up a marriage."

The Wild Things actress and Sambora's rekindled romance "started again a bit ago," a source tells Us. "They've always stayed friends, through everything they've gone through. He's had a rough patch, she's had her own stuff but they're both in a great place right now."

But Sambora isn't the only love in Richards' life: the actress adopted baby Eloise (now four months old) this summer. She and ex-hubby Charlie Sheen are also parents to daughter Sam, 7, and Lola, 6.

A source adds Richards and Sambora, 52, are "doing great and happy. It's really nice for both of them."
