“Susan’s so happy, and she wanted to share her joy” with Radar readers, gushed a pal, adding it’s “given her a whole new lease on life!”

As Radar reported, gravely ill Richardson, 65, told Radar last spring that finding out the news she was to be a grandma gave her “a reason to live.”

“They’ve been friends for 14 years,” Richardson previously revealed of her daughter Sarah and son-in-law Rich Berardi. “They got married in September 2015, and thought that they might adopt.”

“But then Sarah, who’s 37 now, got pregnant naturally, and it was the best news ever!”
