Tori Spelling is pregnant again. The actress and her husband Dean McDermott announced that they are expecting their fifth child together on Wednesday. The couple, who often make headlines for their financial woes, are adding another member to their family.
According to Gossip Cop, Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott are already the proud parents of sons Liam, nine, and Finn, four, as well as daughters Hattie, five, and Stella, eight. Dean is also the father of Jack, 18, from his previous marriage to Mary Jo Eustace. The couple made their big announcement this week, which was complete with a family photo shoot where Spelling showed off her pregnant baby bump.
Tori Spelling, 43, spoke out about her happy news to People Magazine. The former Beverly Hills 90210 star said that the pregnancy was a “surprise,” but that she’s thrilled to be adding another member to her family.
“It was a total surprise But we always wanted a big family. I’m really excited. For the first time this year, [the kids are] all in school. So it’s like, wow. We’re basically starting over.”
Dean McDermott, 49, also expressed his excitement over Tori Spelling being pregnant with the couple’s fifth child. The actor even joked that the family would now need a Sprinter van to carry all of their children. Meanwhile, Tori reveals that baby number five is coming at the best possibly time for the family.
“This baby happened at the best time. Nothing is ever perfect, but I’m so madly in love with my husband and with our kids. The idea of adding to that is such a blessing.”
The newest addition to the McDermott family is the first since the cheating scandal that nearly tore Tori and Dean’s marriage apart. After Dean admitted to cheating on Tori during a one night stand back in 2013, the actress was devastated. The aftermath of the infidelity was chronicled on the couple’s reality TV series True Tori, which aired on Lifetime. Many fans accused the couple, who recently celebrated their 10-year anniversary, of making up the cheating rumors to boost ratings on the show, but Tori and Dean adamantly denied those claims.
Meanwhile, Tori Spelling’s pregnancy announcement comes just days after news hit that she and Dean McDermott owe tens of thousands of dollars to American Express. Fox News reports that the credit card company sued Spelling in January for failing to pay her credit card bill. American Express claims that the actress had not paid her bill since June 2015. Now she’s been ordered to pay the company $40,000. In her 2013 memoir, “Spelling It Like It Is,” Tori wrote about the financial troubles.
“It’s no mystery why I have money problems. I grew up rich beyond anyone’s dreams. Even when I try to embrace a simpler lifestyle, I can’t seem to let go of my expensive tastes… And then there’s my little shopping problem… I can’t afford to live like this anymore. Our circumstances have changed. They say admitting the problem is the first step.”
Tori’s mother, Candy Spelling, has also often been blamed for keeping her late husband Aaron Spelling’s money away from her daughter. Earlier this year, Candy revealed to TMZ that she does help Tori out with necessities, but that she refuses to pay for Tori’s extravagances. Tori Spelling is also reportedly facing a tax lien from California for $259,000. It looks like Tori and Dean have a lot of issues to sort out before baby number five arrives next year.
