Spelling: “We always wanted a big family”
Tori Spelling says she was shocked upon learning she’s pregnant with her fifth child. Needless to say, she and husband Dean McDermott are “really excited” about growing their family.
She shared with People magazine: “It was a total surprise. But we always wanted a big family. I’m really excited.”
The star and her husband – who also has a grown son from a previous marriage – feel like they are starting all over again due to the constant caring for their kids.
She said: “Dean was saying, ‘We just got Finn out of diapers; I thought we were in the clear! For the first time this year, they’re all in school. So it’s like, wow. We’re basically starting over.”
Despite being busy parents, the couple believes that the baby has come at an appropriate time.
She continued: “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.”
But not everything is rainbows and roses with the two. The star had previously admitted to have edited her reality show Tori and Dean to show her husband’s more positive side and hide his temper.
“I was controlling it as best I could. I was being real, but I knew not to let it go to a certain place. I knew Dean had a temper, and I didn’t want that on camera, because that didn’t serve us well. We were like America’s sweetheart couple. Why would I do that? There were some things where I’d be like, ‘You guys have to cut that out.'”
Tori admitted to have seen a different side of him while filming, adding: “I was the executive producer. I looked at every edit. I basically protected our relationship through that. At first, it was fine, but it was a new relationship for us. All of a sudden, we got pregnant, and then I saw a different side of him. Not that I didn’t love him. But I thought, I didn’t sign up for this. Wait, you didn’t show me this. He said, ‘If I had shown you that side, you wouldn’t have been with me.’ That’s not fair.”
