Update: Tori Spelling appears on Good Morning America, The View, and Good Day LA

03/14/2008 at 10:35 AM ET

Update: Tori tells Good Day LA that she is in her third trimester, meaning the latest she is due is the second week of June.

Originally posted March 11th: Telling The View ladies that she’s due "in early summer" and that she already knew she was pregnant when co-hosting the show last November 6th, Tori Spelling appeared on both the ABC talk show as well as Good Morning America in promotion of her new memoir, sTORI Telling. The 34-year-old actress revealed that she chose to write the extremely personal book because,

People spent so many years telling stories about my life … I figured my whole life was out there anyway, except falsely written about. I thought, ‘I’ll tell my own stories, and tell them truthful this time.’ I feel at this point it’s all out there, and it’s the truth. What can they say now?

Although Tori recently admitted that she is afraid to have a daughter given the relationship she’s had with her own mother, she says that Candy‘s connection to Liam Aaron, 1 on Thursday, is her top priority.

She’s developing a relationship with Liam, which is most important to me. She’s a great grandma, and at this point in my life it’s all I can ask for. Whether we have a bad connection doesn’t matter. They have a connection and that’s great.

[Motherhood] bonded us in a way that can’t be broken. I don’t know if its made us closer, but I understand her better now because now I’m a mom as well. I know that love that can’t be broken between a mother and a child. And I know how much she loves me.

Click below to read why Tori chose to include Liam in her reality show Tori & Dean: Inn Love, watch the GMA interview, see a part of her View interview, and for photos from her appearances.

Growing up in LA is tough, and although she and Dean briefly moved to Fallbrook, CA to run their inn, Tori says they chose to move back to the city. Saying that it’s "difficult to raise kids" in the area, and that the paparazzi attention can be overwhelming, she instead chooses to focus on the positive and try to live normally.

I tried to shield him from [the spotlight] for the longest time. And then at some point you just kind of go, ‘Well, I’ve just gotta live my life.’ And by having him on the show, that was our real life. Our show is so family friendly, so I felt comfortable putting him on the show.

Tori and husband Dean McDermott originally said they expect their second child in July — but from Tori’s comments this morning, we’re thinking the due date may be June instead. Time will tell!

nothing big just wanted to add that Liam turns 1 on the 13th not the 12th

Liss on

I can’t wait to read her book, i am going to the book store on the way home to get it.

Dawn on

Anyone know who makes the dress she wore on GMA this morning?

Natalie on

I saw her on the View this morning. She’s so down to earth, i love her!

I’m definitely going to buy her new book🙂

Judyb on

Stori Telling by Tori Spelling. Cute. LOL

miameows on

Does anyone know if the show (Inn Love) will come out on dvd? I don’t get the channel that the show is on, so I have never seen it😦 Wikipedia doesn’t say anything about it coming out on dvd.

Sasha on

I bet it’s a girl🙂

I will definitely buy her book! It sounds like it will be a good one!! I have a feeling she is going to have a girl too. I’m sure she will create a bond with her daughter and not lack any connection like Tori lacks with Candy. My mother and grandmother aren’t close at all, I think that has a lot to do with the kind of close relationship my mom created between the two of us. We are totally BFF!

I think little Liam is absolutely adorable, but I’m really not a fan of Tori. She seems like she’s doing anything to get money these days…reality shows, books, etc. Her motives just don’t seem right to me, I don’t know. She sure looks good during her pregnancy, though (a little on the thin side, even).

Sarah’s note: She did talk a bit about that on GMA today. She said, yes, doing that book was partially for money, and so was her jewelry line and her other ventures, but that she’s very proud because she works hard for the money and it’s hers.

Suzianne on

I like Tori and she just glows now that she is finally happy and the hairstyle suits her although her roots need a touch up.
Saw her on The View and the dress is lovely and so colourful. Liam is always smiling so he must be one happy and contented baby.

Jo on

I think it might be July… because if it was June wouldn’t she already know the sex… or she might keeping it a secret.

Sarah’s note: I am wondering if she knows and is just keeping it private for now. She’s already hit the 5 month mark either way. I think she and Dean have chosen to be a little more selective with what they tell the press this time; already it’s so different than with Liam – she announced at 4 months with him, no official announcement at all this time. We knew her exact due date last time, this time we can’t even get the exact month. We knew as soon as they found out it was a boy last time … and this time I wonder if we won’t know for awhile, if at all.

bri on

I saw her on the view, and thought it was very funny that you could see her spanx. reminds me that we’re all the same!!!! 🙂 everyone needs those things.

Elysse Espiritu on

I got the book yesterday and could NOT put it down. Yes, many of us have this preconceived notion that “she will do anything for money.” But after reading her book, it will change your mind about her. Please go out and read it!

laura AS1 on

She just looks beautiful pregnant, doesn’t she? She totally has that glow. Little Liam is a doll, can’t wait to meet the new addition!

Jess on

Love her white dress!

Heather on

I read some excerpts from her book and I was really impressed by her honesty. It seems she learned a lot about parenting from how her parents were with her and how it affected her. She basically wants a completely different environment for her kids other than the one she had. She seems like a great mom.

Loralee on

Liam is just adorable and Tori looks so beautiful. I will definitely be reading her book. I think it’s great that she is working hard to help support her growing family. I think her motive is just that- support her family along with maybe correcting some info that has been in the media about her and her family. I wish her a safe and healthy pregnancy and delivery.

gabriella on

I always thought she was due in june, and yes I think she knows the sex and is just being private. I think it’s another boy. I have always liked her and plan on getting this book. She looked nice today on her appearances. Liam looks just like dean IMO.

Meredith on

If anyone knows anything about her orange/green/yellow dress, please post info!! I want it!!
Thanks!

Tori certainly DOES seem more private this time around. Oddly enough, I’ve noticed that both Gwen and Angelina are also being more private this time around.

When Angelina was pregnant with Shiloh, she revealed the pregnancy to an aid worker in the Dominican Republic when she was about 5 months along (she revealed it in January and Shiloh was born in May). This time around, apart from letting her belly do the talking at the Independent Spirit Awards, she hasn’t made an official announcement.

She also spoke about the pregnancy a few times, even confirming at one point that she and Brad did know the sex, but weren’t sharing. This time around, she has not said one word about it.

As for Gwen, to my knowledge, she, too confirmed her pregnancy with Kingston either in December or January (by saying at one of her concerts, “I want you all to shout really loud so the baby can hear you!” or something like that.). This time around, she has not confirmed her pregnancy.

I am not entirely sure but I think that Gwen, like Angelina, spoke about her first pregnancy a few times. This time around, like Angelina, she has not said a word about it.

Anyone have any insights into why Tori, Gwen, and Angie are being more private this time around?

Nicole on

I absolutely adore Tori! So glad for her and Dean in their 2nd pregnancy!….My guess, I think it’s going to be another brother for little Liam!, but we’ll see!

Tori and Dean are a great couple, and I’m glad they found each other. They seem to have amazing chemistry and I absolutely love their show.

KatieKate on

Her dress is by Trina Turk.

Kelly on

good for her i read the article she did for people and i think shes a good person i hope she gets a girl so she can have one of each im gonna get that book

ang on

she looks great-tori has written on her myspace about liam’s recent milestones and other stuff(dated yesterday)on the way to NYC.

Jennifer on

I think Tori looks fantastic this time around. I hope I too can not gain so much weight my second time around.LOL

I admire Tori, her honestly and her humbleness. I think Dean is an influence on that! Liam looks so much like Daddy these days. Too cute!!

Sadie on

“Anyone have any insights into why Tori, Gwen, and Angie are being more private this time around?”

My guess would be that every time a celebrity is really honest about their life, and kind of puts it all out there, they are heavily criticized for it. Everything they do is scrutinized and picked apart, and they are often accused of using their pregnancy to get attention. So maybe they see the wisdom in laying low this time around. Or perhaps none of these women realized before how much of an interest the public would have in their pregnancies and so this time they’re keeping things more private.

terri on

Britney was much more private with her second pregnancy as well. She didn’t even let Jayden be seen in public for several months.

Eliza on

Does anyone know if Dean’s kids from his first marriage are still involved with him at all? I think they’re both adopted… the little girl just before he left his wife for Tori…

Cause I’ve never seen him with Tori & his other kids, so just wondering what happened there?

Angela’s note: Dean is involved with his son Jack. We posted pictures from over the holiday of Jack spending time with Dean and Tori. Dean is no longer legally responsible for Lola.

Eliza on

So is Jack adopted? How old is he?

With Lola -is it sort of like when Angelina & Billy-Bob were married & she adopted Maddox just b4 they broke up?

Angela’s note: Jack is not adopted. He is 9 years old. Yes, I believe it is sort of that.

CelebBabyLover on

terri- True! Oh, I hope Angelina doesn’t do that (keeping her baby hidden for several months like Britney did)! I would be very surprised if she did, though, since the paps would probably just hound the J-Ps like crazy in order to get the “first photos”.

Jo on

I think she might know what she is having, i don’t know why she keeps saying Oh were are going to find out.

Jack i thought was his biological child and the baby lola was adopted. I have seen him twice with Tori and Dean, i do not think he has any contact with Lola

Sarah’s note: Lola was in the process of being adopted when everything happened, and Dean was not part of the finished product legally.

I am about to post something from her Jimmy Kimmel interview in a minute, she says they do not know yet, but will find out. It could be that the baby has not been in a position to allow them to see yet.

Mimi on

I think they already know it’s another boy…seems like celebrities with one or more boys don’t seem too excited to announce that it’s…another boy! Cate Blanchette (possibly), Melissa Joan Hart, and maybe Tori.

Not that they are not excited to have another boy…any baby born is a reason to be excited!

Pam on

Glad the due date question is cleared up.

Thanks for the videos, I had missed the appearances!

Melissa on

Some people just choose to wait until later on, or the baby might not have been in a good position. If they do know, maybe they are saying they will find out soon just in hopes that people will stop asking. I don’t blame her.

She looks amazingly better with this pregnancy too. I think she absolutely learned from #1. I hate it when women use pregnancy as a reason to pig out. I think she’s being much smarter this go round for a healthy baby and a healthy mommy.
