Tori Spelling says they don't know the sex, but will be finding out

03/14/2008 at 01:25 PM ET

Appearing on Jimmy Kimmel Live last evening in promotion of her memoir, sTORI Telling, Tori Spelling, 34, revealed that although she and husband Dean McDermott want to know the sex of the baby she’s carrying, they haven’t yet been able to find out.

No, we don’t know yet. We are going to find out, because I hate yellow nurseries! And then if you don’t tell people, you just get [gifts of] yellow and white stuff!

Tori is in her third trimester and is due in early June.

Does someone like her really need to get gifts or have another baby shower?

We didn’t find out before delivery with my son, but even if we had wanted to, we couldn’t have known until about 8 months. My OB said he was in such a weird position they couldn’t see a thing, until he actually got in line correctly for the delivery, and that wasn’t until the third trimester.

Must be annoying for them if they really want to know!

As far as yellow and white, yeah we got a lot of those (and green), but a lot of people got us blue and then pink or purple outfits, and then included a receipt, or just got us Old Navy, Gap, Gymboree etc gift cards to use when we knew. It was better that way anyway, because a lot of people get you things in 0-6 months, then you hit 6 months and have nothing! So we saved the gift cards and bought a lot of 6-12 and 12-18 month outfits with them.

Leela, I saw the show and Tori was clearly joking around with Jimmy. She doesn’t seem to take herself too seriously. But yes, I’m sure friends and family will want to get her gifts like they would for anyone else.

I am not a big fan of yellow for nurseries either. I guess the baby wasn’t cooperating for the ultra sound. lol. when my sister went to her’s the baby was at weird angle sleeping and as much as they tried to get her to turn she wouldn’t move! My sister was so upset but luckily she had to go back a couple of weeks later for another one and they were able to tell then.

Yellow for a nursery if you love yellow is one thing, but because you don’t know who you’re painting for? Blah!! We usually find out who we’re expecting ahead of time, but I think if I didn’t find out, I’d just wait and decorate after the babe made his or her debut!

I agree with you Pam, Tori seems to have a lot of fun at her own expense. I DOUBT she’s hinting at/expecting another shower or tons of gifts. I’m sure she was just trying to make her point in a funny, easy to relate to kind of way.

I love Tori, but have to say a delivery room surprise is so much fun! We are expecting baby #2 in June and will be surprised on the big day. Painting a room is not a good reason to find out, IMO. We will decorate afterwards. That will be my husbands “job” during his month off of work.

I am such a fan of finding out the sex beforehand but I would never diminish someone’s joy in having a delivery surprise just because I want to buy things and have everything finished ahead of time. As far as giving things is concerned, you know people typically like to celebrate babies and give gifts even if the person receiving them is well off. It’s the joy in giving that makes it exciting for those of us who are not expecting.

I can’t wait to find out what they’re having if they choose to share with us🙂

Why shouldn’t “someone like her” have another shower or get baby gifts from friends or family or whoever. Wouldn’t you want a little celebration for ALL of your babies, not just the first one? Just because she can afford to spoil herself or family a little doesn’t mean that others shouldn’t be able to celebrate in their own way as well. 🙂

everyone goes on about how poor she is, then when she gets knocked up, everyone starts saying she is rich again. interesting….
besides, if she had a girl, she wouldn’t HAVE anything specific for her anyway.

Why is the assumption that you have to go with yellow for a “delivery surprise” baby? Maybe I wouldn’t go PINK with a baby if I didn’t know it was a girl, but there are many, many lovely colors that go either way. Even some shades of blue are absolutely dainty and pretty and could work either way. When I was pregnant with my first, I was sort of convinced it was a girl and I still went with a really sweet blue decorated with nursery rhyme paraphernalia. Then we found out (early) that it was a boy, and I was almost peeved–assuming that people would think we’d chosen blue BECAUSE he was a boy!

I think yellow can be a beautiful nursery colour (has anyone seen Juno – how funny is the bit where she’s picking the nursery colour?!)
I plan to have delivery surprises and paint the nursery yellow and decorate when I’m in nesting mode. Yellow with a jungle animal theme probably…
And then when we have our next child we plan to move them into a new room which we will decorate for them and the new baby can have the same nursery, like Melissa Joan Hart has done (and other ppl I know)
But I hope I don’t get alot of white stuff as I feel it gets dirty really quickly, that’s why I don’t wear white…
And I was brought up to believe green is unlucky so don’t like it and neither does my partner so we’ll kindly ask for no green things…
Pam – great idea about the gift cards!!!

Also I think Tori deserves as many gifts as those close to her wish to give her… Giving a gift is not always about the person needing something, it can be to celebrate the joy of a new baby, a birthday or ’cause you love them. If we all only got what we needed for presents they wouldn’t always be very fun or exciting (e.g. groceries…)

I would caution Moms to be to not get all 6 months and up. I was 10 days past my due date and still my son was a “preemie” size. We had *nothing* for him to wear because everyone! told us to get size 6 month and up. I get families that one outfit that may be too small at the get go, but at least if the baby needs it–there is something to wear to the hospital🙂

We wanted to find out the gender for #2, but its legs were crossed and would NOT extend them. I got up, walked around the room and everything. It took a while, and we did finally get the “sneak peak”. We wanted to know b/c there really is very little gender neutral type clothing out there. Not just colors, but embroidery too. We already had a boy and the second child deserved to come home in something new, and if it was a girl, she would be wearing trucks and puppies until we managed to get out.

I’m so happy for Tori! I hope it’s a girl this time around – Liam is such a cutie.

By the way, why do CBB’s articles always say “sex” instead of “gender?” The latter is correct.

Sarah’s note: We had been corrected previously about using gender because gender = masculine and feminine while sex = biological male and female. Via Google, sex refers to biological differences; chromosomes, hormonal profiles, internal and external sex organs. Gender describes the characteristics that a society or culture delineates as masculine or feminine.

So while your sex as male or female is a biological fact that is the same in any culture, what that sex means in terms of your gender role as a ‘man’ or a ‘woman’ in society can be quite different cross culturally.

So sex is actually more correct and that’s what we use.🙂

I am wondering how she stayed so thin this pregnancy? With my son I got so fat and I am scared to be pregnant again because it took such a toll on my body being so fat… Just wondering if anyone has heard if she is still eating Nutrisystem or working out or what. I have heard that Nutrisystem is not even edible? Any thoughts on that too?

terri on

I actually like the gender neutral nurseries. The clothing isn’t bad either. Whenever you find out the gender it’s a wonderful surprise, but delivery surprises are especially wonderful.

I think Tori already knows the sex, but since she has been promoting her new book doesn’t wanna be pushed into saying it on interviews, so for now is saying they don’t know. I know 3 people, one is a client of mine that rents a house I own, another a cousin, and another a lady I know in the gym and their all due in june, and they all know the sex by now, so I think tori does too. I think it’s another boy. I just got her book too, so can’t wait to start reading it this weekend.

gabriella- It could very well be that they’ve tried to find out, but the baby hasn’t been very cooperative!
