Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott welcome daughter Stella Doreen

06/09/2008 at 07:31 PM ET

Torispelling0809_cbb_2 Actress Tori Spelling, 35, and her husband Dean McDermott have welcomed their second child together. Daughter Stella Doreen McDermott was born at 3:13 pm PT today, Monday, June 9th, at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, CA.  She weighed 6 lbs, 8 oz, is 19 and 3/4 inches long, and her middle name is after Dean’s late mother. Tori’s rep stated,

She’s a healthy baby girl. Tori and baby are resting comfortably.

Stella joins big brothers Liam Aaron, 15 months this week, and Jack, 9, from Dean’s previous marriage.

The pregnancy was rumored in January, but Tori never officially confirmed — instead, she was photographed with her pregnant belly out! She revealed the sex in March and posed for the cover of People. In May, Tori celebrated her baby shower.

The third season of their show, Tori & Dean: Home Sweet Hollywood, premieres Tuesday, June 17th at 10 pm on Oxygen.

rachael on

Yay! Love the name…nice and classy! Curious, though–does anyone know if Doreen is after anyone in particular, maybe one of the grandmas?

Congrats to the Spelling-McDermott family!

Sarah on

It says Doreen is in honor of Dean’s late mom.

I like Stella, cute name.

rachael on

So it does! I guess I was so excited–I didn’t read it carefully…thanks!

tink1217 on

Never cared for the name Stella but CONGRATS!!!!

Jenn on

Doesn’t Dean also have another daughter, Lola, that he adopted with his ex-wife? I notice that she’s often not mentioned in article that list his children.

Bella Mama on

Stella will be the new Ava..

congrats to both parents and baby Liam..

Maggie on

Love the name!! Fits the family well.

Erin on

If I’m not mistaken, doesn’t Dean also have a daughter from his previous marriage? This would make four then, not three…

Sarah on

Dean was removed from the adoption process of Lola as part of the divorce proceedings.

Erin on

Oh, thank you for clearing that up. I did not know Lola was adopted.

brannon on

I agree – Stella is becoming quite popular again! I know three in the past month. Cute name though. I had guessed a flower name like Lilli, iris or Rose but this is an adorable choice ๐Ÿ™‚ Congrats.

tracieleigh on

Love LOVE the name. I was really thinking they might go with Erin – a nice Irish name and a way to honor her father. But with Liam’s middle name being Aaron, that kind of gave Daddy spelling a living memorial!

I cannot wait to see this baby! YAY!!

emily on

Love the name. It fits their family well. Jack, Liam and Stella are all great names. I can’t wait to see a pic (though I’m sure there will be no shortage, lol).

Emaline on

Love the name! How sweet! I bet she will be just as gorgeous as Liam. Congratulations Tori & Dean!!

Harley on

Fabulous news! Congrats to the family!

Sylvana on

Congrats to Tori, Dean andLiam with the arrival of their daughter and sister Stella Doreen.

I love the idea of both Liam and Stella’s middle names. They did a great jobnaming their children.

I wish all four of them all the best.

Erin on

LOVE the name!! Congrats to the McDermott clan! Can’t wait to see photos! ♥

ang on

tori & dean have posted a thankyou message on their myspace, along with glittery blinky text of stella’s name:

“We’re so happy to finally welcome our little girl! Welcome STELLA DOREEN MCDERMOTT! She was born June 9th at 3:13pm. She weighs 6lbs 8oz. Thanks for all the love and support”

Ayanna on

I love the name Stella!
I think its neat that Liam was born on March 13th so numerically that’s 3/13 and little Stella was born at 3:13.

eve on

Do those two ever give themselves breathing space?

Tracie on

Good luck Tori and Dean – I have 2 children 15 months apart too! Totally exhausting!

dan s. on

Internet shopping for a good cause!!!

terri on

Congratulations to the family! Stella is a cute name and I think it’s sweet that both of the children have names of their late grandparents.

Elizabeth on

I love the name!

Kelli on

What a horrible name for a baby. Sorry, but would you really want that name? I love Liam, why not give the baby a sweet girl name.

Allie on

Congrats to the happy couple. I think that they chose the perfect name and it totally fits the family. I wonder what they will name all the other children. Cant wait to see some pictures.

Sue P on

Comgrats to all the families. Love both names and hope there is baby #3 in the near future. You make great paremts.

Susie Festa on

I am so happy for all of you. Now your family is complete. With the babies, and the new house both of you must be very happy.
I got to meet Tori at a book signing at The Grove. I loved the book. I told Tori she was having a girl. I am always right. I don’t know why, but I do have a 50/50 chance of being right.
I gave Tori my dog sitting card. I have just retired from working over 33 years at a major medical center in LA.
My husband and I wish Tori and Dean all the best wishes in the world.

Benigna Marko on

Nice family addition. Complete with all the good news. Tori don’t worry Mom will come around. She loves you and it is probably hard for her to let her guard down. Moms sometimes surprise us. Benigna Marko
Oh, one more thing, you are experiencing the love of a mother, you know how wonderful it feels, so think about it towards your Mom, I am sure she feels the same for you and wishes to be part. Never ever give up.
Benigna Marko

Sherry on

I say congratulations to Tori. Not Dean. I dont have much respect for a man that will claim his two sons Liam and Jack but throw away his daughter Lola. Dean and his first wife adopted Lola and I guess since she is not his biological child she doesnt count in his eyes. Shame on you Dean!

Julie on

Congrats homewreckers. Karma.

Sarah on

I can’t believe their having a baby girl! I wish the best for them!

Sherrie G on

Congrats to the happy family. I watch your show every week and its REAL about love, marriage, children, friends, families and all the drama. The very ups and the very downs.

Dean, the love you show Jack when he is with you, will last a lifetime of distance. The guilt you feel will never go away but if you believe in the choices you’ve made, it will dim with time.

Carol on

Tori and Dean..
Congrats, Stella is Beautiful..Liam is so cute love your show..What a beautiful family.
