Happy Third Birthday Liam McDermott!

03/15/2010 at 05:00 PM ET

It’s a superhero celebration! Tori Spelling and hubby Dean McDermott don their best costumes to help son Liam Aaron turn three on Saturday in Los Angeles. The actors, plus 21-month-old daughter Stella Doreen, fought crime — and ate cake! — with friends and family. The low-key celebration included loot bags for guests filled with Mabel’s Labels Bag Tags and other treats.

It’s back to work soon for the couple, whose reality show, Tori & Dean: Home Sweet Hollywood, returns on Oxygen April 5.

Liam & Stella are adorable….but my my Tori is…..dare I say “scary skinny” in the second pic. Almost sickly looking……she is normally very tiny…but this is extrmeem even for her. Scrumptious kiddies none the less.

Luna on

Monika: I think it’s just the way the cape hangs, the angle at which she’s standing, and Stella on her hip. Just guessing.

Liam and Stella are getting so big! What cutie pies.

They look so cute, dressed up as superheros for Liam’s birthday. One thing’s for sure, Tori goes all out for her kids’ birthday. πŸ˜‰

Monika on

Luna: Let’s hope your right

Angi on

It looks like Tori is at an angle. She is small, but the cape and BB girl are making her look tiny. Their kids are going to be SO tall.

Monika: I completely agree. If I’m wrong, she’s scary skinny like you said.

Cute πŸ™‚ Stella is adorable!

Elissa on

Tori & Dean are such good parents! I love how they are all dressed up, absolutely adorable!

Kaela on

Look like an awesome party. I love the kids and parents all dressed up in capes! I’ll have to steal that idea one day.

Jen on

Love this family! Such sweet kids and adorable superhero costumes! Cannot wait for the Tori and Dean season to start!

Mandy on

Glad to see Stella’s hair is growing! Yay!

Rachel on

*Rubs eyes vigorously*… okay seriously… is #3 an optical illusion, has Liam been photo cropped out of another picture and pasted into that one, or is he really THAT tiny!? I’m I the only one who thinks it’s odd looking?

Otherwise… adorable kids and awesome party idea!

Sam on

I was thinking the same thing Rachel. That does not look like an actual picture that has been taken. Liam is not that ‘tiny’. That picture just does not look natural at all.

Liam and Stella look so much alike! I wonder if their big brother Jack was there, sure hope so.

actualsize on

He does look odd but I think it’s just an optical illusion, maybe the bench is further back than it looks? Don’t know why they would photoshop it into just those two photos out of the set.


JM on

can’t say i love this family or the way they pimp out their kids, and their children’s milestones any opportunity they get (and they do, let’s not kid ourselves). but they do seem to love them and be happy, and that is the most important thing.
oh and tori is too thin, it’s up to her, her life but any sane human being can see that that’s unhealthy.

Tee on

Rachel, I was surprised by that picture as well. He does seem awfully short there in comparison to other pictures that we have seen.

I don’t know much about Tori and Dean so I don’t tend to comment on a post about them. I did giggle a little when the article described the party as being “low key.” That is one seriously big and elaborate cake for a low key party! I’m not critizing them because it really makes no difference to me what kind of party they throw for their son. I just can’t see calling it low key, that’s all.

I love the pictures!!!, I can’t believe how big the kids have gotten!!! I think Liam and Stella are such beautiful children!!! Tori and Dean are such a great couple and they are such an awsome family unit!!! Tori if you actually read this girl you have no problem to worry about becoming your mother because your NOT!!!!! You are an amazing mother to both your children!!!, and you have an amazing husband. I love watching your show and can’t Waite for the season to start!!!!! Yaaaaah!!! I don’t know why people are so obsessed with how thin Tori is??? She might look thin but that’s not out of the norm for stars!!!, Tori your beautiful!!!! Just the way you are!!, also I loved your books couldn’t put them down!!! Looking forward to the next chapter!!! Love your biggest fan!!

Amy on

Tori looks thin…really thin. It looks like her face is bigger than her thigh. Yikes. Cute b-day theme though and the kids are adorable.

CelebBabyLover on

On the page that actualsize linked to, there is an adorable photo of Liam and Stella together (unfourtnately, it, along with the others, is a thumbnail and can’t be enlarged, probably because the photos are, as it says on that page, “Exclusive”. Hopefully that means we’ll be seeing the full versions in a magazine soon, though! :)). πŸ™‚

Also, you can see by those pictures that Batman and Spider-Man even made an appearence at the event. πŸ™‚

CelebBabyLover on

Oh, and Stella’s getting so big! She looked a lot like Liam for awhile, but now she’s starting to have her own look. πŸ™‚

Romy on

Tori’s body is too skinny for her head, BUT the cape makes her look way smaller with the way it is cutting off her arms, shoulders and hip.

Janna on

What person thinks it’s normal to look that thin? Even for a celebrity, she’s too thin. She looks like a bobblehead. Her head is way too big for her body (like Lara Flynn Boyle).

She was so beautiful on 90210. Now, she either she needs new mirror…. or some therapy.

JMO on

Tori is VERY thin. I am not sure I dig Liams hair either. But they’re very cute kids nonetheless.

Nicolle on

I have to say these pics are absolutely precious, but why would they let a special/private moment like a birthday party be photographed for everyone to see? I guess some people don’t mind, and I personally don’t agree with it, but either way cute kids!

marla on

i hope tori eats some of that cake. wowsers, she’s thin.

Lacey on

Since when does a “Low-Key” birthday party involve a cake that the size of a wedding cake. I agree. Tori is a bag of bones.

jo on

sooo cute picture of Liam with his dad pretending to be Super Heroes!!! πŸ™‚
Happy Birthday Liam!!!

Eloise Nipper on

I think Dean & Tori are awesome parents. Their children are beautiful and they all seem very happy!

Anna on

What “low-key celebration” includes batman and spiderman visiting and a huge cake?

Tori looks just awful, I hope she realizes soon she has a problem.

That last photo looks cute, because Liam looks so tiny.

CelebBabyLover on

Romy- I agree! The cape is making her look skinnier than she is!

Elissa on

Hey everyone, I was at Disneyland yesterday and so were Tori, Dean, and the kids….I hate to report this but It is not the cape that is making her look sickly thin. In person it is just as bad. I personally love her and she did not look healthy,way too skinny.

The kids are absolutely adorable. And there is no lack in Liams’s size. They are also very well behaved kids! Dean was hot as ever but I think that Tori needs to get healthy.

Justin Draplin on

These outfits are from http://www.kids-capes.com, I’m not sure why it says something else.

intrigued on
