Tori Spelling: We Were ‘Really Surprised’ with a Girl
Three kids? New house? No problem for Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott.
“It’s not that crazy juggling three kids because after the second one you’ve lost your mind,” McDermott, 45, joked during a Monday appearance on The Talk.
“But to top it all off we moved, so we have a newborn and we’re still in boxes, that was the hardest thing. The place we have now we love and I want to grow old there.”
Also having to adapt to the changes are Liam Aaron, 4½, and Stella Doreen, 3½, who — despite an initial adjustment period — has now taken to the role of big sister.
“We didn’t find out what we were having — we thought we were going to have a boy. So we were really surprised when we had a girl. Stella wanted a girl and Liam wanted a boy,” Spelling, 38, shares.
“Then I think once we had a girl, she was like, ‘Wait a second.’ But now she loves it because her thing is that she picks out [Hattie’s] clothes — she styles her.”
But while the new family of five may be settling in nicely, a recent picture-perfect moment temporarily turned their world upside down!
“It was the evening of my birthday … the kids stayed up to give me their presents and they had made the box that they gave me the present in,” McDermott recalls. “They put little stickers on it of things I like, like rolling pins and frying pans because I’m into cooking.”
And when McDermott and Liam started “goofing around” as Spelling nursed Hattie behind them, the proud papa couldn’t resist snapping a shot of his son for Twitter.
“We were having so much fun so I stuck [the sticker] on his head, took a picture and I sent it. And then we went to sleep.”
The result? After his followers realized McDermott had accidentally included Spelling breastfeeding in the background, he jokes, “The next morning it was like boobie city!”
“What am I going to do? I am a mom, I was nursing my baby,” Spelling tells CNN in a separate interview. “He was so devastated about it that I couldn’t be mad. I mean, it was genuinely an accident.”
