Tori Spelling: Three Kids Under Five Is a ‘Big Feat’

Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott are suffering from a bad case of baby fever.

Only three months after welcoming their third child together — daughter Hattie Margaret — the couple already see a fourth baby in their future.

“We think we might want a fourth … we’ll see. If it’s in the stars, if it’s meant for us to have another one, we will,” Spelling, 38, tells PEOPLE.

While she insists the proud parents are already “lucky” with their family of five, McDermott quips, “I think the baby store is open for another one.”

In the meantime, however, Spelling and McDermott are settling into an easy routine with Hattie and her siblings, Liam Aaron, 4½, and Stella Doreen, 3½.

“Three children, four and under,” says the actress. “That’s the part I like to say because that’s a big feat, I think.”

But while it may sound daunting, McDermott reveals raising their growing brood has been anything but difficult.

“Oddly enough, having three children under five [has] been easy,” he says. “A lot of people ask if we’ve lost our minds and if it’s so difficult. Actually, it’s great.”

So what’s the secret to their success? The age spans between the three children.

“Liam and Stella are at the age where they’re best friends and they hang out together. And Hattie stays where you put her, so for right now, everything is really easy,” McDermott, 45, explains.

“The transition has been amazing. They take care of her and they always check in on her and want to help do stuff,” Spelling adds.

“They’re at that age where you can send them to do something like, ‘Go get this, go get that for Hattie,’ and they’ll do it.”

It really annoys me that they never mention his older son. You already have four children, guys.

I think this is one of the greatest Hollywood families by far! Nothing but love and best wishes for many happy, healthy years as a happy family 🙂

I had 4 kids in 3 years (last 2 were twin boys), now that’s hard especially as I did not have “Hollywood money” or a nanny and a husband that worked 12+ hour shifts so we could make it month to month. But, congrats your babies are beautiful!

Doesn’t he have kids too? How come they aren’t mentioned as part of the family?!

I think his older son’s mom doesn’t want him exposed to the media, so they keep him under wraps. It’s not because they don’t care!

They don’t mention his older son because his mom doesn’t want him exposed to the media. And more power to her for keeping it that way.

I think that if they want another child to add to their family, I say “GO FOR IT” Love your tv show, wish i had your luck with having babies.

I’ve got to say that I agree with Sarah’s statement on how Tori and Dean haven’t mentioned Dean’s oldest son, but I think that has to do with his mother then Dean. Like maybe she’s protective of her son’s safety in the hollywood lights (even though Tori and Dean have raised three wonderful children so far) I hope they have as many children as GOD lets them HAVE.

I think that they made this video because she was already pregnant with the fourth right away so people won’t be surprise or say much,,
