Tori Spelling

It was a family affair for Tori Spelling, who brought the whole gang for their first public event since 3-month-old Finn‘s birth in August.

Joining the actress, husband Dean McDermott and their newborn are Hattie, 13 months, Stella, 4, and Liam, 5½.

“I’m not going to lie. It’s a little crazy. It’s hard work,” Spelling tells PEOPLE.

“I think three was safe. Four tips you over the edge a little bit. Maybe it’s because they’re 10 months apart — but we’re so blessed. It keeps you on your toes.”

Malin Akerman

With her first child on the way in April, Malin Akerman was all smiles at the event, posing with her growing belly.

“I’m feeling great,” the actress tells PEOPLE. “I’m closing in on five months now so it’s getting more and more exciting as time goes by.”

I love all these family pictures. Tori Spelling looks Amazing as EVERRRRR. xoxo

Anonymous on

Adorable pictures, and I love how Hattie seems to be such a daddy’s girl!

Anna on

I love Jason and Molly. They endured ridiculousness and came through. Congratulations to all families!

Sarah on

So close! You almost made it through the entire article without saying baby bump. Please, please stop using that term, it’s horrible! I actually clicked on the article to commend you on using baby belly as the headline.

JM on

:) they’re very cute pictures but notice how they’re all c-list celebrities trying to get mentioned in tabloids? it’s not surprising or anything, just something i noticed. no angelina jolie’s, no daniel craigs, no johnny depps. nope the wife of someone who used to be on a teen tv series in the 90s. :)

not that it bothers me, i just thought it was funny. i hope they all have lovely christmasses.

Sandra on

Wonderful photos of beautiful babies, kids, families, and pregnant ladies :)

Question: I thought that David Boreanaz‘s daughter’s name was Bardot Vita; did they change it?

Megan on

JM, James Van Der Beek is actually currently starring on a hit show, as are a few others pictured. No it’s not A-list, but it’s a nice mix of people.

gigi on

Bronwyn and Slater have gotten so big and cute!

candianblackgirl on

Is it just me, or does Ali Landry’s husband look alot like Mario Lopez with facial hair??…dimples and all!

Angela on

Is it me, or does Spencer Grammer’s son have blonde highlights in his hair?? Looks quite unnatural to me…

Monica on

I’m curious how the 3 former 90210ers got along. They famously don’t get along anymore so I would have loved to be a fly on the wall for that alone. Or maybe the Guncles spaced them out so none of them were there at the same time. That’s the gossip I want to know about!

Sandals on

All the pics are great but, I’m SO happy for Molly and Jason!! I think they’ve been married for 2 or 3 years and Ty, Jason’s little boy from his first marriage, must be 7 or 8 yrs old by now! Congrats to everyone!

JM – they may be C-listers, but if they gave generously at this charitable event, who cares? A dollar is a dollar whether it comes from Angelina Jolie or one of these C-listers.

colleen on

l love the picture of Ian holding the frame over his daughter’s face. Tori’s kids are gorgeous.

Peggy Smith on

The way The Bachelor works, wouldn’t be surprised if they were planning to televise the birth of Jason’s and Molly’s baby!

SKG on

How great that they all support LA Family Housing which helps families end homelessness in their lives.

La La La on

Even though it’s been a while since Jason Mesnick humiliated Melissa Rycroft on national television, I still cannot look at his face without being hit with waves of nausea. It apparently didn’t matter to him that in his narcissistic need to make HIMSELF happy, he would hurt someone else terribly, someone whose only mistake was falling in love with him. Melissa has moved on and is very happy, but I will ALWAYS remember what a lady she was in one of her darkest moments. I would not have been as gracious.

Sandra- Yes, they did. David discussed it in an interview a year or so ago (I forget the reason he gave for the change, though!).

Anonymous on

La La La- So he should have stayed engaged to her even though he realized he didn’t love her?!

Anonymous (December 4th)- I get where you’re coming from, but I doubt we have to worry about that. They didn’t telvise the births of either of Trista and Ryan Sutter’s kids! :)

sweetkatilyn21 on

JM, I wouldn’t consider them all C-listers. Malin Ackerman is a pretty well-known actress. Tiffani Thiessen, David Boreanaz, Kaitlin Olson, Rob McElhenney, and Amanda Righetti are all on very well-known shows. Either way, they’re very adorable photos.

Ali Landry’s kids are SO cute. They have such sweet little smiles :)

Mya on

Tori’s oldest daughter Stella looks adorable, but why is Hattie bald? Weird. Angela Bassett’s twins are so cute, and the son is so cool! Kim Van Der Beek needs some sun or a spray tan. She is ghostly pale.

klutzy_girl on

Wow, La La La you really need to move on. To get so upset over people you don’t even know. Weird.

As anonymous said, what’s he suppose to do stay with her even though he had no feelings? Kudos to him for doing it for himself and for making him happy in his life.

happygolucky on

Angela Basset and Courtney B. Vance are not C-List actors. Basset is a Golden Globe winner, has been nominated for an Academy Award and is a wonderful actress on the both the big and small scren. Vance is an accomplished actor on stage, television, and screen. He worked for years on Law and Order. He has been nominated twice for a Tony Award. They are not C List.

I don’t see the point of splitting hairs over their celebrity status – whether they are A-listers or Z-listers,(hopefully) the point People is making is that these people made generous donations to a worthwhile charity. Hopefully those higher up on the celebrity food chain (A-listers) are as generous.

Mya- Some babies just take awhile to grow hair (and if you look at other, closer-up pictures of Hattie, you will see that she DOES have hair, just not that much of it!). As I recall, Liam and Stella didn’t have much hair at that age either. :)
