If you were at all surprised to hear that Tori Spelling is expecting again, join the club: So was the mom-to-be.
Spelling found herself pregnant with her fourth child just five months after giving birth to her third, Hattie, the result of a happy accident.
Us Weekly reports that the 38-year-old actress explained the surprise at a launch event for her new book “CelabraTori” Tuesday in New York City.
“All my friends keep asking me [if it was planned] and I'm like, 'Seriously? Hattie was one-month-old,” she said at the party. “Do you think it was planned?’ I was up all night with feedings."
Guess being up all night can lead to some mischief: “The doctor said, 'Wait six weeks [to have sex],' and [my husband] Dean [McDermott] was like, 'They tell everyone that.’ We didn't wait that long with Stella or Liam,” she revealed, referring to her other children. “I was like, 'Well, I don't want him to think that the sex is going downhill,' so now we're on baby No. 4."
Technically it’s now five kids, including McDermott’s teenage son Jack from a previous marriage.
It’s all good though: that’s just plenty more family fodder for the next season of Spelling’s Oxygen reality show, “Home Sweet Hollywood.”
