Wow, just days after Tori Spelling made me kind of naseous with her line about “my now pliable pelvic bones move and crunch,” she has given birth to her fourth and possibly last child. Tori stepped out just a few days ago, and everyone was making a big deal about how she was ready to give birth at any moment. Usually when celebrities do their “last red carpet” before giving birth, they’ve still got several weeks left – but not Tori! She gave birth last night in LA. A little boy! He’s already got a name too:
It’s a boy for Tori Spelling! The Craft Wars host and her husband, Dean McDermott, welcomed their fourth baby, Finn Davey McDermott, on Thursday evening, Spelling confirmed on her website.
“Please join us in welcoming Finn Davey McDermott,” Spelling wrote of her 6 pound, 6 ounces bundle of joy.
The McDermott family’s new arrival joins older siblings Liam, 5, Stella, 4, and Hattie, 10 months. (McDermott also has a teenage son, Jack, from a previous marriage.)
Confirming her pregnancy in March — just five months after welcoming daughter Hattie — Spelling, 39, caught flack for expanding her brood so quickly. And while the actress joked that it was her husband’s insatiable sex drive that led to her unplanned pregnancy, McDermott said he doesn’t regret ignoring doctor’s orders to wait at least six weeks before getting intimate.
“It’s so funny how everyone blames the man,” McDermott, 45, told Celebuzz after Spelling confirmed their family was growing. “It’s like, ‘Oh my God, will you leave your wife alone?’ But it takes two to tango. She wasn’t putting up that much of a fight. But I have big shoulders. I’ll take it.”
Choosing to keep her newborn’s gender a surprise until giving birth, Spelling has said her older kids took gaining another sibling in stride. Liam and Stella were “over-the-moon and super excited” when she and her husband of six years announced they were expecting Hattie, but with their new sibling, “it was as if we had said, ‘Oh we got milk today,” Spelling confirmed. “We brought home milk today and put it in the fridge and you can go help yourself to a glass.’”
Outside of her family home, Spelling wasn’t afraid to flaunt her growing baby bump — haters be damned. “I have to say, I’m super proud of my bump. Why should I be embarrassed and cover up something that’s the greatest gift a woman can experience? A pregnant woman in any shape or size is beautiful!” Spelling — who made a habit of flaunting her figure in sexy maternity clothes, including skimpy swimwear — blogged in early August.
“I’m making a conscious choice to show my daughters that they can express themselves and be proud as a woman of their bodies,” she continued. “I don’t ever want them to think that they should be ashamed of or self-conscious of their bodies, no matter what shape it’s in.”
I don’t completely hate the name “Finn Davey”. In fact, I’ve always liked the name Finn in general – although I’ve always sort of thought it would make a better animal name, you know? Like, Finn the Puppy. Finn the kitty cat. Davey seems a bit twee – cute enough for a baby or a child, but as an adult, I think he’ll probably dislike the Davey.
Anyway, congrats to Tori and Dean. I do hope Dean leaves his wife alone for two seconds and Tori doesn’t get knocked up straight away yet again.
