Tori Spelling and Dean welcome their fifth child together, son Beau Dean

I’m honestly surprised that Tori Spelling, 43, gave birth to her fifth child already. I expected Tori to milk her pregnancy a bit more in the press before having the baby, but maybe we’re just not paying much attention to her anymore. Tori and Dean announced the pregnancy in October, which was shortly after we found out that Tori owed over a quarter million in back taxes. The baby seemed like a way to reboot her career as a reality show fixture while also ensuring that the money kept coming in from grandma Candy. There was a $40,000 baby shower which Candy paid for, and which prompted Dean’s ex wife to remind him in court that he owes substantial back child support. There was also an exclusive Christmas-themed “gender reveal” party, covered by E! for some reason.

Well now the baby is here, he’s named Beau and joins siblings Finn, 4, Hattie, 5, Stella, 8, and Liam, 9. Dean also has an 18 year-old son from his last marriage, for whom he owes all that child support. Tori did the announcement with People, because she thinks she’s still that famous, and she only revealed the baby’s hand, because the baby’s face is worth more money I’m sure. Here’s the announcement from People:

Son Beau Dean McDermott was born at 1:48 p.m., weighing 5 lbs., 12 oz. He measured 18½ inches long.

“We are over the moon in love with baby Beau. He is a true blessing and his brothers and sisters were overjoyed to meet him! We are all truly grateful for our big beautiful and healthy family,” Spelling, 43, tells PEOPLE.

The former reality star couple revealed their baby news exclusively to PEOPLE in October, with a sweet family photoshoot and lots of candid thoughts about expanding their brood.

“It was a total surprise,” Spelling told PEOPLE at the time. “But we always wanted a big family. I’m really excited.”

While time has seemed to go by fast for the actress, author and blogger, she says she and her husband are ready for another little one around the house.

“Dean was saying, ‘We just got Finn out of diapers; I thought we were in the clear!’ ” Spelling said with a laugh. “For the first time this year, they’re all in school. So it’s like, wow. We’re basically starting over.”

I love that quote from Dean at the end, which he gave in the original People story. It pretty much says it all. What do you think about the name? My aunt has a dog named Bo with an “o” so that’s the first thing that came to mind, like Beau is not a people name, but Beau Bridges is a perfectly nice name. (Beau is his nickname, I just discovered, his name is actually Lloyd Vernet Bridges.) Beau Dean is like an old school movie star name for a guy with an awkward-sounding original name, but it’s not bad. Congratulations to Tori and Dean and their brood. I wonder if she scored another reality show yet or if she’s still hustling for one.

Tori always uses the most amusing hashtags.

The filters on this one make her face look like a cartoon.

    Beau Dean?!?

    Like… Bodine? As in, Jethro Bodine?!

    Hahahahahahaha… *gasp*… hahahaha

    This is what I needed today.

    • Esmom says:

      I immediately thought Bo Deens, actually.

    • Erinn says:

      That’s where my head went, Shambles. Glad it’s not only me.

    • GingerCrunch says:

      Thanks for the recall on that! I knew it was familiar.

    • swak says:

      Great minds and all – I was just going to say that! And why oh why is she sitting with her legs apart like that. I know it’s hard to sit, but you can keep you legs together when sitting.

      • zombie nurse says:

        As someone who is 8 months pregnant, I’ve found that it gets really hard to sit with your legs fully togeathee; however, I have yet to find the need to assume the full open leg straddle that Tori is doing there.

    • Tough Cookie says:

      Shambles!! I love you so much because of comments like this!!

    • Pandy says:

      Jethro Bodine was my first thought too lol. He will want to swim in the ce-ment pond when he gets older lollll.

  2. Kitten says:

    *insert gif of Trump drinking water with two tiny hands*

    That’s the level of thirst with these people.

  3. Bridget says:

    Did she get a whole load of free maternity clothes or something?

    Hope her insides don’t fall out after this one.

  4. SilverUnicorn says:

    At the cost of being considered a nasty biotch, some people should not reproduce. Poor kids.

  5. HeidiM says:

    She needs to be called out for continuing to produce children she can’t provide for. She getting into Octomom number now.

    • Aims says:

      I agree. There’s some people who get a high when they get pregnant . I really don’t want to be Debbie downer here, but a child is the last thing they need.

    • Pinetree13 says:

      That was my first thought…why on earth are they having a 5th child?!! It’s ridiculous. They seem so impulsive and irresponsible in all aspects of their lives and the only reason everything hasn’t come crashing down is because tori was born into money

  6. Jenns says:

    OMG…that second maternity picture. First, look how soft her face looks. That is some major photoshop. And second, that’s a Kellyann Conway couch pose.

  7. paolanqar says:

    The thirst!

  8. BearcatLawyer says:

    Lord, her clothes are hideous. That’s all.

    • GingerCrunch says:

      Right? I love when fashionistas mix prints, but even I see the clash happening in that spread eagle pose. Smh

  9. MissMerry says:

    why is it that poor people with 5 kids (who work hard to make ends meet) get sh*t and judgement for having all those kids but a rich, famous person who is $260,000 in debt ( to the government!) have 5 kids and it’s precious and special and cool…ugh.

    • Chetta B. says:

      Yeah, and super-expensive shoes AND a crocodile Birkin? You know how much that bag is worth?? Nothing but a desperate brood mare with a wet end for a husband.

    • Lalu says:

      Don’t worry. No one that I know thinks it’s precious for people who can’t take care of what they have to keep having kids… Whether it’s the grandparents paying or the govt. if you are trying to be careful and it happens, that’s one thing. But she just likes the attn and it’s gross.

    • Pinetree13 says:

      Don’t worry I’m totally judging them lol

  10. Citresse says:

    Will there be a sixth?

    • RussianBlueCat says:

      If her mother keeps giving Tori and Dean money to help out with the children , I would have to say yes.

  11. Beth says:

    Seeing people who are in a big debt like this having so many kids makes me think they’re a bit irresponsible. Think about if you’ll be able to afford so many kids before you keep having more

  12. kNY says:

    If You Cant Feed Your Baby (Yeah, Yeah)
    Then Don’t Have A Baby (Yeah, Yeah)
    And Don’t Think Maybe (Yeah, Yeah)
    If You Can’t Feed Your Baby (Yeah, Yeah)

    -Michael Jackson (who could feed his babies but maybe shouldn’t have had kids for other reasons)

  13. JustJen says:

    No sane pregnant person would ever wear heels like that (the multi-colored ones where she’s squatting- SQUATTING- on steps). And tights? When I was pregnant, you couldn’t pay me to wear tights.

    That quote is very telling. I’d bet money they NEED babies around the house so they’re not forced to interact with only each other all day.

  14. Citresse says:

    Under 6 pounds is a small baby. Is Tori a tiny person or deliver too soon maybe?

    • Pinetree13 says:

      Here 5lbs11oz is the cutoff for medical low birth weight. So even if she’s tiny her baby is on the cusp.

    • Matomeda says:

      I’m betting early as she likely had a planned c, due to a history of risky pregnancies. I had preeclampsia and was induced at 38, 38, & 37 weeks. Babies 6lb 4oz, 6lb 9oz and 6lb 1oz and I felt guilty and worried for how small they were. With the last, he struggled to maintain his blood sugar, didn’t lose but couldn’t seem to gain weight for 2 weeks, and ended up on lights. I still feel guilty and responsible for that because I knew my blood pressure was too high and I pushed for delivery (I was afraid I’d keel over, dr wanted more time for baby). And now- he’s 80th percentile and I have heart damage!!! Anyway I hope her little guy isn’t struggling like mine.

  15. minx says:

    These people are depressing.

  16. Tough Cookie says:

    That second pic….dear God…..

  17. Mieke says:

    Thirsty and annoying as hell, unfortunate looking too, but I just can’t hate them. They seem harmless.

  18. Pinetree13 says:

    The quote “it was a total surprise”. Girrrrlllll if it where anyone else I’d believe them. But you? No honey. You didn’t have a surprise at 43. You’re saying that so candy doesn’t get mad. I will buy that it was a surprise to Dean but even then I’m doubtful.

    You want attention. You want an excuse not to work. You want an excuse for dean not to pay child support to his other kids mom. The thirst is strong.

    • anon33 says:

      I get so annoyed with those type of comments. I have used BC EVERY SINGLE TIME I’ve taken part in certain activities. YES, literally, no I’m not lying, every single time. If there is no BC available then we engage in other activities that don’t require it.

      So to me, it’s not a “surprise” unless you’re using BC that fails. We all know sex makes babies. To claim anything else is silly, immature, and dangerous.

    Sorry that name makes a good chili or bacon product.

  20. Egla says:

    I think she has e deal with her mother OR it was in her father’s will: more babies more money. Anyway congrats on the new arrival. Those kids seem happy and healthy at least in the photos and she seems to be a pretty good mother despite the fame whore thing.

  21. jerkface says:

    Good luck, baby.

  22. Tanya says:

    Tori’s planning to rack as many debts as she can muster and when Candy passes on, her inheritance will clean her debts.

    However, she’s banking on the positive. What if Candy leaves her nothing? Or, what if she leaves only the kids something?

    My lord what is that? a window drape? Yeesh!
