Although Tori Spelling adores being a mother to a full household – and is one of the lucky women who enjoys the whole pregnancy experience – she realizes that it’s now time to hang up the maternity jeans.
On her ToriSpelling.com website, Tori has been chronicling the dramatic story of her fourth pregnancy and the birth of son Finn. As fans know, she developed serious complications during this time and had to be hospitalized for a time to prevent premature delivery. Finally, at 37 weeks Finn was delivered by scheduled C-section.
The mom-to-be woke on delivery day with mixed emotions. Tori says, “While I was super excited to welcome our newest babe into the family, I was totally caught off-guard by how sad I was that this would be my last morning EVER as a pregnant woman.”
She and husband Dean McDermott knew that they wanted a large family, so it was a given that they tried for more babies after first Liam, then Stella, were born. Third child Hattie came as a happy blessing. Then just a few months after her birth, the couple found out that their hopes of having yet another baby were coming true.
“But with Finn, both Dean and I knew that this was probably it for us in the baby-making department,” Tori says. “Since Finn’s pregnancy was so difficult and dangerous, we knew that if we could make it through this one and make it to the finish line with a healthy and happy baby, that our family would be complete.”
So there’ll be no more bump watches, photo galleries of maternity style, or “How She Lost the Baby Weight in Five Days!” stories for this celebrity mom. It’s a bittersweet realization, but Tori has memories to cherish and four beautiful children to raise.
Besides, in a couple of years, we have a feeling she’ll be more than happy not to have to change diapers anymore.
What about you? If your family is complete, are you a little sad that you’ll never again feel those first exciting kicks?
