Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott are currently expecting their fifth child, and that’s … great? Exciting? Something good?

It’s kind of hard to say.

Babies are wonderful and all, but Tori and Dean are not, and there are a lot of things about this pregnancy that just seem a little off.

Take, for instance, the fact that Tori and Dean are incredibly in debt.

They owe the government over $250,000 in taxes, and Tori was very recently sued for nearly $40,000 after failing to make her credit card payments.

Throw in the general debt they’ve been in for years now, the debt they got from not working and living well beyond their means, and it seems like a miracle they’re able to care for the four children they already have.

But sure, a fifth kid won’t be a big deal. Sounds like a great plan.

And, according to this new report, that’s exactly what Tori’s pregnancy is: a plan.

A source close to Tori and Dean told OK! magazine that the two of them planned the pregnancy “as a way to get back on their feet financially.”

Adorably, the source added that “She’s gloating that she’s saved their family.”

It makes sense, in a twisted sort of way. Tori could get interviews upon interviews with this pregnancy, and if she plays her cards right, she could even get another reality show.

She’s no stranger to exploiting her family for cash and attention, so she’s just doing what she knows, we suppose.

Oh, and speaking of Tori exploiting her family, the source also claims that she’s planning on hitting up her super rich mom for money as part of her master plan.

Specifically, “Tori knows hat when it comes to her grandchildren, Candy will cough up the cash.”

Candy must be so proud.

And while all this totally makes sense, and while it’s very easy to imagine Tori planning on bringing a child into the world for monetary gain, she’s not admitting to it, at least not anytime soon.

In her pregnancy announcement, she even opened by saying “It was a total surprise!”

Tori is 43 years old, she’s the mother to four young children, and she still doesn’t get how pregnancy works?

It’s all a little hard to believe.

So yes, maybe she did get pregnant on purpose in hopes of getting a nice little payday. Or maybe it really was unplanned and she’s just prepared to take advantage of the situation going on in her uterus.

Either way, here we are, in 2016, talking about Tori Spelling — she’s already won.
