Back in March of 2017, Tori Spelling welcomed her fifth child.
Fans were somewhat surprised by Spelling's decision to expand her family, not only because she's 44 years old, but because her extreme financial difficulties have been well-documented in recent years.
But over one year later, Spelling and husband Dean McDermott are holding things together, and it looks as though their relationship might actually be on the upswing for the first time in a very long time.
So we suppose it should come as no surprise that Tori is talking about having another kid.
“You know, I do, I like even numbers, they keep asking, they all want one more because they want a little baby sister now,” Spelling recently told Us Weekly.
Fortunately, she seems well aware of the fact that bringing another child into the world would likely send Dean running back to the probably-fictitious Emily Goodhand.
“But I can’t imagine dad being sane if we have one more. It would push dad over the edge. He’s doing the best he can!”
And Dean would have every reason to lose it if Tori announced her desire to get pregnant again, right?
After all the Spellings are broke.
Not celebrity broke, mind you, but regular folk, coupon-clipping broke.
The situation is so bad that McDermott was nearly arrested for unpaid child support.
But believe it or not, those financial issues might actually help motivate Tori and Dean to welcome yet another child.
Mary Jo Eustace has a son by McDermott, and she says she and her boy both expect Tori and Dean to pop out another tyke.
"I think my son would not be surprised if they had another one," Eustace says.
“I wouldn’t be surprised if she had another one."
And why wouldn't she be shocked?
Well, it seems the payout that Tori and Dean will eventually receive from the trust of her mother, Candy Spelling, is entirely dependent on how many children they have.
“So, there’s incentive there," says Eustace.
As for life with five kids under one roof, Tori says it's a dream come true:
“It’s going amazing. You know, we had four kind of back-to-back. I was pregnant for years, and then there was a little break, so now that we have started over basically, Dean always says we got all the amount of diapers, all of them self-sufficient, and then started all over again with Beau,” Spelling told Us.
“But Beau is going to be the happiest, well-adjusted baby ever because he has four doting brothers and sisters," she adds.
"We joke, he hasn’t started walking yet and we’re like, ‘Well why should he? Everyone carries him everywhere.’ And he knows too.”
Why walk when others will carry you?
There's a metaphor for Tori's financial situation in there somewhere.
