Tori Spelling and husband Dean McDermott are adding another baby to their large family – Tori’s expecting their fifth child together!

Tori and Dean, who have gone through their marital ups and down, have been married 10 years, and are parents to Liam, 9, Stella, 8, Hattie, 5, and Finn, 4. Dean has an 18-year-old son, Jack, from a previous relationship.

Tori told People, “It was a total surprise,” adding, “But we always wanted a big family. I’m really excited.”

She added that the while unexpected, they will have some exciting new adventures ahead, explaining, “Dean was saying, ‘We just got Finn out of diapers; I thought we were in the clear!’ For the first time this year, they’re all in school, so it’s like, wow. We’re basically starting over.”

Tori continued, “This baby happened at the best time,” adding, “Nothing is ever perfect, but I’m so madly in love with my husband and with our kids. The idea of adding to that is such a blessing.”
