The longtime couple is already parents to Liam, 9, Stella, 8, Hattie, 5 and Finn, 4. McDermott is also father to Jack, 18, from his previous marriage to Mary Jo Eustace. Now the family is expanding once more, and the entire brood posed for a photo shoot in which Spelling shows off her bump.
“It was a total surprise But we always wanted a big family. I’m really excited,” Spelling tells People. Still, she acknowledges that the unexpected baby joy has the family hitting the reset button. She explains to the magazine, “For the first time this year, they’re all in school. So it’s like, wow. We’re basically starting over.”
The new addition also marks the couple’s first child since a cheating scandal nearly tore their marriage apart. As Gossip Cop has reported, McDermott had a one night stand in 2013, devastating Spelling. The aftermath was chronicled on her Lifetime reality series, “True Tori.”
They ultimate worked through the infidelity, and celebrated their 10th wedding anniversary this past May. Last month, Gossip Cop debunked a tabloid story falsely claiming Spelling was posing as other women online to catch McDermott cheating. And days later, we also busted another tabloid tale that wrongly alleged Spelling was drunk at an event.
Clearly, neither article was true. Gossip Cop now congratulates Spelling and McDermott on their wonderful pregnancy news.
