Tori Spelling, as you may have heard by now, is pregnant with her fifth child with husband Dean McDermott.
And if you haven’t heard about it by now, then settle in, because it looks like she’s not going to stop talking about it anytime soon.
We’ve got some new excerpts from her apparently lengthy interview with People, and Tori is opening up about all sorts of things.
And consider us concerned.
But let’s start off with the easy stuff, all right?
“We had to start from scratch,” she said, “and we made the conscious decision to tough it out and get through it. I found my voice, and Dean lessened his anger. I wouldn’t change what happened because if we hadn’t opened up those lines of communication, maybe we wouldn’t be here today.”
And if they hadn’t opened up those lines of communications, they wouldn’t have gotten a reality show and a big ol’ pay check, if you catch our drift.
But no, it’s nice that Tori and Dean were able to salvage their marriage, especially since, according to Tori, their love is so special.
“Our relationship hit the ground running,” she explained. “We never stopped for a second. We fell madly in love and made these four little beings out of so much love. But we never had that time. When we’re in retirement, we’ll travel the world together.”
But Dean, who will turn 50 next month, hilariously added “I’m going to be too old! Maybe I’ll get senior citizen discounts.”
Considering that he’ll be nearing 70 when this new kid presumably leaves the nest, yeah, that’s a safe bet.
Tori, and this is where things start to get sketchy, also discussed what it’s like to be pregnant at 43.
She said, “I know I should feel like ‘Oh, I’m old.’ But I have more energy now. It’s not an option not to. And I’m so crazed running around with four little ones under 10 that I don’t have time to worry about the things I did the first time.”
“I used to have a fear of standing in front of the microwave. Now I stand to the side, but I still have to get things done.”
The interview takes a turn for the heartbreaking when she touches on her last pregnancy, the one with her four-year-old son, Finn.
During the pregnancy, Tori was diagnosed with placenta previa, a life-threatening condition in which the placenta covers the cervix. She’s said that she and Finn almost didn’t survive the ordeal, and that she was in the hospital for ten weeks and on bed rest for four months because of it.
With this pregnancy, Tori said “Once we found out I was pregnant, we didn’t get excited until we knew I didn’t have placenta previa again. With Finn, everything that could have gone wrong went wrong. And we knew my life could potentially be in danger again.”
“The thought of my four children not having a mother was not something we were okay with.”
Thankfully, it sounds like Tori’s pregnancy is healthy, and that she and Dean are very happy and just a little shocked.
It could be worse, you know.
