According to Goddess, Just call Tori Spelling “Fertile Myrtle.” The former “90210” star announced on her website Friday that she is pregnant with her fourth child — just five months after giving birth to daughter Hattie! “Dean, Liam, Stella, Hattie, and I are beyond thrilled to announce that another little McDermott is on the way!”
Spelling, 38, wrote, accompanying an adorable photo of her three children’s hands on her already-growing belly. “We feel truly blessed that another angel has found us.”
The fact that Spelling is expecting again isn’t especially shocking — after all, she and husband Dean McDermott have always said they wanted four kids (they also have Liam, 5, and Stella, 3). But the actress was just pregnant with baby Hattie, whom she gave birth to in October.
Apparently, some women are especially fertile in the weeks and months following childbirth, and Spelling seems to fall into this category. She and McDermott, 45, have been very open about their desire to have another child right after Hattie — even planning for it before she was born.
“As soon as I saw [the pregnancy test] was positive and it was a pregnancy, we both thought ‘We need to have a fourth’ — at the same time,” the actor said last year. Added Spelling, “People say, ‘Oh my God, it’s utter chaos after two.’ But it’s not, it’s great. You lost your mind after the second one, so … the third, fourth, and fifth, it’s like you’re so far gone, it’s just kind of the same.”
But the couple — who have their own Oxygen reality show, “Tori and Dean: Home Sweet Hollywood” — have also said four kids will likely be their max. “I’m 38. I’m not going to be able to have that many more,”
Spelling acknowledged a few months ago. McDermott, who also has a 13-year-old son Jack from his first marriage, even hinted he may get a vasectomy to ensure they remain a family of six. “Once we have a fourth, I think that’s really kind of decision time whether to shut it down.”

According to Reuters, A pregnant Jessica Simpson has taken a page from Demi Moore’s celebrity playbook in a nude cover photo for the April issue of Elle magazine, and the singer and actress has confirmed the baby will be a girl.
In the cover photo released by the magazine on Wednesday, Simpson can be seen covering her breasts with her right arm and hand, and cradling her full abdomen with her left.
She wears rings and dangling earrings, and her blond hair flows over her shoulder and chest.
A photo inside shows Simpson standing as her fiancé and the father of her unborn child, pro football player Eric Johnson, kisses her belly.
Simpson, 31, revealed in October that she was pregnant with her first child, after dating Johnson since May 2010.
She first rose to fame at age 19 with her debut album “Sweet Kisses” in 1999. She married singer Nick Lachey of boy band 98 Degrees in 2002, and the two starred together in a reality TV show about being newlyweds. They divorced in 2006.
As it happens, Lachey revealed this week that his current wife, TV personality Vanessa Lachey (formerly Minnillo), is pregnant with the couple’s first child.
Simpson’s cover photo on Elle is similar to an attention-grabbing nude pose actress Demi Moore, who was pregnant at the time, struck on the cover of Vanity Fair in 1991. The Moore picture taken by renowned photographer Annie Leibovitz caused a controversy at the time, but since then a number of other pregnant stars have posed for similar shots.
The April issue of Elle featuring Simpson officially hits newsstands on March 20. Inside the magazine, she reveals that she is pregnant with a girl, confirming previous speculation.
Simpson, whose most famous acting role was in the 2005 film “The Dukes of Hazard,” launched a highly successful clothing, handbag and shoes collection in 2007.
