Tori Spelling and husband Dean McDermott welcomed their first child together, a son, on Tuesday.
Liam Aaron McDermott weighed 6 pounds, 6 ounces, according to the couple’s rep. He was born in a Los Angeles hospital.
The baby’s middle name is a tribute to Tori’s late father, legendary TV producer Aaron Spelling, who died in June.
“I am ready, ready, ready to meet my little man!” Tori, 33, said last month.
Tori and Dean revealed in December that they were expecting a boy. “Little boys are a ton of fun,” Tori said at the time. “We play tunes for him and watch him kick. He already loves the Dixie Chicks! We went to their concert and he kicked the whole time.”
This is the first child for Tori; Dean, 40, has a son, Jack, 8, with ex-wife Mary Jo Eustace.
Dean and Tori met in the summer of 2005 while in Canada filming the TV movie Mind Over Murder and tied the knot in Fiji the following May.
The couple have already set up a nursery decorated in turquoise and chocolate brown, says Jo Gartin of Love Luck and Angels, who planned their baby shower for 50 friends last month in West Hollywood. At the event, Tori happily let her friends rub her belly. “I’ve loved being pregnant, but I’m ready to give birth,” she shared with a laugh. “I can’t wait to be a mom and hold this little baby in my arms.”
Her son arrives just as the new mother is reconciling with her own mom, Candy Spelling, after a long estrangement.
Plus, the new parents also have another baby to look after – their newly renovated bed and breakfast, Chateau La Rue, in Fallbrook, Calif., about 100 miles southeast of Los Angeles. The inn, named after Tori’s pug Mimi La Rue, also serves as the focus of the couple’s new reality show, Tori & Dean: Inn Love, debuting on the Oxygen network on March 20.
