The McDermott-Spellng household is getting yet another addition! Tori Spelling announced on Wednesday that she is expecting her fifth child with husband Dean McDermott.
Tori Spelling told PEOPLE that the pregnancy came as a surprise, but that she is incredibly happy with the news and can't wait to add to her family.
It was a total surprise, but we always wanted a big family. I'm really excited... This baby happened at the best time. 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.
Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott are already parents to four children: Liam McDermott, 9, Stella McDermott, 8, Hattie McDermott, 5, and Finn McDermott, 4.

Everything is different now. In a way, this is our first baby in our new relationship. And that is really exciting.
