Tori Spelling and her husband Dean McDermott have announced the birth of their fifth child.
The 90210 actress, 43, and her husband – who already have Liam, nine, Stella, eight, Hattie, five, and Finn, four, together – are “over the moon” to have welcomed Beau Dean into the world.
Speaking to People magazine, the actress said: “We are over the moon in love with baby Beau.”
The American star added: “He is a true blessing and his brothers and sisters were overjoyed to meet him! We are all truly grateful for our big beautiful and healthy family.”
Tori gave birth to Beau at 1.48pm on Thursday afternoon, with the little tot weighing 5lbs and 12oz and measuring 18.5 inches long.
Tori shared a picture of the new arrival’s hand on Twitter to announce the happy news, writing beside it:

The couple, who got married in 2006 and renewed their vows in 2010, announced they were expecting their fifth child in October and admitted it was a “surprise”.
Tori said: “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.”
The blonde beauty suffered placenta praevia while she was pregnant with Finn, causing problems with delivery, as the condition means the neck of the uterus is blocked by the placenta.
And 50-year-old Dean – who also has a son Jack, 18, from a previous relationship – hailed the pregnancy as a “miracle”.
He said: “The doctor said that considering everything that happened the last time, this is a miracle baby that Tori got pregnant and that it’s OK.”
