Spelling shows baby in magazine shoot

The former Beverly Hills, 90210 star gave birth to Hattie Margaret on 10 October (11) and has now unveiled her little girl to the world in Us Weekly magazine.

In one snap, the proud mum is nose-to-nose with her sleeping infant, while another shot shows Spelling cradling Hattie while sitting next to her husband Dean McDermott and their son Liam, four, and three-year-old daughter Stella.

Spelling also tells the publication about her shock at having another little girl – because she was convinced she was pregnant with a boy.

She recalls, “(I was) 110 per cent sure we were having a boy! When the doctor held her up, he said, ‘You guys were all wrong.’ It was the biggest shock. I never thought girls would run this household. We outnumber the boys!”

The reality TV star then admits becoming a mother for a third time has strengthened her bond with McDermott.

She adds, “The baby wasn’t planned, but it obviously happened for a reason. Knowing we were bringing a third life into the world just enhanced our relationship. The moment I had her, I looked at Dean and fell in love with him all over again.”

The magazine will hit newsstands on Friday (11Nov11).
