Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott Welcome a Boy

by in Celebrity Babies, Dean McDermott, Tori Spelling

Congratulations to Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott on the safe arrival of their little boy this evening.

Liam Aaron McDermott, who was born in a Los Angeles hospital, weighed 6 pounds, 6 ounces, according to the couple’s rep.

“They’re all really happy and everybody’s resting now,” the rep tells People. “Tori and the baby are healthy.”

The baby’s middle name is a tribute to Spelling’s late father, legendary TV producer Aaron Spelling, who died in June.

“I am ready, ready, ready to meet my little man!” Spelling, 33, told PEOPLE last month.

Spelling and McDermott revealed to People in December that they were expecting a boy. “Little boys are a ton of fun,” Spelling 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 baby for Tori and second for Dean, who has a son Jack, 8 with ex-wife Mary-Jo Eustace.

McDermott and Spelling 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, Spelling happily let her friends rub her belly. “I’ve loved being pregnant, but I’m ready to give birth,” she told PEOPLE with a laugh. “I can’t wait to be a mom and hold this little baby in my arms.”

We wish them good luck!!
