On March 13th Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott welcomed Liam Aaron Mc Dermott. This week’s issue of Us Magazine has the first photos of Liam along with his parents.
In the interview Tori talks about her water breaking 2 weeks before her due date, having to be induced and the intense pain of the contractions.
“As foolish as this sounds now, I wanted to feel how bad it would hurt. But I think I let the pain go on a little too long before I got the epidural.”
When Liam’s heartbeat started dropping, the actress’ doctor, Dr. Jason Rothbart (also Angelina Jolie‘s Ob-Gyn), explained he needed to perform a Cesarean section.
“I asked Dr. Rothbart if he’d do a good job, and he said, ‘Well, Angelina didn’t complain.’ So I was like, ‘If Angelina let him do a C-section in Africa, I am OK. I felt comforted by that.'”
After 17 hours of labor, Tori gave birth by cesarean section to Liam weighing 6-pound, 6-ounces.
Spelling’s good spirits can also be attributed to another recent significant event: She and her mom, Candy, 61, recently reconciled after a nine-month estrangement. In fact the two reconnected for the first time when Candy showed up at L.A.’s Cedars Sinai Medical Center on March 12 to be with her daughter while she was going into labor with Liam.
“I’m so happy she’s back in my life,” Spelling tells Us. “Having a child puts it all in perspective. Knowing the bond I have with Liam means that I get my mom’s bond with me.”
