It's baby No. 5 for Tori and Dean

Reality TV stars Tori Spelling and her husband, Dean McDermott, just announced the arrival of their new son, Beau Dean. (Maybe they like the BoDeans — we have no clue.)

Beau Dean is the couple's fifth child. We're dizzy just typing "fifth child." The other four are Liam, 9; Stella, 8; Hattie, 5; and Finn, 4. Whew. Excuse us while we lie down with a cool washcloth over our eyes and a gin and tonic on the bedside table.

Spelling posted a picture of their new son's tiny fingers on Twitter:

This pregnancy took Spelling and McDermott by surprise. Like, major, jaw-hitting-the-floor surprise. The couple has been notoriously plagued by marital troubles and financial problems over the years, and a new baby was reportedly not in the plan.

Spelling took the news in stride, though: "[W]e always wanted a big family...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."

Mission accomplished! Beau arrived on Thursday afternoon, weighing in at 5 pounds, 12 ounces and measuring 18.5 inches long — definitely smaller than the family's porcine friend Nutmeg. We're guessing Beau eats less than Nutmeg too.
