The chef, 52, told Us Weekly exclusively that he was “good” with the size of his family on February 6 at Tapout Fitness in Woodland Hills, where he teaches a boxing class, but went on to admit, “We have so many kids that we have now to enjoy, but I look at [Spelling], and she has this gleam in her eyes, like, ‘I can do more.’”
The Beverly Hills, 90210 alum, 45, added: “We’re happy with our big brood, and they love on each other so much. … It’s so great we have the enjoyment of every age.”
That’s because the actress and her husband share Liam, 11, Stella, 10, Hattie, 7, Finn, 6, and Beau, 23 months. The Gourmet Dad author also shares 21-year-old son, Jack, with his ex-wife Mary Jo Eustace.
In May 2018, the mother of five told Us Weekly exclusively that she and McDermott aren’t quite on the same page when it comes to growing their family.
“I like even numbers [and my kids] keep asking,” the Spelling it Like it Is author revealed at the time. “They all want one more because they want a little baby sister now. But I can’t imagine dad being sane if we have one more. It would push dad over the edge. He’s doing the best he can!”
The couple are doing just fine with five for now. “It’s going amazing,” Spelling said. “You know, we had four kind of back-to-back. I was pregnant for years, and then there was a little break, so now that we have started over basically, Dean always says we got … all of them self-sufficient and then started all over again with Beau. But Beau is going to be the happiest, [most] well-adjusted baby ever because he has four doting brothers and sisters.”
