Tori Spelling Posts Video of Baby's First Moments

Tori Spelling(NEW YORK) -- After revealing her harrowing ordeal with her last pregnancy, Tori Spelling is now sharing her precious first moments with baby Finn.

Spelling posted a video of the Aug. 30 arrival of her newborn son, Finn Davey McDermott, on her website Tuesday. Clips show Finn opening his eyes for the first time and Spelling holding him after a painful C-section.

“The pregnancy with Finn was tough, and the fact that in the end we were able to bring a healthy and happy baby into this world means more to me and Dean than we can ever express,” the former Beverly Hills, 90210 star wrote on her blog about herself and husband Dean McDermott. “I’m so thrilled that we have these videos from one of the happiest days of our lives.”

But all was not happy leading up to the birth.

The reality star and mother of four recounted for Good Morning America last year how she suffered from complications that threatened her life and the baby’s.

At 20 weeks, the actress was diagnosed with placenta previa, a condition in which the placenta covers the cervix and causes internal bleeding. She was in the hospital for two and a half months, lying flat on her back, unable to care for her other young children.

“I missed Liam’s preschool graduation, and Ella’s fourth birthday party,” Spelling told GMA in December. “Hattie — when she started to crawl and her first words.”

Now Finn is a healthy 6-month-old baby, and Spelling told GMA, “I appreciate every second more with him.”

It’s a Boy for Tori Spelling

Jason LaVeris/FilmMagic(LOS ANGELES) -- It’s a boy and baby number four for Tori Spelling and husband Dean McDermott.

The former Beverly Hills 90210 star-turned-reality-TV-show queen gave birth to son Finn Davey McDermott, in California on Thursday.

 “We are so excited to announce the birth of the newest member of the McDermott family,” Spelling, 39, wrote on her website, along with a photo of the newborn’s hand wrapped around her finger.

Finn, whom Spelling said weighed in at 6 lbs, 6 oz and was 20 in long at birth, joins the couple’s three other children, Liam Aaron, 5, Stella Doreen, 4, and Hattie Margaret, 10 months.

McDermott, 45, has a son, Jack, 13, from a previous marriage.

The couple, married since 2006, announced the pregnancy in March, just months after Spelling gave birth to Hattie.

She told Rachael Ray earlier this month that she was hoping for a boy for baby No. 4.

“We would like a little boy, and Stella … she’s now a middle child and when we told her about the pregnancy she said, ‘I hope it’s a little boy for Liam,’” Spelling said in an interview on Ray’s TV talk show.

Spelling wrote on her website this week about becoming nostalgic as the end of the pregnancy neared, saying this baby would probably be her last.

“As my 4th pregnancy is nearing the end I have bittersweet feelings…there’s so much I will miss,” she wrote.  “I’m guessing this will be my final pregnancy and that brings tears to my eyes.”

The family stars in their own reality show, Home Sweet Hollywood, on Oxygen.

Candy Spelling Wins $90K at Slot Machine

Jason Kempin/Getty Images(LAS VEGAS) -- Don’t feel too bad for Candy Spelling, who earlier this year sold her Los Angeles mansion for $65 million less than her asking price. The widow of TV mogul Aaron Spelling and mother of Tori Spelling recently won $90,000 while playing the slot machines in Las Vegas.

TMZ reported that Spelling and her girlfriends were playing the high limit slots, with machines that cost from $100 to $1000 a spin, at the Bellagio Hotel in Vegas two weeks ago when Spelling hit it big.

But that’s not even her biggest haul from the slots. According to TMZ, Spelling pulled in $200,000 in 2007. A year later, she won $180,000.

In July, Spelling sold her 56,000 square-foot house built by her late husband to 22-year-old British heiress Petra Ecclestone for $85 million. The house was priced at $150 million when Spelling put it on the market two years ago.

Pregnant Tori Spelling in Car Accident

Jason LaVeris/FilmMagic(LOS ANGELES) -- Tori Spelling, who is pregnant with her third child, crashed her car into a school wall while driving her two children to school Monday. The 37-year-old actress and reality star revealed the details of the accident on Twitter.

"Paparazzi chased me w/the kids 2school," Spelling wrote. "I was trying to get away from him and had a pretty big accident. Took down whole wall of school."

But the accident did not deter the photographer from taking pictures.

"He thn STILL got out to try to get pics. 10 school moms chased him away. Wht will it take? Someone dying for paparazzi to stop?"

It appears that neither Spelling, who announced her pregnancy in April, nor her two children, four-year-old Liam and two-year-old Stella, were hurt during the crash. Spelling also indicated she was heading to her doctor.

"Going to dr now to check on baby. I think its just shock," she wrote.

A friend of Spelling told People what happened: "[The photographer] followed her into the driveway of the school. She pulled into the driveway and tried to get away from him. She reversed to leave and then hit the wall."

Spelling's car was slightly banged up. "She had minor damage to her car," the friend told People, "and there's minor damage to the wall at the school."

A spokesman for the Los Angeles Police Department, when contacted by ABC News, was unable to find a report of the incident.

Spelling and her husband Dean McDermott, stars of their own reality show, Tori & Dean: Home Sweet Hollywood, are expecting their third child in the fall.

Last July, McDermott was rushed to the hospital after a motorcycle accident but made a full recovery.
