Tori Spelling blamed the media for the April Fool’s pregnancy prank on Friday. The comment was criticized by online commentators for being insensitive to couples who have lost babies or are unable to have children.
“Every week, magazines and news media ask me if I am pregnant. To clarify this fact, I am not.” She said in a lengthy explanation after Spelling was severely cracked down for falsely announcing that she was expecting her sixth child. The explanation was posted to Instagram the next day.
“The truth is that after the birth of my fifth child, my body did not rebound like before. That was when the “other” pregnancy problems started.”
The former “Beverly Hills, 90210” star added that if you are not in the “public view”, it is difficult to understand the feeling of being publicly humiliated.
She continued: “I feel that I must constantly defend my body. On the contrary, I should be honored for the miracle that it gave me five lives.”
Spelling, 47, was immediately criticized by commentators for her fake baby news.
One follower commented: “I hope this is not an April Fool’s joke, because for those who have lost their babies, this is really horrible.”
“If this is an April Fool’s Day joke, then you will be grilled so badly,” another reporter pointed out.
In her notes, she added that she “will never deliberately lose the fun of losing a child or not being able to hold a child”, but she just wants to “turn over the table” in the media.
She continued: “They keep creating ridiculous and often hurtful stories about me, my body, and my family.” “For those of you who are injured, I heard it. I love you. I welcome you. Story, I will try my best to support you.”
Although many people made supportive comments, others were less sympathetic, and one of them suggested that she could “punish” the press in another way.
Her husband, Dean McDermott, fired back: “How do you advise her to do this because you seem to be an expert in public relations?”
The couple are the parents of daughters Stella and Hattie and sons Liam, Beau and Finn. McDermott is also the father of his previously married son Jack.
After giving birth to her son Beau in 2017, Spelling said she would be “open” to having another child.
“All my kids have their little pair, so I will open my heart again,” Spelling said with a smile, “Hey, if people call you Brady Bunch, you have to finish Brady Bunch.”
She added: “I forgot how much I love getting pregnant. I like this connection. You will never be alone.”
