Tori Spelling didn't waste any time selling the first photos of her baby girl to OK! magazine. The reality star gave birth on June 9 and already little Stella Doreen is a cover girl. Upon being released from the hospital, Tori and her newborn must have immediately been whisked off to a photo shoot!
In her OK! interview, Tori, who also has a one-year-old son named Liam, reveals that her second pregnancy was quite unexpected since she had been using birth control. "She's a miracle," says the actress. "I was on one pill and wasn't feeling well, so I went off of it. Two days later the doctor put me on another, and on that one day we conceived. It was meant to be!"
When asked if they plan on having any more children, Tori laughs, "We like making babies. I always said I'd be happy having one of each ... but I wouldn't mind having three." Adds hubby Dean McDermott, "Three seems to be the magic number, but you never know with us because we're so wacky and in love and can't keep our hands off each other. We may have a full hockey team." Hmmm ... a little TMI, but if you're dying to know more about Tori, Dean, and their bundle of joy, pick up the new issue of OK! on sale this week.
While I don't know for certain that Tori and Dean made any profit from Stella's pics, I assume that some money exchanged hands since the glossy touts their interview and accompanying photos as a "world exclusive." Of course, Tori isn't the first celebrity to ever cash in on her kid. People reportedly shelled out $1.5 million for shots of Christina Aguilera's baby boy Max earlier this year, while Jennifer Lopez supposedly made a cool $6 million for the first public photos of her newborn twins. That's some serious dough!
National Enquirer Executive Editor Barry Levine told the New York Post that back in 1989, when he was the editor of Star, they bought pics of Lisa Marie Presley's baby for $100,000. "At the time I thought it was outrageous," he says. "Now it's chump change."
