Tori Spelling Reveals She Almost Died During Childbirth

Tori Spelling has just debuted her brand new son Finn Davey McDermott on the cover of Us Weekly, but more than her adorable bundle of joy is her harrowing health scare she went through to have him.

We all heard about Tori’s emergency hospitalization after Finn’s birth, but we didn’t know that she was in the hospital for 10 weeks prior to his birth and on bed-rest for 4 months.

Twenty weeks into Spelling’s pregnancy, she was diagnosed with something called placenta previa – a condition where the placenta covers the cervix, causing tons of internal bleeding.

Tori kept her struggle a secret from fans and was afraid of dying, “I just remember thinking, I can’t leave three children behind,” she revealed.

Apparently her condition was caused in part because she got pregnant with Finn just one month after giving birth to her third child, Hattie.

Fortunately, Tori gave birth to Finn safely, but three weeks later, her C-section scars burst open and she was rushed back to the hospital.

She is now safe at home and out of the hospital and remembers the moment she met her son Finn, “When they put him in my arms I was like, 'We made it.''" she tells the magazine, "We have an insane bond. We've been through hell and back."
