Tori Spelling has built a very lucrative career off of having kids and making terrible decisions, so it should come as no surprise to anyone that a choice Tori Spelling made yesterday was to post a picture of a “bump” with the caption “No. 6.” Yesterday was April 1st, so a whole lot of people looked at Tori and wondered if she needed a refresher on the definition of the day. It’s April Fools’ Day, not Act a Fool Day, and that’s what some people accused Tori of when she posted that pregnancy announcement.
Here’s what appears to be 47-year-old Tori’s announcement that she’s currently pregnant with her and Dean McDermott’s sixth child (they share Liam, 14, Stella, 12, Hattie, 9, Finn, 8, and Beau, 4):

If Tori had picked any other day to announce a pregnancy, I’d still have questions, but it would be more like, how did Tori get pregnant? Wasn’t Dean filming in Canada three to four months ago? Did The Deaner have some trouser DNA smuggled across the border in a sealed Tom Horton’s cup packed in dry ice? But I wouldn’t be asking the important questions, because the point of Tori’s post might have been to prank us with a pregnancy announcement.
Most people understand that the April Fools’ pregnancy announcement prank was stale the first time they saw it on Facebook back in 2007. Generally, most people (accent on the most) know that pregnancy announcements are off-limits on April 1st. Save it for the 2nd. Tori didn’t do that, of course, and now the comments on her pregnancy announcement post are a mix of people congratulating her, asking if it’s a joke, or roasting her. Popculture.com points out that several people suggested to Tori that her post is cruel if it is a joke, and that numerous people noted that anyone who has experienced a miscarriage would probably feel like shit if her announcement turned out to be a lie. They’re dragging her over on Twitter too.
@torispelling I hope you are truly pregnant because if you are making an April Fools joke about it, it’s a slap in the face to women everywhere who are trying to get pregnant

Tori has yet to confirm if her post was a prank, or if she really is pregnant with her sixth child. If it was her attempt at a joke, at least she’s got an apology all ready to go that she can recycle. But if it is a joke, how in the world did Tori think that was an appropriate prank to pull on April Fools’ Day? Pranks are supposed to be fun and funny, not mean and lazy. She should have pulled an actual prank, like posting a picture of a Photoshopped American Express bill with a $0 balance. You know, something we can all laugh at!
