Twenty weeks into Spelling’s fourth pregnancy, doctors diagnosed her with a condition known as placenta previa – a condition in which the placenta covers the cervix, leading to massive internal bleeding. She was even at risk for a bleed catastrophic enough to force doctors to terminate her pregnancy.
Fortunately, after enduring nine massive bleeds – and one very close call – Spelling safely welcomed baby Finn Davey McDermott on Aug. 30.
“When they put him in my arms I was like, ‘We made it.’” she tells US. “We have an insane bond. We’ve been through hell and back.”
