Tori Spelling’s Son: “Mommy & Daddy I Know You Have Sex!”

Tori Spelling, 38, has a lot on her plate with baby No. 4 on the way! But along with managing her busy life, the reality TV mama also tackled a “tricky topic” on As it turns out, her 5-year-old son Liam has started talking about the birds and the bees, and Tori recalls her boy’s observations,

Mommy and daddy I know you have sex!” Liam says. “I’m gonna hide under your bed and videotapes it and then you’ll say ‘Liam you’re right, we have sex.’”

Tori continues, “It’s hard to keep a straight face around this little guy.”

The Beverly Hills, 90210 alum then asks fans, “How old were your kids when you had to tackle this tricky topic?”

Any advice for Tori?

    Id say this has a lot to do with the environment he’s being brought up in. If he had older siblings I’d blame them…but his older brother isn’t really in the picture on a regular basis is he? My 6 1/2 year old has no clue yet about sex …etc. She asked us once where babies come from and we asked her where she thought they came from and she came up with some fun story about magic and God..etc. We ended up telling her that God puts the baby in there. She’ll learn the facts soon enough but for now, at 6 years old, this is just as it should be in my opinion.

      How do you know that he doesn’t spend time with his older brother? Do you know this family personally?

  • Danielled

    That is so funny cause my 6 year old daughter came home from school yesterday talking about she knows I have sex too… I honestly didn’t know what to say, i wasn’t expecting this for a few more years…

  • Tiffany

    He’s definitely spending time with people who don’t know how to have appropriate conversations around a 5yr old…smh

  • Isabella

    The more “funny” stories she tells, the more I dislike her. I have no idea why she finds it so cute that her 5-year-old is so vulgar. First she bragged about the profanity he uses and now this. It’s not cute, and it’s not funny. It’s disturbing.

      I totally agree with you! Unacceptable. Let them be kids for as long as possible. They have a lifetime to be an adult.

    • Hailei

      And you are hypocrite as hell. Shut the eff up, you perfect, clean environmental moms, just shut up. You’re either huge hypocrites or have no idea what’s happening around you. Your delusional. The only thing that’s disturbing me about this site is that each time I wanna make a comment, I get to also read the most disgustingly hypocrite opinions ever . Some of you guys, all you do is criticize! Every single thing! Over and over! Stop it already, you do not have hold of the absolute truth. About life or about raising a child.
      The most ridiculous of facts, you just have to break it, criticize the parents and tell how you do so much better .
      Just stop already cause you’re incredibly annoying and you’re making me sick!

      • Isabella

        You should go look up the word hypocrite because you clearly don’t understand the meaning of that word. If you did understand the meaning of the word then you would realize several things 1) there is nothing hypocritical about what we’ve said – that line of reasoning doesn’t even make sense and 2) you are the biggest hypocrite of all here in the comments sections. You’re spreading your venom everywhere while lecturing others about how they are too negative.

        Um… did you honestly expect this website, which is directed mostly at Moms, to have no negative criticism or extreme hypocrisy?


        No, like SERIOUSLY?

    Heh, I find is halirious. I knew what sex was when I was 5. It wasn’t a big deal, it was explained to me when I asked how babies were made. In my opinion the earlier children learn about sex (appropriately); the more educated and protected they will be when they actually start doing it themselves.

  • Anonymous

    I didn’t know what sex was until I was at least 13…5 seems way too young to know what actual sex is……

    • a5

      and where exactly did you grow up?! neverland?!
      i mean: i have a little borther (14) and he knew about it way earlier. you can’t start sex education to early! that doesn’t mean you have to show them porn!! an what was mentioned about god brings the babies? really? you do realize that you’re lying to your children right?!
      but maybe the attitude to this topic is way diffrent here in europe….

    okay knowing about sex at 5 isn’t uncommon but saying you’ll hide under a bed and video tape it? I think this kid is destined to make porno movies! yikes!

    My 6 yr old nephew wrote, “I have sex” next to his diary of a whimpy kid coloring page. We couldn’t believe what we were reading. We asked him where he heard it. He said school. We asked him what he thought it was and he said, “I don’t know I just heard someone at school say it!” We left it at that. bc we figured he would forget about it soon anyways.

    When my friend was 6 she asked her mom where babies came from. So her mom told her and felt the need to explain every detail about sex and making babies bc she didn’t want to lie to her daughter. Understandable but then her daughter decided to go around to the whole class and whisper it into our ears. So needless to say my mom had a phone call to make to this little girls mother about making sure her conversations stay between her and her daughter lol.

    Kids can be quite funny and they are lke sponges absorbing everything around them so it’s not surprising w/ the amount of sex going on in the Dermott household that Liam knows the word. But as long as he doesn’t know details of what it is I say no harm done!

    I think kids these day are smarter n knows more than they need to…. It’s all over T.V. And school…. my 7 yr old granddaughter came home from school and told us kids was saying ppl is gay n asked us what did that mean…yes 5 used to be to young but not anymore … I think if they are talking about it you should sit down and have a talk with them in a childs way not has you would do if they was 10 …….. That will also give you the opening to tell your kids if anyone touches you in the wrong way what to do…. That’s how we did my granddaughter they need that talk no matter what age they are…

    I can’t imagine letting my 5 year old anywhere near a little boy who curses and jokes about videotaping his parents having sex. But I’m not sure what’s more disturbing – a child who behaves like this or the parents who find it so amusing……

  • Anonymous

    the most disturbing thing is the hiding under the bed and taping. that is not normal. that is a creep in the making. if the parents think it is cute and do not nip that type of behavior/talking while he is young.
    but then again — like father like son.

    • ZaraB

      My first thought was that she’s sewing the seeds for the mysterious release of a sex tape!! Though I can’t think of many sex tapes that would have less appeal, personally…

    Ummm….yeah….that’s not cute. I woudn’t have even told anybody my five year old said that. A five year old shouldn’t even know that word exists.

  • sassygirl45

    The only thing I can say is to be honest with your kids.

  • Anonymous

    I dislike them all. Such a rude family.

  • Anonymous

    This is very disturbing. Children at that age shouldn’t even know that word and then say videotape it??? My guess is that THEY probably talk about having “sex” with each other in front of their kids and who knows maybe he walked in on them. I don’t know why she thinks this is cute, like she’s proud of it.

  • Mel in STL

    Isabella, I couldn’t agree with you more! I used to really like Tori, but any more she just tells these stories that she thinks are cute or funny and really they are sad. Every time she says something is from Liam you just get the feeling it’s not him saying it, it’s HER. We have five children and have always been open and honest with them about all subjects, but never once would any of them at five years old even understand what videotaping sex was much less say they were going to do it!!! (Or what kicking someone in the balls meant…another story Liam supposedly said.) She is getting more and more out there.

    Tori and her husband seem to be so sex obsessed. I stopped watching their show awhile ago. I find them disgusting.

  • Anonymous

    Advice for Tori? Maybe to slow down having babies and concentrate on the kids they already have. How horrible to be a kid and have every single thing you ever say or do put out there for the whole world to read about. They might be kids, but they are still people and deserve some respect too. So selfish to exploit your kids just so that you can stay in the spotlight. Why would you even want anyone to know your kid said that??!!!

      Yeah, because I’m sure Tori Spelling is coming to a celebrity baby blog for her parenting advice. ::eyeroll::

    people remember kids usually dont add the deep meaning we add to the words they dont carry prejudice, to him sex is natural and besides he dont have any idea of how actually sex is, his definition is far more simple and innocent that ours.

    stop hiding your prejudices against anythign relathing to sex of morality , to him is probably just a game like catching someone eating cookie that they dont supposed to eat as simple as that.his 5 years old people not a creep neither a sick just a little kid curious like all kids are.and not he is not to young to know about it , i dont know why people treat sex like a sin is natural ; you and me we are here because someone have sex as simple as that.

    althought i agree i seem to me that is a subject that should be private no need to exposed the child to other people.

  • Anonymous

    He’s just a child! His comments are so innocent, how can anyone read in to what he said? My 5 year old comes out with some very very weird things. She picks up words from school and has no idea of their meaning, including Sex, and she does not understand that some of the things she can say with those words would be creepy coming from an adult. Kids are kids. They pick up on everything, no matter how careful you are.

    • Sujinah

      His comments are innocent ? Really? So when he called the paparazzis bitches, it was all innocent? Oh please. I know kids pick up things. But in this family, seems like they thing it is cute to let the kid curse and say weird things.

      • Anonymous

        as i say before kids dont add the same meaning to the words a lot of times they are not sure what they mean ,usually kids use this words because people response towards are very interesting and funny . if you are 5 and say bitch you will look a adult making the most amazing faces or making a fuzz and kids are action -reaction creatures,so maybe his comments are only probe that he has realized words hold a great power and one that is fun to use.

        his 5 far away from doing anything with a intention to hurt in fact he is very unawared of other people perceptions about his actions.

    • Isabella

      Yeah, but they’re not careful. They talk about vulgar things in front of him. They use profanity in front of him. They expose him to a lot of things that aren’t appropriate for five-year-olds to be hearing about. And then Tori turns it into a story that she tells millions of people about on her blog. The poor child has no innocence and no privacy.

  • Danielle

    omg what a bunch of prudes haha I thought it was the British that was supposed to be uptight. “shouldn’t know the word” (what sex?)
    What age a child knows about sex and how babies are made depends on the individual child, which is why i feel it’s the parents job to explain these things not schools as they know the maturity of their child best, but that’s a whole other discussion. Some 5 yr olds don’t know and aren’t interested, considering he has several siblings it’s no surprise that the subject has come up.
    I did find the videotaping part strange but who knows what goes on in little ones minds to how he thought of that but i am sure it isn’t as perverse as everyone is making out.

    The more Tori shares these stories, the more she seems to make them up. She knows how to get some publicityl, and to get people talking

  • TT I wonder was it a nature channel or one of his friends who told him? Thankfully, that sounds kid-like/innocent, rather than suspicious or like he’s been exposed to something

    i think she saids a lie, because she wants more fame, like alicia silverston etc…she love that now, we r talking about her

    she has talked about sex concerning animals to her kids on her show…

    I hate saying negative things about kids and in 99% of the cases there’s no need to but I think this boy is creepy and I suspect he’s gonna be that way when hitting his teens, too.

  • eww

    people always write how their kids are so adorable. ugh. they are so not! and this is anything but. and yeah, makes him sound creepy and lewd.

    Wow, this site used to be sooo fun and so cool..but NOW it’s just filled with negative, conservative, judgemental PERFECT people making snide comments. I know when all of you “PERFECTS” stub your toe you say “darn or dag nabbit” and not anything else, right? *sigh* I wish I had the energy to give a sh*t.
