Tori Spelling is scared of what her children are planning for Mother's Day in America on Sunday (12.05.13).

The former 'Beverly Hills' star - who was named Mother of the Year at an annual luncheon hosted by Cedars-Sinai and the Helping Hand Foundation in Los Angeles on Friday (10.05.13) - admitted she is nervous but excited about the surprise her four children, Liam, six, Stella, four, Hattie, 19 months and Finn, eight months, with husband Dean McDermott, have arranged to mark the special occasion.

The 39-year-old actress turned reality TV star told UsMagazine.com: ''I'm getting a surprise! They said they were making me something and cooking me something, so that scares me and excites me all at the same time!''

Tori is expecting something extra special for her daughter Stella.

She explained: ''Stella calls herself a 'craft-ista' and she's four years old! She plans parties, she bakes, she makes DIY gifts! She's my inspiration!

''Seriously! We craft together at least two to three times a week. It's part of our routine - it's what we like to do together. It's therapeutic for me and I get to spend time with my kids.''

The blonde author, who has lost 45 pounds since giving birth to her youngest son in August, was shocked to be named Mother of the Year.

She said: ''I'm overwhelmed! I'm in awe! When they asked me to be Mother of the Year, at first I was like, 'I don't deserve it!' But then I thought, 'I'm going to go there and take this award on behalf of moms everywhere.' I feel like moms, we're different from other people. We support each other. We don't say, 'Who did that better?' There's no rivalry or jealousy. Moms are one the only groups you'll ever find that's a true community that bands together.''
