Tori Spelling has a ''new appreciation'' for nature.

The former 'Beverly Hills 90210' actress feels more in touch with the great outdoors after spending the last four months of her pregnancy in and out of hospital and on bed rest before giving birth to her son Finn Davey in August and now treasures spending time with her children.

Tori - who also has children, Liam, six, Stella, four, and Hattie, 19 months, with her husband Dean McDermott - said: ''I was never an outdoors girl but I spent so much time in bed the past year I have a new appreciation for nature. Working out is not my specialty but walking or hiking with my kids is sacred to me.

''I do physical stuff with my kids all the time. Every day I'm like, 'What do you want to do?' and they'll be like, 'Let's play soccer' Besides that we go on walks. We have a lake near our home so we don't even go to a trail.

''I put the babies in a double wide stroller and bring an extra for when Liam or Stella gets tired. We walk two or three miles.''

The 39-year-old star was excited to interact with her kids again after recovering from giving birth to Finn, especially their fun pillow fights.

She added to Us Weekly magazine: ''What I looked forward to after recovery was the first day I could lift Hattie out of her crib in the morning, since I barely held her the first year of her life.

''It still hurts to hold her but it's worth it. She's such a mama's girl now. And Liam and Stella couldn't wait until I could have pillow fights. I'm happy to say I can officially have pillow fights again.''
