Tori Spelling wants more children.

The actress and husband Dean McDermott - who have son Liam, two, and daughter Stella, 19 months - plan to extend their family in future, but not for a while as Tori needs a "break".

Dean - who also has an 11-year-old son Jack from a previous relationship - said: "We'll definitely have more, it's just a matter of when. I'm giving T a break! I've had her pregnant for the past two years. It's just great to enjoy time with our children now, because they grow so fast and we're so busy. We want to take as much time with them as we can."

Because Liam and Stella are so close in age, the couple think it is important to have a break before having more children because the children are currently so "challenging".

Tori explained: "So often people say the hardest stage is when they're newborns, but I think right now is most challenging. They're now developing their personalities, and they have the ability to challenge you. You have to be on your toes with answers in their formative years, and you have to be careful of how you answer questions, or handle situations. They're into everything, and with two that are basically the same age, we want to wait a bit before we decide on a third."
