Tori Spelling says husband Dean McDermott has been her "rock" throughout her second pregnancy.
The former 'Beverly Hills 90210' star - who already has a 14-month-old son Liam with Dean - says she wouldn't have coped if Dean wasn't by her side.
Tori - who is due to give birth to a baby girl next month - said: "I didn't anticipate how hard it would be physically - having a 14-month-old and being very pregnant. I know there are a lot of single moms out there, God bless them! But I can barely carry Liam. I'm really exhausted, and working a lot. So having Dean there by my side, he's my strength. He's my rock.
"When Liam wakes up at five in the morning, I'm thinking, 'Oh my God...' And before I can even put a foot out of the bed, Dean is up. He's got the bottle in one hand, the diaper in the other. And I just think, 'Oh, I love you!' "
Tori also revealed Dean's involvement in their family life has enabled her to become a better mother.
She added to Modern Mom magazine: "All my girlfriends have husbands who have stepped up too. I think this really empowers women to take her career back, do what she wants to do and still be a great mom and a great wife."
