Things are getting a bit crowded in Tori Spelling’s bed.
The actress, 39, posted a Vine video to her Twitter account Sunday, giving followers an inside look at her family’s nighttime ritual.
“This is how we sleep ” she wrote alongside a video that shows shirtless husband Dean McDermott in bed with dog Mitzi (watch below). Off to the side, the clip gives a quick peek at two of their four children – Liam, 6, Stella, 4, Hattie, 18 months, and Finn, almost 8 months old – fast asleep while the family chicken, Coco, lounges nearby.
Why the crowded room? “I believe that everyone does better with a playmate!” Spelling said in 2011 of why she loves adding to her animal brood, which has over the years included dog Minnie, pig Hank, two baby chicks and a goat named Totes McGoat. Hope she has some earplugs in there, too!
