No, they aren’t expecting again just yet, but the two do think of their bed and breakfast Chateau La Rue as baby No. 2. As seen on their Oxygen reality show, Tori & Dean: Inn Love, the couple run the business themselves — a responsibility that requires a lot of invested time and effort.
“The hardest part is that having a bed and breakfast is like having another child,” Dean tells OK! at the Betsey Johnson Fashion Show in New York City. “It’s nine to five, two, four and seven. It takes a lot of love and a lot of care and discipline. That’s what’s the hardest, just the hours that you have to put into it. And the property is so beautiful you just want to hang out and enjoy it, but you’ve got to work because you have guests to take care of.”
Although the work is tiring, the couple has no plans of slowing down. A third season of the show is hopefully in the works and so is a Chateau La Rue global franchise, perhaps starting in Dean’s beloved Scotland. Could this be the next Hilton?
But it’s not all about world domination — Dean, 40, always finds time to make his wife feel special. "I’m always doing little romantic things," he reveals. "I think bringing your wife breakfast in bed, even if it’s during the week and it’s toast and coffee, is romantic and caring. Breakfast in bed is breakfast in bed."
And no doubt Tori appreciates it, as she also does literally work at home with Dean and Liam. "We’re always together, so there’s not a better job that I could have."
As for motherhood, the 34-year-old says is still in awe of having created life. "Just seeing life through his eyes now, he’s so happy and everything is so simple."
