Just before Jessica Simpson got us talking about back-to-back babies, there was Tori Spelling, of course. She shocked us all when she announced her fourth pregnancy just five months (if that) after she gave birth to her daughter Hattie, in October 2011.
Baby Finn was born in August 2012, making him a mere 10 months younger than Hattie.
"[Hattie] are 10 months apart, so for me, it's almost like having twins!" Tori told Access Hollywood. "It's a lot of work. It's not the fact of having four kids, it's just having two so close."
But having back-to-back babies was nothing new for Tori and hubby Dean McDermott. Their older kids, Liam, 5.5, and Stella, 4.5, are just 15 months apart.Photo: FameFlynet
Even before Tori Spelling, though, Britney Spears made headlines when she became pregnant with Jayden James, 6.5, shortly after giving birth to her first child, Sean Preston, 7.5.
Both born in September, the two boys are almost exactly one year apart.

Supermodel/Project Runway host Heidi Klum had three kids back to back! OK, let's see if I can this straight.
She gave birth to her first child (with Flavio Briatore), Leni, in May 2004. 16 months later (September 2005), she and ex-hubby Seal welcomed their son Henry. 14 months after that (November 2006), she and Seal welcomed their second son, Johan.
Whew! I can't imagine. Of course, Heidi bounced back quickly (and famously) every time. Later, in October 2009, Heidi and Seal welcomed their fourth child, Lou.

I know I promised less than 18 months apart. But what's one month (...and "less than 19 months apart" sounded odd up there in the description). Besides, look how cute!Photo: Juan Rico/FameFlynet
