Tori Spelling in a heartwarming message on social media, paid tribute to her late father. She wrote on how much he inspires her and how proud he would be of her and her brother


Tori Spelling of "Beverly Hills, 90210," is the daughter of the late iconic producer, Aaron Spelling. The deceased's birthday was on Monday, and the actress took to Instagram to celebrate him.


Spelling posted different pictures of her dad and wrote a lengthy caption along with it. It began with the words:

"Today, I celebrate my dad…,"

And she went on to write in the first paragraph that although her father was no longer alive, it would be wrong not to wish him a happy birthday, as he touched lives throughout his lifetime.

The actress in the next paragraph introduced her father to those whom she believes are too young to know him. The 45-year-old wrote that the deceased father-of-two was an amazingly gifted producer, who created some of the best TV shows in the history of television.


Spelling described the late 83-year-old as the ultimate underdog, who never gave up. In addition to that, he was a remarkable husband, father, and friend.

In the third paragraph, the actress turned producer wrote on how much her father influenced her life. The mother-of-five wrote that although Aaron is gone, he remains the most hardworking person she knows and her "Greatest inspiration."

The actress credits him as the person who taught her to dream big, stick with her beliefs, and never give up. Spelling then listed some of her father's greatest achievements, noting that he produced over 200 shows.


The late producer's daughter wrote that he understood what people needed and gave them an avenue of escape, joy, entertainment, and a voice.

However, Spelling regrets that Aaron is no longer here to spend time with his grandchildren but is comforted in the knowledge and between her five children, and her brother, Randy Spelling's two, they've created a family he would be proud of. Also, the actress alluded to following in his footsteps, and whenever she needs clarity, she always asks:

"What would dad do?"

The actress did not forget her mother, Candy Spelling; she wrote that her father would be proud of the work his wife is doing as a producer on Broadway. In the end, Spelling wrote,


"I love and miss you, every day."


Aaron died in 2006 after an impactful life. He rose from being a poor Jewish immigrant boy to become a force in TV production. He created hit series like "Charlie's Angels," "Dynasty," and "Love Boat." Aaron's shows won several awards, and "CBS" acquired his vast TV library after he died.

Despite his great achievements, many remember him as someone who fought for the underdog, gave everyone a chance, and always said thank you. Aaron might be dead for over a decade, but his legacy lives on, and Spelling is serving as an executive producer in the reboot of "Beverly Hills, 90210;" a show he produced back in the ‘90s.
