American actress Tori spelling shared an adorable throwback picture of herself and her late Dad, Aaron, on Instagram and promised to continue to work hard so that his legacy lives on.
Tori's dad, Aaron Spelling, was very good at making people laugh, and the actress is not letting anyone forget the number of faces he put smiles on while he was still alive.

The throwback photo showed a beaming 7-year-old Tori, while Aaron was holding on to her as they both posed for the snapshot.
For Tori, he was more than just her father. She described him as her friend, teacher, and hero. She mentioned how good it would have been to have him amid the global crisis in her caption:
"...I know during this time of world crisis and sadness, this creative genius would have been hard at work creating groundbreaking entertainment..."
The mother of five wishes that her kids were lucky enough to have Grandpa Aaron in their life, but he died in 2006, years before any of them was born. His death, which came at the age of 83, was due to complications from a stroke.
She also keeps her kids engaged by allowing them to help out in the kitchen.
Tori and her dad were close, but they did not always get along. They had a significant fall out while he was still alive, but the 46-year-old was able to make peace with him before he passed away. She revealed the details in an exclusive interview with People:
"I'm grateful I recently had the opportunity to reconcile with my father and most grateful we had the chance to tell each other we loved one another..."
The "Inn Love" star got married to her 53-year-old husband, Dean McDermott, the same year her dad died.
The couple lives together with their kids in an exquisite hidden hill mansion, where they now spend all their time due to the ongoing pandemic.
Since her children are around each other all the time, there is bound to be disagreements over different things such as the TV channel to watch.
Tori was able to get her hands on a new app that solves the issue, and she shared the name with others who might be having the same problem.
She also keeps her kids engaged by allowing them to help out in the kitchen. For parents in quarantine with kids, Tori's routine could be of great help.
