THEY GREW APART

Together, Todd and Dori share a son named Spencir, and during their separation, they made it clear that they were both committed to doing whatever it takes to maintain the well-being of their son.

Unfortunately for their relationship, they grew apart as the years went by, and it was something that could no longer be fixed. In 2012, they decided that a divorce was what was best for their family.
