Spelling, who turned 47 a few months ago, finds herself grateful after facing her mortality and that of her children in a traumatic experience, even though she didn't specify the exact location.

THE SHOCKING EXPERIENCE

Dean McDermott and Tori Spelling are parents to five kids, Stella, Hattie, Liam, Finn, and little Beau, and the actress shared that everyone thankfully escaped the ordeal unharmed.

"U know angels are watching when you are in the wrong place at the wrong time & you & kids & others around are unharmed afterward," Spelling wrote. "Never in my life did I think I would witness a man w/a machine gun who then started shooting."

IT POSSIBLY OCCURED IN MIDTOWN ATLANTA

The only indication Spelling gave of where the shooting occurred is in her thanking of "hotel staff" that they are all safe again and that none of the bullets caused anyone harm.

The notation by Spelling corresponds with a report by WSB-TV that police responded to a lone shooter in midtown Atlanta that fired bullets into a hotel. The man is reportedly in jail.

CELEBRATION EARLIER THIS YEAR

A short four months ago, Spelling turned 47, and she celebrated the special day in the best possible way - with her family. With a delicious looking cake and candles to blow out as well, Spelling had everything with her she could ever wish for.

Feeling nostalgic on her birthday, the actress thought back on all the "amazing birthdays" she's had with her kids and during the early years of her career, happy to have had another.

"Love all the people that have been on the journey with me so far. It’s been an incredibly empowering and humbling ride."
