"Beverly Hills, 90210" star Tori Spelling is happily married to Canadian actor Dean McDermott. Together, the couple shares five beautiful kids. Read on to catch a glimpse of the actress's family life!

Actress Tori Spelling got her big break after appearing as Donna Martin on the hit 1990 Fox television series "Beverly Hills, 90210," which aired for 10 seasons.

On the show, Spelling won the hearts of many fans with her remarkable acting. So much so that after "Beverly Hills, 90210" came to an end in 2000, she went on to have a successful career in Hollywood.

However, while Spelling has made a name for herself, the actress's biggest achievement remains her family — husband Dean McDermott and their five kids Beau, Finn, Hattie, Stella, and Liam.

The actress's love for her large family is evident on her social media, which is splattered with adorable photos of her kids and famous husband. 


Last year, Spelling turned 47, but despite not being able to have a big celebration due to COVID-19 restrictions, the actress had an amazing day surrounded by family and friends.

Taking to Instagram, Spelling shared a photo of her and her children blowing out candles on a cake. The actress also posted a few throwback photos from her time on "Beverly Hills, 90210."

In 2014, McDermott publicly admitted to cheating on his wife.


She captioned the carousel, writing that she had a great time with her family and had spent the day reflecting on some of her past birthday celebrations.

The proud mom concluded by noting that she was grateful for her kids and all others who either took out time to celebrate with her or gave gifts.


While Spelling enjoys showing off time spent with her family, the actress also often gives glimpses into bonding moments between her children.

In February, the proud mom shared an adorable photo capturing her two daughters Hattie and Stella locked in a warm embrace. She accompanied the post with a caption noting that seeing her kids like that makes her heart warm.


Spelling and McDermott tied the knot over a decade ago, and while the couple currently enjoys a blissful family life with the kids, they have also had their share of marital issues.

In 2014, McDermott publicly admitted to cheating on his wife. While they have long moved on from the heartbreaking experience, Spelling revealed the situation upset her daughter. As celebrities, the couple's personal matters often appear on tabloids and social media platforms, which their kids have access to. 


The actress, however, added that despite how difficult it was for them, she had no regrets forgiving her husband as they came out of the scandal stronger. Spelling has since been vocal about her appreciation for McDermott. Last May, the pair celebrated their 14th year of marriage with sweet tributes online.

On Father's Day last year, the actress praised her spouse for being an amazing dad. "Daddy, thank you for being my partner in this lifetime," she wrote on Instagram alongside a photo of her husband. "You are our ROCK and we can't imagine nor do we want to imagine life without you!


However, towards the end of 2020, Spelling reportedly told her friends that she feared her husband would cheat again as he was filming "Lady Dicks" in Canada. According to a source:

"[...] In the back of her mind, she couldn't help get that feeling she tries so hard to supress -- the fear he would meet another woman."

To end the year, Spelling shared a family Christmas card which initially shocked fans as her husband was not included. However, the actress explained that McDermott was still out for work at that time and included him by holding his photo in the snap.
