The couple appears to be basking in the season’s euphoria as they showed no signs of divorce on their family holiday card. The holiday picture gladdened the hearts of their fans following the numerous breakup rumors that have plagued the reality TV stars’ marriage for years.
Tori Spelling Dazzles Followers With Christmas Family Portrait
The photo, which Spelling shared in an Instagram post, showed the family in a color scheme of whites, blacks, and grays. The 49-year-old donned a shimmering black jumpsuit that fit her stellar figure like a glove.
The “Stori Telling” author’s outfit matched the similar shimmering looks rocked by three of her kids, while Dean stood out in a burgundy V-neck shirt and dark jeans. The blended family wore huge smiles as they posed in front of trees.
After admitting it was her “favorite time of year,” Spelling claimed under the pic, “This year is extra special. We’re ALL together!” The sweet image and accompanying caption resulted in an instant reaction from her fans and followers.
One person exclaimed in the comments, “it’s the best card!!!! So happy Dean and Jack are in it!!!!” Another fan gushed, “I love that dean is in it!!! You all look so good and happy!”
A third commenter revealed, “I absolutely love your family and love that Dean is present in this card! I love you guys together and hope the very best for you both and your beautiful family!!!!”
A fourth fan added, “The kids are getting so big. What a beautiful photo,” while a fifth shared, “I’m grateful you’re all together. You’re a beautiful example of family love and loyalty despite our culture.”
These fans’ excitement is understandable, as McDermott was noticeably absent from the annual Christmas family portrait last year. At the time, Spelling hinted that their marriage was going through a rough patch, causing observers to anticipate the end of their union.
However, McDermott laid the speculation to rest last week during an interview. The Blast shared that the 56-year-old confessed, “Everything is amazing. Everything’s great. We’re having a lot of fun. We’re loving the cold weather and then getting ready for the craziness of Thanksgiving and Christmas… I’m excited.”
The Canadian native also disclosed that he and his family planned to do a “big potluck” with all their neighbors. McDermott emphasized the stability of his marriage jokingly, stating, “I’m sorry I’m off the market, ladies. I’m so sorry.”
Spelling Is Proud Of Her Man’s Parenting Skills While She Is Away From Home

Last month, The Blast reported that McDermott made Spelling proud while she shot the new MTV show, “Love at First Lie.” The series was filmed for a month in Malta, Italy, making the “Beverly Hills, 90210” star “nervous” about taking the hosting role. The mother-of-five revealed:
“I was away from my children for almost a month, which was brutal. I hated being away from my kids, and that was the longest I’ve ever gone. It was right when their school started, so it was really hard to pull them out.”
The “Izzie’s Way Home” actress expressed her joy that McDermott could be with the kids. In her words, “I felt safe that they had their dad there the whole time, and I was grateful for that.” Spelling acknowledged that her parenting style was different from her husband’s — while she was more of a “feelings mom,” her man was more “procedural.”
For the “A Friend to Die For” star, that difference in style helped them maintain the balance needed to keep their family afloat. She noted that both parties in a relationship needed “both worlds” to “be a complete human.”
The actress further explained that she was not raising her five kids the same way she was raised. Since she could not effectively communicate her feelings as a child, she did it with her children.
Despite the occasional jab from her kids, Spelling is focused on knowing exactly how they are feeling at all times. The family even indulges in an after-school recap daily. She and McDermott have been married since 2006, and they share five kids — Liam, Beau, Fin, Stella, and Hattie.
