Tori Spelling Thanks Her Kids For Helping Her Mend Her Relationship With Mom, Candy!

Tori sees Candy in a different light now that she’s a mom herself and their bond is growing everyday. Did your kids help you mend a bad relationship with your parent?

Tori and Candy Spelling‘s tumultuous relationship is a thing of the past thanks to Tori’s two kids — and one on the way — with husband Dean McDermott. The reality TV star and author admits that becoming a mom made her realize how important family is and how much her kids, Liam, 4, and Stella, 3, need their grandma.

“You get to have a whole new relationship with your parent through your children and I think that’s a really nice experience,” Tori, 38, revealed on Good Morning America. “No matter what has happened or has been said, you still love your parent no matter what and the parent loves the child no matter what.”

“The kids [brought my mom and I back together], especially at their age,” Tori, adds. “When they were babies it was important, but now they ask for her, they want to be with Grandma.”

And although their past was a rocky one, Tori now sees Candy in a new light, especially when she watches her mom interact with her family.

“When I see her doing things with the kids it reminds me, ‘Oh my gosh, I remember when she did that with me,’” Tori shares. “She was giving Stella butterfly kisses one day and she turned to me and goes, ‘Do you remember?’ And I said, ‘That you used to do that with me?’ And she goes, ‘Yeah.'”

We’re so happy Tori and Candy have patched up their relationship. Can you relate to their story, HollyMoms?
