Tori Spelling Wishes Her ‘Bestie’ Daughter Stella a Happy 16th Birthday: ‘So Beautiful Inside and Out’

The ‘90210’ alum shares Stella and four other kids with ex Dean McDermott.

Tori Spelling is celebrating her daughter’s sweet 16!

On Sunday, June 9, the Beverly Hills, 90210 alum, 51, commemorated her oldest daughter Stella’s 16th birthday with a heartfelt Instagram tribute. The post features a video — set to the song “Lovers Rock” by TV Girl — that’s filled with photos of Stella over the years.

“My Baby Girl @stella_mcdermott08 is 16 today!” Spelling wrote in the caption, as photos flashed of the teen posing for the camera in various fashionable outfits, wearing face paint, cooking, and even taking selfies with her mom.

“Is she my mini me or am I now her mini me?” Spelling continued in the caption. “Will always be my Buggy 🐞. So beautiful inside and out. So wise, funny, creative, and best of all KIND. So proud of this human. Love watching her challenge the world as she takes it over.”

“They’ll never yet always see her coming,” the proud mom finished her caption. “Love you bestie baby. xo.”

Along with Stella, the actress shares four other children with ex Dean McDermott: Liam, 17, Hattie, 12, Finn, 11, and Beau, 7.

Spelling has kept much of her kids’ lives private in recent months amid her split from McDermott, 57. The actress officially filed for divorce on March 29 after 18 years of marriage. However, she has shared updates about Stella’s goings-on — including her recent health challenges.

In January 2023, the mom of five revealed via an Instagram Stories post that Stella was experiencing health concerns, sharing a photo of her in a hospital bed wearing a gown and mask.

“The hits just keep coming😭,” Spelling wrote in a caption.

The actress then made an appearance on SiriusXM’s Jeff Lewis Live a few days later to share more updates about her daughter’s health.

“She went to the ER, now twice, and was diagnosed with a hemiplegic migraine,” she said of Stella at the time. “One side of you goes numb, it almost kind of mimics what a stroke would be.”

Earlier this year, the host of the misSpelling podcast also celebrated her oldest child’s birthday with an Instagram post, writing that 17-year-old Liam has always “gone with the flow.”

“Happy 17th birthday to my 1st baby @liammcdermott___ aka Monkey,” she wrote in March, before recalling his difficult birth. “You were born via emergency yet came out sleeping. On point. All eyes on you yet chill af.”

“You’ve had an extremely hard year yet your energy, positivity, empathy, kindness, humor, creativity, and light shines past any obstacles. I love you with all my heart and soul,” she continued. “You astound me daily. So proud to be your mom. Always be you. You are amazing. In awe of your being. Love, P Mama.”

This past week, Spelling shared an update about her youngest child, Beau, as he started the first grade, posting photos on Instagram of herself celebrating his graduation from kindergarten.

“Beau Beau 🐻 is officially a 1st grader,” Spelling wrote on June 8. “Yesterday he had his end of the year Kindergarten party at school. So proud of this kid! My Baby.”
