AceShowbiz - Tori Spelling felt terribly proud as a mother once her daughter has graduated from middle school. On the day of graduation, the 49-year-old actress spilled a bittersweet story to her fans about the hardships that her daughter had to face during the latter's school days.
"My girl graduated from middle school today. Bittersweet," Tori stated in her post she shared on Thursday, June 9. The "BH90210" alum uploaded a photo of her daughter Stella posing in her blue gown during the her graduation day. Stella was seen donning a heavy make-up as she smiled at the camera.
Back in 2020, Tori admitted that she's a "worried mama" because of how much the two eldest of her and husband Dean McDermott's five children, Stella and Liam, have been bullied at school. The former reality star further detailed the extent of Stella's suffering.
Tori claimed the traumatizing event has affected Stella's mental and physical health. "My daughter was bullied so bad ( including comments about her weight and sexual things he said that my daughter didn't even know about.)," she explained in her caption she shared on Instagram.
The 49-year-old mom went on noting, "She now associates her education with boys that have been so horrific to her. She wanted to empower others girls and be a business leader. She now has panic attacks and doesn’t want to return to school."
Despite the various hardships at school, Tori was so proud of her daughter who made it through her graduation stage. The star of "The Last Sharknado: It's About Time" then continued to brag to her followers, "Amongst bullying, COVID, adversity, migraines, severe anxiety, and sadly teachers and counselors who didn't believe she could do it all in time to graduate… She proved them all wrong!"
The proud mom finally ended her lengthy caption with a sweet message for her beloved daughter filled with encouragement, "You have such drive and such a kind spirit! You can do absolutely anything you want to do!love you @stella_mcdermott08 with all my heart and soul bff."
Tori never shies away from posting her kids on Instagram, although her husband Dean was rarely included these days. The actress shares a total of five kids with the Canadian actor, Stella, Liam, Finna, Beau and Hattie. The couple are said to have decided on a trial separation after 16 years of marriage.
