After weathering a cheating scandal while married to wife Tori Spelling, the father of six opens up to HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY about how he saved his marriage and family.
Dean McDermott, 52, seems to have it all these days. He has six adorable kids, a happy marriage, and his newest baby — his “Daddy Issues” podcast that drops every Monday with fellow friends and comedians Nicky Paris and Adam Hunter. However, fans are quickly remembering that life for Dean wasn’t always sunshine and rainbows, as he openly talks about his marriage struggles for his listeners. “When everything went down, that bond was just — it wasn’t broken,” Dean told HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY while promoting his new podcast that’s available for download via Spotify and Apple on Mondays. “It was hurt. It was strained and stretched, but it never broke. It was always there.”
So what is the couple’s key to success and weathering the storm? Dean himself shares that he doesn’t even know! “That’s a really good question,” Dean says with a laugh. “All I can say is from the moment we met, it was just on. It was done. It’s like you guys are meant to be together. It happened. And whatever happens from that day forward, you just get through it together. And believe me, we’ve been through it. The things that have happened, and having five kids, and her being a stepmom to my son, Jack, and dealing with, my ex-wife. It’s been a life that — if you don’t have that thing, that magic, that spark, that connection then things are not going to work out or they’re going to be really difficult. And for the both of us, it’s not difficult at all.”
