Thirteen years of marriage and five kids later, Dean McDermott and wife Tori Spelling still have that spark. The Chopped Canada star — who married the Beverly Hills, 90210 actress in May 2006 — recently opened up about how they keep the romance in their marriage alive.
“We’ve never had to worry about the spark,” Dean, 52, revealed to In Touch Weekly in the magazine’s latest issue, on newsstands now. “It’s there in good times, bad times, busy times … I’ve got a super hot wife, what can I say?”
Their road to wedded bliss may not have been the easiest, but the beloved couple — who share five kids Liam, 12, Stella, 10, Hattie, 7, Finn, 6, and Beau, 2, as well as Dean’s 21-year-old son, Jack, with ex-wife Mary Jo Eustace — couldn’t be happier.
In fact, the adorable pair recently dished their top three secrets to maintaining a successful marriage. “Finding those moments in the crazy-busy day to make eye contact, to kiss, to say ‘I love you,’ to touch in some form, I just feel like that’s really important,” Dean gushed to Us Weekly in March.
Tori, 45, chimed in with, “If you go through your busy life — we’re working, we have kids — if you don’t take a moment, you’ll realize the entire day is gone, and you haven’t had that moment together and then it’s over. So we make sure we do that on a daily basis now.”
The So Notorious star added that communication is one of the most important things to have in a marriage. Tori even revealed that talking more with Dean “changed everything” for their relationship. “We started this some years back,” she shared. “We communicate now, I have a voice. He probably hears too much of it but he [is so] good at listening. Women like to talk and over-explain.”
The duo even hilariously dished that touching Tori’s derriere has made Dean quite a happy man. “I have to touch her butt every day,” he laughed. “It started on the red carpet. It started off as a nervous thing because she was so used to red carpets and I got thrust into it and my hand just went to her butt, and I was like, ‘Ahh, such a safe place, I’m okay now.'”
