Happy Birthday to the Love of My Life

 Today is a really special day here in the McDermott household. I thank the heavens and Doreen and David McDermott for giving me the love of my life. It’s Dean’s birthday today. He is and forever will be my true love, my best friend, and my partner in crime. I honestly can’t believe that it’s been 7 years since we met. I feel like I’ve known Dean for a lifetime… He has given me so much – He is my universe and together we created the most beautiful 4 planets there could ever be. He shows me love I have never known (and didn’t think could ever exist). And, this past year he has gone beyond showing what the vows “In sickness and in health” mean in a marriage. He is the man love songs are made from and my dream come true.

But, it’s not just my dreams he’s made come true. Our kids couldn’t be luckier to have him as a Dad. He brings new meaning to the phrase “hands on” and makes it look effortless. He inspires me everyday. He is my perfect match in every way, and I thank our angels every day for bringing us together.

To celebrate Dean’s birthday, let’s take a little stroll down McDermott memory lane:

6 years of marriage, a beautiful stepson, 4 babies and infinite stinky diapers later, I love this man more than ever.

Happy birthday babe!

    Happy Birthday Dean, and congratulations on the amazing family you and Tori have. I always enjoyed watching your reality show. You, Tori, the children and animals make for wonderful family television, and are very good examples of how family life should be. Your children (and animals) are very lucky to live with you. Enjoy your day, and all the best for the coming year. Cheers from Magog, Qu

  • LKm

    Happy Birthday Dean! You two are incredible and the reason why I keep wanting to have more babies! I know nothing comes easy in life, but really, just one look at all those gorgeous babes must make it worthwhile. (at least just a bit, i know that was too scary for all.) Tori, I live vicariously thru you.

  • desi

    Happy Birthday Dean! Thank you and Tori for sharing your beautiful pictures. Your family is gorgeous. Thank you for being a hands-on Dad. My Dad was like you and he is 84 now. I still cherish the memories of him and how he cared for us growing up. Your children will too. Best wishes!

    Congratulations Dean and CHEERS! I wish you loads of health, many years of love and luck and a very good time with Tori and all of your children! And to you Tori … you have the ability to write things that make me well up all the time! I like to think it is because you write from the bottom of your heart, I think it’s inspiring.

  • Lemon Meringue

    And a little p.s.: Is it really only seven years that the two of you are together? It looks like at least seven lifes! All them children and a lot going on: old souls united in a unique match, that’s what the two of you look like. Bless you!

May you have a fantastic birthday and many more to come!

  • Camille Andreiuci

    As others have said I NEVER wrote to celbrities before, not even when I was a teenager many, many years ago. But Tori & Dean and their adorable family are different. I feel like I’m a part of whatever they are doing from the comfort of my own home. If EVER you guys are in the Boynton Beach, FL area it would be my honor to cook up a special Italian dinner for all the McDermotts. Happy Birthday Dean – just love watching you & your family grow.

  • Kendra Linze

    Dear Dean: Have a very very Happy Birthday. I have watched your shows and love them. I don’t like or watch reality shows but love yours as you both are so real and caring and have such a lovely family. I haven’t seen the last two additions to your family as I had no time to watch those shows but with winter coming, will have more time to start again. I have seen how caring you are to Tori and watch out for her and her needs and all the help you give her. She is a lucky lady to have suh a wonderful man in her life and I am sure you are too to have her in yours.

    Much love and happiness in your coming years to you both. Hope to see you both in movies on TV again soon.

    I just joined Editorial today after seeing you all online and being so happy for your beautiful family. You can feel the love. Dean, you are blessed to have such a lovely family, but that’s all part of who you are as a kindhearted, caring, and obviously loving father and husband. You are a big part of why your marriage works. I wish you a belated birthday — and I am sure everything that is said about you is all true. Enjoy!

  • Kathie

    P.S. Just also wanted to say I LOVE the photos; keep em coming! Your family is absolutely adorable. Always treasure each other.
