This comes after OK! reported Tori Spelling — who shares Liam, 14, Stella, 13, Hattie, 10, Finn, 9 and Beau, 4 with McDermott — announced she wasn't as active on social media because she and her "entire family" had COVID.

"Nothing is worse than wanting to care for your little ones but feeling so sick you can barely function yourself," the True Tori personality said. "I feel useless as a parent. Devastated. A mom is supposed to take care of their kiddos when sick. That’s how it works. But, we are all getting thru this together. I know we aren’t alone. So many are going thru this as well. Have gone they thru this. And, will go thru this."

"Give me some time. We are right in the thick of it," she added. "For reference : This post took 45 min of starting and stopping to write."
