The former Beverly Hills 90210 star has finally dropped the bombshell after years of speculation that her estranged husband was on their separate sides, behind the scenes of the show that made them famous.
Earlier this year, the pair staged a photo shoot, entitled Trees in the Garden, on their Malibu beachfront property, which featured some of their children performing in a video for the tree lighting at the Malibu Playhouse.
In December, the couple put out a set of photos, shot by Terry Richardson, that featured just their four children: Liam, nine, Stella, eight, Hattie, five, and Finn, four.
Pics of the event show a group of white, smiling people sitting in front of a tree with a red trunk, lit up by Christmas lights. Spelling is not included in the picture, but is credited as the producer and host.
While on-screen romantic partnerships can be hard to watch for fans, Spelling has opted to stay with McDermott despite his cheating scandals last year.

A spokesperson for the couple, reached by CNN on Monday, declined to comment on why McDermott had been omitted from the image.
“The holiday card was set up months ago and is meant to be a light-hearted reminder to all the love around the house. The entire family was involved in the shoot,” said a representative for Spelling.
“We didn’t see each other and won’t see each other again for about six months. Sometimes we live in different worlds. Other times we meet up for dinner. This was a family moment between a family and the kids are enjoying the family moment too.”
Celebrities like Chrissy Teigen and Olivia Wilde are quoted saying Christmas card time for them is a bittersweet ritual.

Spelling and McDermott have been married since 2006 and have four children together. Spelling said she had not seen McDermott in months last year after his affair with a woman at their home in January 2018 was revealed in the media. The actress and her children have been living with her mother, Candy Spelling, in an apartment in Beverly Hills since then.
Spelling said in a recent statement that she does not think her estranged husband will be around much this year either.
“There’s nothing happening so far this year so, in general, I think 2019 is going to be quite different,” she said.
“It will be a more of a separate-ness year which I prefer,” she added.
McDermott’s website has since been taken down after years of it being a forum for rumours of his relationship with Spelling and alleged cheating.
