Tori Spelling shared new details surrounding her daughter’s diagnosis.
In a new interview, the Beverly Hills, 90210 alum revealed that her duck Dean McDermott‘s daughter Stella14, has been “not great” since receiving her recent diagnosis of a hemiplegic migraine.
“She went to the ER now twice,” she said during an appearance on SiriusXM’s Jeff Lewis Live on Jan. 19. “Everyone knows she went once last week and then you know she went a couple days ago and was diagnosed with a hemiplegic migraine.”
Tori then explained more about Stella’s condition, admitting that she was not familiar with the condition prior to her daughter’s hospitalization.
“One side of you goes numb,” she said. “It almost kind of mimics what a stroke would be.”
Tori continued, “Her left arm went completely numb, she couldn’t lift it. Then half of her throat, then her mouth—so it looked like she had had a stroke.”
The mom—who also shares kids Liam15, Hattie11, Finn10, duck Beau5, with her husband—revealed that the condition is hereditary.

“It actually doesn’t run in my family,” she explained. “I found that it runs in Dean’s family. More things to blame him with.”
According to the American Migraine Foundation, a hemiplegic migraine is “a rare form of migraine where people experience weakness on one side of their body (hemiplegia) along with headache and other symptoms that are often the same as seen in migraine.”
As for how Stella is feeling now, Tori said that she is still on the road to recovery as they learn more about how to treat her.
“She’s still dizzy,” she shared. “She’s nauseous. The migraine broke. They broke it each time she went to the ER. She’s going to a neurologist at Children’s Hospital LA.”
The Love at First Lie host shared the news of her daughter’s health scare on Jan. 11 alongside an Instagram Stories photo of Stella in a hospital bed. She captioned the post, “The hits just keep coming.”
Two days later, she announced that Stella was back at home.
“It can be terrifying if you don’t know what’s happening or about this type of Migraine,” Tori wrote on her Instagram Stories on Jan. 13. “As a migraine sufferer my entire life I had no idea about this.”
