Tori Spelling's war of words with her estranged mother CANDY appears to have simmered down, after the elder Spelling revealed she is "ecstatic" her daughter is pregnant. Following the death of legendary TV producer Aaron Spelling - Tori's father and Candy's husband - in June (06), the pair criticised each other in the media after Tori revealed she learned her dad had passed from a friend, and not from her family. However, now Candy has come out in support of Tori, who is expecting her first child with husband Dean McDermott. The former BEVERLY HILLS, 90210 star is due to give birth in early spring (07). Candy tells US magazine People, "I'm thrilled and ecstatic and if Aaron were here, I know how thrilled he would also be to share in such a happy occasion."
