Continued she, “Love your big beautiful family. You teach me every day how to become the person I desire to be. Love you Liam @liammcdermott2007, Stella @stella_mcdermott08, Hattie, Finn, and Beau.”

Although Dean was noticeably missing from the family trip, there was a reason for his absence. The actor took to Instagram on New Year’s Day to reveal that he was feeling under the weather. 

All the best for the new year! “I am down but not out!! He sent his message. Pneumonia is a pain, but it won’t dampen my spirit! My 2022 wish list is filled with light, love and prosperity. We are all in your debt.

Alongside his caption, Dean said in a video that he was “sick as a dog,” adding, “2022 is gonna be awesome. We’ll get there in 2022.

This isn’t the first time in recent months the Canadian actor has been missing from family holiday activities. Tori, who shared the McDermott Spelling holiday greeting card with her family on Instagram just before Thanksgiving, wrote: “Happy Holiday…With Love, From Our Farm to Your Family Home!” xoxo, Tori & family.”

When fans asked why Dean wasn’t in the picture, Tori explained, “Fact: @imdeanmcdermott was filming his new feature film in Canada.”
