Despite their past differences, Tori Spelling’s love for her mother, Candy Spelling, is unwavering.

To celebrate the Spelling family matriarch’s 73rd birthday on Thursday, Tori, 45, shared an adorable throwback photo of the mother and daughter from decades ago.

“I knew I loved yellow for a reason… Happy Birthday to my always chic mommy @candyspelling We ❤️ you!!” Tori captioned a photo of herself as a baby, sitting beside Candy, who adoringly gazes at her.

“I am a strong woman because of you and I honor you today!” she wrote. “#TBT #motheranddaughter #alwayslovemymommy.”

In the photo, Candy wears a long-sleeved orange blouse and Tori sports a nautical-inspired, short-sleeved yellow dress as she holds a doll in her hand.

Although the pair spent years feuding after Tori’s father, TV tycoon Aaron Spelling, died in 2006, they appear to be on positive terms nowadays. Last May, theycelebrated Mother’s Day together, which Candy documented on social media.

Last month, Candy shared two adorable throwback photos of Tori, whom she praised as “beautiful and talented.”
