“He’s in a lot of pain,” Tori Spelling, who has been by her husband’s side since the accident (his second on a motorcycle this year), says. “He’s taking this as a sign and realizing family is too important to risk his life.”
Dean, 43, crashed on Tuesday (June 29), while dirt bike riding with two friends. After the accident, he couldn’t move and was bleeding heavily from his right side with a puncture wound. He was rushed to the intensive care unit at a Los Angeles-area hospital. The reality TV star is expected to make a full recovery.
On Thursday, Dean took to Twitter to thank his supporters.
Thanks for the well wishes. A collapsed lung is no fun, and is a lengthy heal. Feeling pretty bad today. Day 2 is always the worst.”
Tori and Dean are parents to son Liam, 3, and daughter Stella, 2. Dean is also dad to 11-year-old son Jack with his ex-wife, TV presenter/chef Mary Jo Eustace.
