“Dean and I are beyond happy that Scout and Bill’s dreams of becoming parents have come true. Little Simone couldn’t have two better loving and deserving dads. Her cousins Liam and Stella are anxiously waiting to meet her. Stella kisses pictures of her that Guncle Billy and Scouty send us.” – Tori Spelling on the birth of Simone.
“We are in awe of Simone and thrilled that our dream of becoming parents has finally come true. From the moment we saw her we instantly fell in love — she has us wrapped around her little fingers.” -the proud new papas on the birth of their first child.
“We will definitely celebrate Simone’s birthday in a big way. We love to throw parties, as events are a portion of our firm’s business. Also, we love having our good friend, Jenny Keller (Jenny Cookies) come down to bake and help us create an amazing, fun day. Jenny has made Simone’s birthday cake (and amazing dessert tables) every year since Simone’s very first birthday. We joke that we hope she’ll come down from Seattle all the way through Simone’s 21st!” – the Guncles on their daughter’s 4th Birthday plans.
“Simone is such a fun loving (part jokester) girl. She loves to create and play with the basics. You won’t see her playing with many pre-made toys — she’s all about paper, kid scissors, and markers/paints right now. Last night she was making birthday crowns for all of her stuffed animals out of construction paper.” – the couple on their nearly 4-year-old little lady.
