It's certainly no secret that Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott have seen their fair share of ups and downs. Between Dean's cheating scandal that resulted in the awkward reality show True Tori, reported money troubles, ex-wife drama, and Tori having a "mental breakdown" not too long ago, help of any kind might not be a bad thing. Outlets are now reporting Dean and Tori are in marriage counseling to deal with some issues that has people criticizing the pair based on the number of children they have.

  • Tori and Dean are reportedly trying to make their marriage work and have "started counseling."

    "Tori and Dean are very much in love and have dedicated themselves to improving their marriage. They built a family together and plan on raising their kids as a team," an unnamed insider told Entertainment Tonight about the couple's fight to make their marriage better. "They realized things got completely out of hand when their blowout fights became very public. As painful as that period has been in their life, it was also very eye-opening for them."

    Dean McDermott and Tori Spelling have been married since 2016 and have five children together: Liam, 11; Stella, 10; Hattie, 6; Finn, 5; and Beau, 1. Dean also has a 19-year-old son named Jack with his ex-wife, Mary Jo Eustace.

  • The couple's news comes months after cops showed up to their home twice in 24 hours to respond to a "mental illness" call.

    Police responded to a "disturbance call" on March 1 at Tori and Dean's home, with outlets reporting the 90210 alum was "being very aggressive" and possibly suffering from a "nervous breakdown." The day before, Tori Spelling called the cops as she "thought someone was breaking into her house" (it was Dean coming home).

    Days after these incidents, Dean called the cops again but for undisclosed concerns about Tori leaving the house with one of their children.

  • But through it all, Dean and Tori seem dedicated to their marriage and are trying to smooth things out.

    The source continued to Entertainment Tonight:

    "Tori and Dean see Tori's experience as a nervous breakthrough rather than a nervous breakdown, because it led them back to the right path and a healthier life together. They both looked at what they were giving up by losing one another, and were willing and ready to do what it takes to make their relationship work.

    They started counseling again and turned everything around. They realized that most of their stress stemmed from their money issues. They're now working closely with an accountant to help fix their financial situation. They've since made some big changes."

  • "Their family dynamic is completely different," a source told Entertainment Weekly.

    "Tori loves Dean and wants him to have success. She also wants her mother to be happy. She's relied on her mother for help and her mother has always felt Dean needed to contribute. So this is truly a win-win situation.

    She never gave herself a break. Now she's balancing everything with the help of some extra childcare. Having full-time help is expensive, but taking care of five children on your own is close to impossible."

  • Welp, the jury of public opinion has a thing or two to say -- mainly that Tori and Dean are "hopeless" and need to stop having kids.

  • Is it too much to show a little grace -- or at the very least, hold back unwanted advice (and criticism)?
