Candy Spelling is "thrilled" her daughter Tori is pregnant.
Candy - widow of TV legend Aaron Spelling, the creator of classic TV programmes 'Charlie's Angels' and 'Dynasty' - says she can't wait to be a grandmother.
She gushed to People magazine: "I'm thrilled and ecstatic and if Aaron were here, I know how thrilled he would also be to share in such a happy occasion."
It is the first child for Tori and her husband Dean McDermott, although Dean already has an eight-year-old son, Jack, from a previous relationship.
Candy's joy suggests she has finally forgiven the 33-year-old actress - who is 14 weeks pregnant - and ended their long-running feud.
Mother and daughter have been warring since Tori claimed she found out about her father's death from a friend.
Earlier this year, she said: "I was devastated. I thought I had some time to see him. And I was saddened that the news had not come from my mother."
Outraged Candy hit back in a statement: "We are deeply saddened that, during our time of loss and grief, we are forced to respond to the media frenzy caused by the mean-spirited and surprising comments made by Tori to the press."
