By Kelly's birthday, the star will hopefully be reunited with Mark, who is currently staying in Vancouver to film Riverdale.

The All My Children star had been asked by Ryan who the favourite parent was, and she was quick to explain why it was Mark.

She said: "Well, first of all, this is the first time the kids have lived with him for an extended period of time. So maybe by the end of the lockdown we will be equal.

"But for years I was the one who took them to be vaccinated, I was the one who made them do their homework. I was the one who gave them cod liver oil before they made the delicious little supplements."

Kelly then joked: "So they associate me with pain and suffering, and they associate him with coming home at the weekends with airport gifts. Like 'Daddy's home!'"
