Mark was full of flirty compliments for his wife 

Before Mark left to shoot his show, Riverdale, in Vancouver over the summer, the pair had spent a significant amount of time together, as they quarantined with their three children, Joaquin, 17, Lola, 19, and Michael 23, during the first COVID-19 lockdown. 

Kelly told her co-host, Ryan Seacrest, that being under one roof for an extended period of time highlighted just how in love they are.

The couple have been married 24 years 

"The pandemic happened and we spent an unprecedented amount of time together," she told Ryan just after Mark had left for Canada. "We spent six months together in the same house. It was a testament that we really like each other. I'm sad not to wake up with him, it's very sad. I will miss him, that's all I can say."

They were briefly reunited over the holidays and they are no doubt eager to be back together again soon.
