Kelly thanked whoever took the photo 

Kelly's photo was deemed so hot, that one fan even suggested someone go check on Mark, "He might have passed out," they wrote. 

Despite the fact Kelly was reminiscing over what her body looked like back in 2009, she remains fit, healthy and toned at 50, and it's through plenty of hard work and determination.

She also credits the help of Dr. Daryl Gioffre - author of Get Off Your Sugar - for helping her kick sugar cravings.

He spoke to HELLO! and gave insight into Kelly's wellness regime.

Kelly and Mark have three children together 

"She walks the walk, and lives this lifestyle better than anyone I know," he said. "She works out daily, and every time she eats, they are high-alkaline foods that nourish and strengthen her body, strengthen her energy, and strengthen her immune system."

When she gets a craving for something sweet, she turns to detox tea!

"She drinks our Alkamind Acid-Kicking Daily Greens every morning, and will drink a detox tea with turmeric, ginger, lemon, and black pepper at night to crush any cravings, and keep the body in a peak, strengthened state.

"Being healthy is not about deprivation, it's about balance, and that's exactly how Kelly lives."
