It's been an eventful time for Kelly's family, who not only have had several birthdays to celebrate - including son Michael's 24th birthday earlier in the month - but a graduation too. 

On Friday, Kelly and Mark were incredibly proud as they went to watch their youngest child, Joaquin, 18, graduate from high school, ahead of his big move away from home.

Joaquin's graduation was extra poignant as unlike his siblings, who both chose to study in New York, the teenager will be moving state in September to attend the University of Michigan in September to enroll on their wrestling programme.

Earlier this month, Kelly shared a photo of Joaquin and Mark walking around the campus of the university.

While Joaquin looked happy, Mark looked a little sad, and Kelly wrote in the caption: "Looks like @instasuelos just found out he won't be @joaquinconsuelos roommate in the fall."
