The Live! star, who tied the knot with Mark Consuelos back in May 1996, took to Instagram to share a post dedicated to her mother-in-law. And, in turn, she revealed her sweet nickname for Camilla - mom.

Kelly and Mark, meanwhile, are proud parents to three children: Michael, 24, Lola, 20, and 18-year-old Joaquin. Just last month, Michael spoke candidly about his parents' marriage in an interview with Entertainment Tonight.

"One hundred percent they're relationship goals, and it's weird because I've been with them the longest," the Riverdale actor said, noting that he's the couple's first-born child. "Not a year after they were married, about a year, then I came into the picture. So we kind of grew up together, at least that's how I see it."
