Kelly continued: "This whole grief things is something that, I've learned recently, a lot of people don't understand, you don't really like to talk about it, it's not a very fun topic, but it's something that, at one point or another, we all go through.

"Even though I'm still very new to this world, I feel I've had kind of a crash course in it. Especially doing it very publicly, it adds a whole other level that takes it to this different place."
