Kit shared the honor with fans

The couple share daughters Hayes and Campbell, and son Klark.

Known for her upbeat personality, Kit recently opened up about her positive outlook and how she handles juggling everything.

She told Woman's World: "I love my work and I’m so grateful for it, but being a working mom, wife and daughter, it's impossible to do everything well all of the time.

"There are times you can't be where you need to be and so different aspects might suffer, but if I try to be present where I am, things usually work out. If you focus on what's most important, I think it all comes out in the wash."

Her career has taken her from reality TV where she starred on Road Rules: USA – The First Adventure in 1995 to ESPN where she covered tennis before joining Access in 2010.
