Kelly and Mark have been dealing with being empty nesters pretty well

The picture came mere hours after the Live! Instagram page announced that they were making their return to the studio for good, back to filming all their shows live for the new season.

Over the course of the pandemic, their shows had consisted of a mix of in-studio recording plus the use of archival footage, but fans can now look forward to some real-time content.

However, despite all the alone time, the couple has really been missing their kids and they've shared their fond memories of them on their feeds.

Kelly recently shared a sweet throwback photo of Mark with a young Michael, Lola, and Joaquin, all ready for their first day of school.

The Live! team announced that they would return to the studio full time

In the caption, the former Hope and Faith star wrote, "#tbt 2008 First day of school," alongside a series of heart emojis.

While Michael and Lola have been out of the house for a while now, it was their youngest son Joaquin's turn to say goodbye, as he left to attend school at the University of Michigan.
