After six years of hosting the ABC morning show beside Ryan Seacrest, she will be joined by her husband Mark Consuelos as co-host, her fourth since she began, starting April 15.
However, 23 years on, she's also had time to consider leaving the show behind and embarking on other ventures.
The first priority? Some R&R time. "I've never had a year off in my life. The most I've had off is a month, and that's usually been for maternity leave."
While she hopes to also continue acting after, the TV veteran expressed interest in working behind the camera on a scripted series, and potentially even grooming the next generation of Live! hosts.
"I don’t want to put a timeline on it," she continued. "But I do believe there is a great opportunity to get two younger people and start training them, because I like seamless transitions. However long it takes to get two people up and ready is how long we'll be there."
Fans of Kelly and Mark from their All My Children days are already excited to see the duo regularly on screen each morning.
In fact, many voiced that sentiment on a post the Hope and Faith star shared on Instagram as a tribute to her husband on Thursday celebrating his 52nd birthday.
Kelly included a compilation of memories, spanning his childhood to their soap opera days to their current days as husband and wife and parents to their three children, Michael, Lola, and Joaquin.
"Happy birthday to the love of my life @instasuelos. Celebrating you never gets old," she sweetly wrote, and Mark simply replied: "Thanks babe!!"
Mark turned 52 like his wife on March 30
A fan commented: "Can't wait to start seeing him on Live! regularly," while another said: "You are very lucky," and a third added: "HBD, can't wait till you's on together."
