Kelly shared the hilarious update on Instagram

In the book, Kelly penned the most hilarious message which read: "Dear Doctor Anolik, The true love of my life. Thank you for keeping me 5-10 years longer looking than [Sam]. Love Kelly XO."

The candid update came just days after Kelly made her return to her show Live With Kelly and Ryan after a bout of illness which left fans concerned.

The ABC host sat down with co-host Ryan Seacrest on Monday to discuss her return, including when she realized she had to take more days off before making her comeback.

"Last week, the better I felt, the worse I sounded," was what she said at the top of the show, still sucking on a throat lozenge to ease her irritation.

She then described the show's producer Michael Gelman asking her to leave and get some rest in order to not exert herself further.

She recounted: "You have to leave. You're a talk show host and you have no voice, and there's no point in you being here."
