A third added: "Kelly you look really pretty today."

During the past few months, Kelly and her co-host Ryan Seacrest have been presenting Live with Kelly and Ryan from their respective homes. For part of the lockdown, the mother-of-three and her family were quarantined in the Caribbean, having found themselves unable to get back from there after travel restrictions were implemented during their holiday.

The All My Children actress has been isolating with husband Mark Consuelos and their children Michael, Lola and Joaquin. On Tuesday's show, Kelly admitted that it had been the first time in a while that her kids had spent a long period of time living with their dad, as Mark is often away travelling for work. As a result, he is regarded as the "favourite parent" as he doesn't discipline them or implement rules as often.

When asked by Ryan whether she was the favourite parent, Kelly replied: "Mark's the favourite parent." She explained: "Well, first of all, this is the first time the kids have lived with him for an extended period of time. So maybe by the end of the lockdown we will be equal. But for years I was the one who took them to be vaccinated, I was the one who made them do their homework. I was the one who gave them cod liver oil before they made the delicious little supplements."

Kelly then joked: "So they associate me with pain and suffering, and they associate him with coming home at the weekends with airport gifts. Like 'Daddy's home!'"
