Kelly and Mark have been reunited after working apart 

Kelly and Mark are loving living together once again and recently had a festive day out together with their dog Chewie too. 

The lovebirds posted a gorgeous selfie with their pet pooch during a stroll in Central Park. 

When it comes to parenting, Kelly has admitted Mark is "the fun one" as he would lavish the children with gifts after working away and she would be left to discipline them. 

"For years I was the one who took them to be vaccinated, I was the one who made them do their homework," she said on an episode of her show. "I was the one who gave them cod liver oil before they made the delicious little supplements.

"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!'"
