While Kelly may look different thirty years down the line, she still appears to be drinking from the fountain of youth. 

Just recently, she turned heads when she showed off her washboard abs after a gruelling workout. 

Kelly still manages to look as gorgeous as ever 

In the picture, Kelly was dressed in a black crop top paired with an oversized T-shirt, and was seen lifting it up to showcase her toned abs.

Mom-of-three Kelly works out every day and supports this healthy way of life with a balanced diet.

The star's dedication to health was praised by Dr. Daryl Gioffre, author of Get Off Your Sugar, who opened up about Kelly's diet to HELLO! earlier in the year.

The television personality had gone to Daryl to get advice on how to kick her sugar cravings.

"If I had to define Kelly in one word, that would be balance. To meet the high demands of a very busy lifestyle, Kelly is always one step ahead by the way she takes care of her health and body," Daryl revealed.
