Speaking about raising her kids not to be too entitled she said: "I didn't grow up privileged and neither did @instasuelos. We work and we expect our kids to as well."

In a People magazine interview, Kelly admitted that fans often praise their parenting and how their kids have turned out. "And now our children, who are adults, meet people who will come up to them, whether they're in a coffee shop or library, what have you, and say 'Oh, I've watched you grow up, I'm so proud of you.' And that means something to us," she said.

Speaking to Haute Living to promote her own biography, Kelly touched on her pandemic experience which had her questioning if she could be pregnant again! The presenter explained: "I started taking pregnancy tests daily, but then Mark sort of gingerly said, 'Could there be another reason why you’re not getting your period?' and me saying, 'What other reason could there possibly be?' He really had to walk on eggshells here [by explaining to me that I was probably going through menopause]."

She added: "I was really grateful that I was not going to have to explain to my kids that they were about to meet their new sibling."
