Her Personal Life:

Kelly is a workaholic. She has not uncovered any story about her personal life on Tabloids. It seems that she loves maintaining her personal life very low profile. As she has maintained privacy in her personal life, there is no any information about her children. She may have children; after all, she was married a long time back.

Despite having a busy schedule, Kelly seems to have been able to balance out personal and professional responsibilities. As she has kept her personal life relatively quiet, it can neither be assumed that she is sharing a wonderful relationship with her husband or not.
