Kelly’s co-host Ryan Seacrest was with his mother Connie, and a third team was made up of Canadian TV personality Laurie Gelman and her daughter Misha.

That day Kelly proudly swung by her Insta Stories to post a couple of snapshots of herself with her children on the set of the program.

‘The chickens together for a limited engagement……….,’ she wrote, revealing that she has the same nickname for her children that Connie has for Ryan.

Kelly then posted another snap of the four of them, tagging her children and gushing: ‘The band is back together.’

She also put a photo with her children on her Instagram page, and this time she was carrying a bouquet of flowers they presumably gave her for Mother’s Day.

During the ‘Who Knows Mom Best?’ game, Kelly’s children were able to remember her middle name de ella right off the bat, but had trouble with some other questions.

When it came to picking out the trait that Annoys Kelly most about her children, the two sides had a different take.

The children guessed that she was most irritated by their failure to respond to texts, but Kelly revealed that what really got her goat was ‘the sound of chewing.’

Kelly and her children agreed that, in her words: ‘I don’t really have a celebrity crush,’ but when forced to guess they came to different conclusions.

While Kelly diplomatically took Mark’s name, the children guessed Madonna, to which Kelly joked: ‘Well, she’s not really my crush, I mean, she’s my celebrity affair.’

When it came to charting her various hair colors over the years however, Kelly, who said it had been ‘a sandy brown,’ was then confronted with the sight of her children arguing with one another about the evolution of her look.

Naturally however they did all easily correctly guess what Kelly’s nickname for her children is – ‘chickens,’ just like Connie.

They also knew their mother quite well when it came to food, pegging that her favorite dessert is whipped cream from the can.

‘Even a broken clock is right twice a day!’ Kelly quipped, shortly before they all agreed that the children’s favorite dish she makes is spaghetti and meatballs.

The children also correctly guessed what Kelly wanted most for her Mother’s Day present this year: ‘peace and quiet.’

A couple of months ago when Joaquin turned 19, Kelly reflected on her talk-show about watching her children grow up.

She remembered that other parents would tell her: ‘The days are long but the years are short,’ but admitted that she would ‘tune them out’ because she was ‘sitting there with three kids going: “The years are long too!” ‘

However the years crept up on her and all three of her children became adults, prompting her to remark that ‘suddenly you blink and they’re gone.’
