Mark shared the sweet selfies with Kelly to wish her a happy birthday

This birthday is very different from last year when they were forced to spend her milestone day apart due to the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Mark was filming his show in Canada and Kelly was in New York with their three children.

This is also the first birthday Kelly is celebrating as an empty-nester. The pair recently bid farewell to their youngest, Joaquin, who started college at Michigan State.

It will be fun to find out what Kelly and Mark’s offspring do for their mom this year. To celebrate her 50th, they gifted her with a sweet video in which they all explained what they love most about her. 

Kelly was forced to apologize to Joaquin, Lola and Michael, though as she’d yelled at them for coming home to film it.

“It’s all coming into focus,” she said to her co-host, Ryan Seacrest, after watching the video on-air. “I literally walked into the house the other day and I was like ‘what are you all doing here?’ I was so mean to them. 

“I was like ‘what are these kids doing back in this house bringing COVID into my house?’ Now I feel bad and I’m sorry everybody.”
