Over the weekend, the celebrity couple reunited with relatives to celebrate Kelly's dad Joseph's birthday and Fourth of July on Saturday. The TV presenter shared footage on Instagram of them watching an incredible firework display, joined by their nephew Sergio.

Kelly and Mark were no doubt happy to be in New York to mark Fourth of July, having recently returned to the city following a longer-than-planned trip to the Caribbean. The family had found themselves unable to return to the Big Apple when the lockdown restrictions were implemented.

Kelly has still been filming with co-host Ryan Seacrest for their daytime TV show, with the pair broadcasting from their respective homes. Kelly also made a subtle reference to being away from her main home after revealing that she had run out of new outfits to wear while presenting Live with Kelly and Ryan, which had resulted in her having to borrow her daughter Lola's clothes. During an episode of the daytime show, the star said: "I'm now in my daughter's clothes. It's gone there."

Despite their eventful lockdown, Kelly and her family have been enjoying spending quality time together, and have had a lot to celebrate, including Lola's birthday, Father's Day, and Michael's graduation.
