In the past, Kelly has been vocal about her thoughts on dropping her son off at college. On ‘Live With Kelly And Ryan,’ she said: “We became empty nesters. We took our youngest son to college, we dropped him off. It was hard. It was really hard.”
She continued: “It’s one of those things where you can never be ready. We’ve done it before but the other two, they stayed in New York so we knew they were there, even though their visits weren’t as frequent as we thought.”
What is her son studying?
As per the University website, Joaquin is enrolled in the School of Music, Theatre & Dance, majoring in theatre performance. Along with managing studies, he is also part of the wrestling team as he joined as a freshman.

How many children does the actress have?
Kelly has three children. Along with Joaquin, she is also a proud mother to Michael, 24, and Lola, 20. For those who have seen Kelly on television, it will come as no surprise that she talks about parenting while poking fun of her children.
For instance, back in December 2021, she said: “hey don’t know who they are. As a matter of fact, each one of my kids accuses the other child of being my favorite. Constantly. They’re like, ‘Well, you’re mom’s favorite.’ ‘No you are.’ ‘No, you are!’ And that’s the best game to play, isn’t it? You never know who is going to benefit at the reading of the will.”
At the end of the day, Kelly has always been there for her children and it is no surprise that she often makes visits to Michigan.
