Kelly has children River Rose, three, and Remington Alexander, 19 months with her husband Brandon Blackstock.

She has said she wants to be a good role model for her children and thinks it is 'really crucial' to teach them the importance of self-esteem.

She said: 'I said, "You tell mommy if somebody does anything inappropriate. You stand up for yourself." Even from a young age, I think you should instill that people, your children, should always stand up for themselves or speak out when something is wrong.

'I think if we start it at that young age, and you start molding people and growing to these very elevated individuals that help elevate society. It's a really crucial time when you have children right now.'
