The mom-of-three explained that due to her mom’s recent heart surgery, her parents had opted to temporarily call Kelly’s pad, their home. 

And with a price tag of $27million, we’re pretty sure they’ll feel very comfortable indeed. 

She added more details on Late Night With Seth Meyers, when she said: “We were kind of empty nesters and then my mom had heart surgery. So now we’re living with my parents. And Mark’s like, ‘That didn’t take long.’ The nest is full again but with older people.”

Esther underwent a heart procedure in September and while Kelly said she “did great,” it’s comforting for the star to be able to ensure her mom is taken good care of.

When chatting on her show Live with Kelly and Ryan though, Kelly did admit her mom was the “worst patient,” but added an adorable post-surgery story about her parents. 

At the time, Kelly told her co-host, Ryan Seacrest: “I will say this, we were [at the hospital] late last night and very early this morning. My mom was wearing this turban, if you will, a wrap on her head, and she wouldn’t wear it into surgery.

“They don’t allow that. And this morning I see that my mom was sporting the chicest French girl bob I’ve ever seen.”

She then surprised viewers by revealing the man behind the haircut was her dad. 

“She goes, ‘Ugh, I didn’t want to deal with it. I didn’t want to deal with having to worry about my hair, so I had your father cut it with the kitchen scissors,’” she said. “My dad has missed his calling as a hairstylist.”
