Kelly explained that life was an "emotional roller coaster" during this time.

Kelly also said she had to make sure she was working and making time for her kids. "I'm not an absentee mom. I'm a full-on mom," she said. "I already have abandonment issues, so I don't want to pass those down."

Kelly went on to say her issues weren't something she would ever "get rid of," but something that is "always going to present itself."

Kelly gave an example from her own life, saying, "You get married and you're like, 'Oh, I have no one for the dance or to walk me down the aisle. You know what? I'm not going to get married, just going to elope,'" she said.

Kelly made sure to keep positive, which we hope she's still doing now!

"There are always things that happen that come up that bum you out, but at the same time you've got to recognize at some point though, that it's made you who you are. You are thankful and I'm a very strong individual."
