On Kelly's 49th birthday, Mark posted a sweet birthday tribute on Instagram to celebrate his loving wife.

"Happy Birthday to my Fave..I'm really glad you were born.. Because let's face it, if you weren't, I would've been married 3 or 4 times by now," he jokingly wrote.

"Which would've been really expensive, not to mention the super tense parent teacher conferences and all the awkward blended family holiday/vacations," he hilariously continued.

All jokes aside, he ended with: "Anyway, happy birthday sweetie."
