Rather than planning a huge, star-studded party, Kelly said: “There’s so much pressure because it’s my 40th. I’m doing a chill dinner and then I’m going hiking with some friends.”

Celebrating 40 all summer long. Celebrating myself.” Kelly has had an incredible year so far and has plenty to be proud of.
