Megyn Kelly's Kids Think She's Just a Normal Mom

Megyn Kelly’s kids think she’s Susie Homemaker, not a formidable Fox News anchor who has accused Nancy Pelosi of sexism and declared Santa white. This is probably better for the kids and, honestly, won’t someone think of the children?

Kelly shared with People that she’s a regular, cool mom during the day and a right-wing media all star by night.

“I have a set up that allows me to be a stay-at-home mom in the day and fulltime employee in the night,” she tells PEOPLE. “It works out well for my home and work life, but it doesn’t leave a lot of time for rest.”

One question: if you’ve got a husband, what do you need a night time babysitter for? What’s that guy doing? I am curious.

“I don’t think they know I’m actually on TV for a living,” she says of her daughter Yardley Evans, 3½, and two sons, Edward Yates, 5, and Thatcher Bray, 15 months.
“But my husband [Doug Brunt] recently came on the show to talk about his new novel, so we showed them that segment because it was Mommy and Daddy,” she shares. “They reacted as if they had never seen me on television before, running up to the screen and waving.”

Kelly’s mother’s reaction to her daughter on TV, however, crosses political lines.

“We have a very good, very funny relationship,” Kelly says. “She’s hilarious. She’ll say, ‘You look beautiful, but not in that color.’ Or ‘Your hair is too long.’ She’s a mom, it’s what they do.”

I think that’s Republican for ‘Ugh, whatever mom.’
