Who is Kelly Hyland?
American TV personality and social media star Kelly Hyland was born under the zodiac sign Taurus on 16 May 1971, in Pennsylvania USA. She’s today hosting a podcast called “Because Mom Said So”, together with her friends, while she’s perhaps known best for having starred in the reality competition show “Dance Moms”, which aired from 2011 through 2019, and also starred Holly Frazier, Nia Sioux and Abby Lee Miller. It follows mothers and their children as they’re competing in dancing; the show won two of its eight award nominations.
Kelly went on to appear in a number of other reality shows and talk-shows, which include “Entertainment Tonight” and “Dance Moms Funniest Fights”.
Education and early life
Kelly was raised alongside her older sister in Pennsylvania, by their mother and father whom Kelly’s featured in a number of her Instagram pictures and videos, however, because she respects their privacy, she hasn’t revealed their names and professions; it’s widely believed that her mother was a social worker, and her father a car mechanic.
Kelly studied at a local high school and was into several activities during her time there, while she was perhaps mostly into dancing; as Kelly hasn’t achieved her dreams of becoming a professional dancer, she chose to give her children a chance which she never had, and enrolled them at dance school when they were only two years old.
Because of family issues, Kelly dropped out of high school and hasn’t taken her GED tests to this day; she’s stated multiple times in public that she regrets not completing her education, and won’t allow this to happen to her children.
