Personal Life

Despite her on-camera appearances on a daily basis, the 31-year-old Kelly has somehow managed to keep her personal life quite private and far from the media as there aren’t many relevant yet available details about it. However, it appears that she is in a long-term relationship and about to marry soon, although the identity of the lucky guy still remains unknown at the present date.

Kelly is also quite active on several popular social media networks such as Facebook, Twitter  and Instagram on which she’s amassed a total of nearly 42,000 fans altogether.

Rippin sports a slim and toned body figure with a genuine hourglass silhouette, although the information about her vital statistics still remains undisclosed. It is certain that all these ‘perks’ which in addition to her long brunette hair and brown-colored eyes make her appearance quite alluring, and have probably helped her to become a popular TV anchor and reporter.
