Kelly shared several never-before-seen photos of her son growing up 

They enjoy going to Ann Arbor – where they have a rental home – at the weekends and during the holidays, and most recently paid a visit to their youngest child at the end of January, which they opened up about on Live! the following day.

What makes Joaquin’s success even more amazing is that he is “profoundly dyslexic and dysgraphic”.

Kelly wrote about her son’s dyslexia and dysgraphia in her book Live Wire, noting that she noticed the conditions when he struggled with reading and writing during childhood.

Joaquin is loving life at college 

They enrolled him in a school to aid those with learning disabilities, which she stated made all the difference and saw him “on his path to not only loving school but excelling at it.”

He graduated in 2021 from the school Honors Society, also winning achievement awards in math, art, and science and ultimately headed off to university to join their renowned wrestling team.
