The 47-year-old NBC host and her spouse of nine years stepped out for an evening at Queens’ Flushing Meadows on Monday, holding hands as they arrived to the opening night event.

For her night on the town, Kelly picked a skintight, off-the-shoulder red dress, paired with tan pumps and gold earrings.

Brunt, meanwhile, opted for a suit, which he wore sans tie on top of a white shirt for a semi-formal look.

Looking every inch the happy couple, Kelly and Brunt arrived at the event hand-in-hand, with the former Fox News anchor happily beaming at the cameras.

Brunt, meanwhile, appeared to be finishing a phone conversation as the couple made their way inside the arena, however he soon pocketed his smartphone and gamely posed for a few photos with his wife, while keeping their tickets carefully clutched in his hand.

The pair later took their seats in the VIP area to watch Russian athlete Maria Sharapova compete – and eventually win – against Romania’s Simona Halep.

Kelly and Brunt were surrounded by several other high profile specatators, including Martha Stewart, Vogue editor-in-chief and tennis fanatic Anna Wintour, and designer Vera Wang, who has attended the tennis tournament with the editrix in the past.

During the match, Kelly could be seen leaning towards her husband while shielding her mouth with her hand to tell him something.

Both of them were holding beverages for a bit of hydration and refreshment throughout the evening, which were also perhaps being used as a form of celebration. 

Last week, it was revealed that Kelly is actually the sixth highest earning TV host in the US, according to Variety, outearning Jimmy Fallon, Stephen Colbert and Jimmy Kimmel. 

Kelly tied for the sixth spot on the list with Good Morning America host Robin Roberts, with both ladies earning an estimated $18 million each for their work on competing networks, which is more than every single other late night host on the list

Kelly’s salary was of particular interest given the amount of press that surrounded her move from Fox News to NBC, with her former employer offering her a reported four-year contract that would pay her a total of $100 million to stay on as host of ‘The Kelly File.’

Reports had her new salary as low as $12 million and most seemed to believe her contract was for $15 million, but it seems those numbers were all too low.

Kelly has been spending the past few weeks gearing up for her big morning show premiere next month on September 25 at 9am in front of a live studio audience. 

This is the first time Kelly has attended the US Open since her move to NBC News earlier this year after her 13-year career at Fox News.
