Kelly briefly dates Eric Matthews in Uncle Daddy. The two get along very well, as do Eric and Kelly's son, Ryan. Eric babysits for Ryan a few times as well, but when Eric wants to play pool with Cory and his friends, Ryan runs off and gives Eric a scare.
Although Kelly isn't upset, she realizes it isn't fair of her to let Eric stay, and tells Eric that they probably shouldn't be together. Eric says he's not trying to leave, but Kelly insists that it's best for him if he's not with her.
