I think discussion so far might have not satisfied many learned friends. May be my explanation would clarify some doubts.
OP says that the couple has two kids, so obviously one will be younger and other elder.
Say couple sends elder kid to attend a function. Now what is the probability of this kid being a girl, if one kid is definitely a girl...?
I think you got it it now....!
Say younger is a girl, then there are two possibilities: elder may be a boy or a girl.
As bonanova stated correctly, OP does not specifies which kid is a girl. so younger kid could be a boy, so the third possibility is that elder could be a girl; here fourth possibility of elder being a boy, when younger is a boy, is ruled out because OP says that one kid is definitely a girl.
Now out of above three possibilities, there is only one possibility of both kids being girls.
So the answer is 1/3.
