Kelly Ripa teased the announcement of her new Live! permanent co-host on Monday, with a slightly cryptic Twitter post over the weekend.

In the short video shared with her followers on Sunday, Ripa sips from a Live with Kelly mug with a question mark on it. "Tune in tomorrow. Trust me," she says.

The 46-year-old talk show host has been anchoring Live! solo since the shocking early departure of Michael Strahan in May 2016. Since then, there have been a slew of guest co-hosts, including Michael Buble, Jerry O'Connell and even Christian Slater.
