Kelly Ripa is one proud mom! The TV host posted photos of her daughter, Lola Consuelos, voting for the first time on Saturday. In the pic, the 19-year-old is outside, holding an umbrella and wearing a sticker that reads "I voted early." The slideshow also show's Ripa's 23-year-old son, Michael, also holding up his voting sticker.
"Couple of chips off the ol’ block 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸 #iamavoter (Lola’s first election!) Michael and i voted a couple of days ago, but had to grab a pic of @theyoungestyung ♥️💙 #vote2020," Ripa captioned her pic.
Ripa's husband, Mark Consuelos, also praised his children writing, "Love this so much!!!!♥️♥️♥️." The couple are also parents to 17-year-old son Joaquin.
Ripa got a number of messages from her famous friends, including Lisa Rinna who wrote, "#ProoudMommaMoment 🙌🏼♥️🙌🏼♥️."
Sarah Michelle Gellar also replied, "I still can’t believe you have two children old enough to vote - how is that possible."
Ripa has previously opened up about how her daughter has taught her "so much about being a modern-day woman."
"It really gives me hope -- her generation really supports each other, the way she and her friends have each other’s backs," she told People. "For all the talk about women helping other women, I see it in her generation in a way I never have before."
As for what Lola's learned from her parents, the teen says her dad taught her "to take everything day by day -- not to dwell on the past but to focus on the future."
