Kelly Ripa Shares a Silly Daughter-Approved Holiday Pic With Her Kids and Mark Consuelos
By Liz Calvario
Kelly Ripa and her adorable family wish you a "lit" holiday season.
The Live With Kelly and Ryan co-host shared a silly picture on Instagram of herself with her husband, Mark Consuelos, and their three kids -- Michael, 20; Lola, 16; and Joaquin, 14 -- all dressed up and getting ready for the holidays.
"Wishing you a LIT holiday season! With love from the Consuelos gang. ?✨??(and yes, Lola approved)," Ripa wrote on Friday alongside the pic, which shows her bent down making signs with her hands.
In October, Ripa told Jimmy Fallon during an appearance on TheTonight Show that her daughter, Lola, gets upset when she posts pics of her on social media.
"It’s so bizarre. I’m never allowed to post a photo of her, ever," Ripa said. "Why did I have these kids if not to exploit them on social media?"
"I was like, 'You know what? She can't get mad at an eight-year-old photo. It's a Halloween throwback Thursday.' I'm in the elevator coming up here and the phone rings and it says 'Lola’... I was like, 'Maybe I shouldn't answer it, but what if it's an emergency?'" she recalled. "She's like, 'You take it down right now! My friends follow you for some reason and they will see this!' I was like, 'You know what? I will take it down. I'll take it down for you.'”
“That was the end of the discussion. I was like, ‘I will take it down from Instagram,’” Ripa told Fallon, as he showed the adorable throwback pic to his viewers.
Earlier this week, Ripa opened up about her time working with her former Live co-host, Regis Philbin, revealing that Philbin had a “mandate” that the pair didn’t talk off-screen.
