Chris Pratt was thrilled to be the first guest on Live! With Kelly and Ryan.
After Kelly Ripa revealed at the top of Monday's show that Ryan Seacrest would be her permanent co-host, the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 star walked out onto the Live! set carrying bouquets of red roses and a bundle of balloons. "No better way to celebrate this epic moment then to deliver flowers your P.A. gave to me," Pratt quipped as he handed the gifts to the co-hosts.
Pratt also recalled getting his star on Hollywood's Walk of Fame, and pointed out that both Ripa and Seacrest already had their names on the sidewalk. "My star, right next to your star," Pratt told Ripa, joking that he didn't want the star if it wasn't located by the 46-year-old TV personality.
Seacrest had a great first day at his new job, and toasted the "new Live!" with Ripa at the end of the show. "Let me say, thank you very much," he told his new co-host. "It is such a pleasure to be with you every morning."
"Thank you for uprooting your life," Ripa added, making reference to Seacrest relocating to New York City on the weekdays. "Welcome to the family."
