Kelly Ripa’s youngest child is celebrating his birthday today! Wonder what his mom and dad have planned…
Happy birthday, Joaquin Consuelos! The son of All My Children couple Kelly Ripa, 40, and Mark Consuelos, 39, is turning 8 today, and you know what that means. It’s birthday party time. And we’re sure his mom, who is also the host of Live! with Regis and Kelly, has something awesome planned.
Kelly Ripa says there will be no more additions to her family — and she doesn’t have time to appear on Dancing With the Stars!
Does Kelly Ripa want to add more babies to her brood?” No — unless you’ve heard something else,” the Live With Regis and Kelly host joked to the Las Vegas Review Journal. Although she was planning on having another baby, Kelly says she and husband, Mark Consuelos, are completely content with their family of five — which includes sons Michael, 13, and Joaquin, 7, and daughter Lola, 9. “Life is really civilized. We can go out to eat at restaurants together, and I don’t have to walk a baby around the restaurant and scarf down my food and switch with Mark,” she says. “We’re all dining together. It’s really nice.”
Kelly Ripa is a bit of a shopaholic, so she worries that her daughter Lola will follow in her fashionable footsteps — and drain her bank account!
“I’m dreading it in a huge way,” Kelly Ripa tells In Touch about the day her daughter discovers the joys of retail therapy. “I’m going to be so poor!” HollyMoms, are your girls mini shopaholics? Kelly’s 9-year-old daughter is so particular about what she wears to school each day that Mom’s taken to padlocking Lola’s closet after she chooses her outfit (otherwise she’d be late for school every day)!
The Live With Regis and Kelly star knows that having three kids means you need to stick to a routine in the morning — no matter what!
Kelly Ripa may look like a tiny spark plug of a woman, but she’s really a lionness, especially when it comes to raising her kids. How else could you explain that she puts a padlock on tween daughter Lola’s closet after the 9-year-old picks out what she’s going to wear to school the next day? Wait, a padlock? Really? Yup!
