Like any mom, Kelly Ripa gets giddy when her kid comes home from college — even if it means 56 pounds of laundry! On Sunday, November 13, the Live! With Kelly host shared a selfie with her husband, Mark Consuelos, and their three children, Joaquin, 13, Lola, 15, and Michael, 19. “The band is back together!” Ripa, captioned the sweet shot of her look-alike brood.
Ripa and Consuelos’ oldest son, Michael, headed off to university in August and is studying film and television. “I’ve got big plans for his bedroom,” the 46-year-old mom joked on Live! in June. “That bedroom is going to be turned into a mega closet.”
Meanwhile, Consuelos packed in some serious quality time with Michael and Lola last summer. The three lived together in L.A., where the 45-year-old’s baseball drama, Pitch, shoots. “We’re very much like roommates,” Consuelos said at Fox’s Television Critics Association press day in August. “It’s easy. The kids are older now. There’s no changing diapers. There’s no midnight feedings. In the past, maybe we wouldn’t take a job that’s so far away, but now it’s cool.”
Consuelos went on to reveal that Lola is eyeing colleges on the West Coast. “She loves Los Angeles,” the former All My Children star shared at the event. “She wants to figure out a way to live here permanently. There’s UCLA or USC. I told her in a few years, come out and do that. My oldest son is interning at a production company throughout the week so they’re pretty busy.”
