Kelly Ripa starred on the ABC daytime soap opera All My Children from 1990 to 2002 and on the ABC sitcom Hope & Faith from 2003 to 2006, but she’s better known for following in Kathie Lee Gifford’s footsteps on the morning show now called Live With Kelly and Mark. Ripa joined Regis Philbin on the program in 2001 and was paired with several cohosts through the years before her husband, Mark Consuelos, took over in 2023.
Ripa and Consuelos met on the set of All My Children in 1995 and married the following year. They welcomed son Michael in 1997, daughter Lola in 2001 and son Joaquin in 2003. Ripa and Consuelos own Milojo, a New York-based production company that primarily produces documentaries and non-scripted series.
