Kelly Ripa gets emotional as her family self-isolates during the coronavirus pandemic. Admitting she’s currently not speaking to two of her three kids.
(ET) The TV personality, who has three children, 22-year-old Michael, 18-year-old Lola, and 17-year-old Joaquin, with her husband, Mark Consuelos, admitted while co-hosting Live With Kelly and Ryan from home on Wednesday that being in quarantine hasn’t been so easy on her.
“I’m not going to lie, I’m going to let you in on a little secret. I’m currently not speaking to two of my three kids. I’m not talking to two of them,” Ripa confessed to viewers and her co-host, Ryan Seacrest. “Just because, we’re all in the same boat together. I haven’t gotten to hug my parents. I want to hug my parents. I miss hugging my parents.”
The 49-year-old co-host added that her “kids won’t hug me.”
“I’m like, ‘Guys, we’ve all been on lockdown together. We’re fine, you can give me a hug.'”
Ripa then apologized for getting so emotional. “Sorry, I don’t know why I’m crying. Maybe I’m just going to get my period, who knows. Sorry, sorry,” she said through tears. “Sometimes we forget that we’re on. Did I shout that? Did my inner monologue come out? Sorry, didn’t mean to do that, didn’t mean to do it.”
