It’s hard to believe that Kelly Ripa’s daughter is old enough to go to prom, but the television host recently shared some photos of her not-so-little girl headed to the big dance.
“It only took 20 hours, but we finally got two approved prom photos,” Ripa wrote alongside a snap of her 17-year-old daughter, Lola, pinning a corsage to her date’s lapel, as well as one of mother and daughter posing together.
“#prom 2019 love you @tar3kfahmy @theyoungestyung,” she added along with two green heart emojis:
Wow! Lola’s green silk dress and low-key makeup look are stunning!
Lola’s dad is the actor Mark Consuelos, who stars on “Riverdale.” He and Ripa met as cast members on “All My Children” and married in 1996.
Consuelos also shared the same photo of his wife and daughter together on prom night, and he captioned it “My girls #prom”:
It looks like Lola Consuelos is a fan of a green dress, as she wore a different one walking the red carpet with her mom at a CNN Heroes: An All-Star Tribute event at American Museum of Natural History in 2018.
In addition to daughter Lola, the celeb parents share 16-year-old son Joaquin and 22-year-old son, Michael.
Ripa and Consuelos have often treated their kids to a walk down the red carpet, like this time in 2007 when they brought Michael and Lola to the premiere of “Shrek The Third”:
Earlier this year, the mom of three admitted she wished she had even more children in her brood with Consuelos. (Hey, they are an attractive couple!)
“I am regretful that we didn’t have more,” she told her “Live with Kelly and Ryan” co-host Ryan Seacrest. “There [are] many different reasons. First of all, triangulation. When they are small…you always have two against one. It’s just the way it is, it’s unavoidable.”
She continued, “But I also just loved having them. I adore them as the grown-ups that they’ve become. When they are tiny, they are just so adorable. And they say amazing things, and I miss all of that.”
Aww! While Ripa’s kids might not be babies anymore, they’re still adorable and amazing! Just check out this throwback photo she posted on Mother’s Day this year juxtaposed with a more recent one:
“I blinked and the second photo happened this morning,” she wrote. “I thought the exhaustion would never end…I was right. Wouldn’t change a thing. #mothersday.”
In 2018, she shared the same photo from a trip when her kids were small, and used it as an opportunity to remind parents everywhere that traveling with kids is not necessarily a “vacation”:
“A #tbt 2003 reminder: ‘a vacation with your kids is a trip, not a vacation’ – @instauselos,” she wrote.
What a beautiful family!
