Time clearly goes by way too fast! Kelly Ripa’s now-16-year-old daughter, Lola, made a rare public appearance with her TV star mom on Sunday, December 17, — and we can’t get over how grown up and gorgeous she is today.
The mother-daughter pair attended the CNN Heroes All-Star Tribute in New York City, which Kelly was hosting alongside her best friend Anderson Cooper. This special event marked Lola’s first red carpet walk with her mom since the 2017 New Jersey Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony in May. Watch the video below to see the stunning photos of Kelly and Lola!
Kelly and her husband of 21 years, Mark Consuelos, welcomed Lola in June 2001. The longtime duo is also parents to two sons, Michael, 20, and Joaquin, 14. How sweet that Kelly decided to have a girl’s night — Mark, Michael, and Joaquin were probably so jealous!
We’re so glad Kelly and Lola made up, considering the Live With Kelly and Ryan star recently shared that she really upset her daughter after sharing a #TBT Halloween photo of her on social media without getting permission.
“I’m never allowed to post a photo of her — ever,” she said to Jimmy Fallon during an appearance on The Tonight Show. “I was like, ‘You know what? She can’t get mad at an eight-year-old photo. It’s a Halloween throwback Thursday.'” But then, her phone rang — and it was Lola. “I was debating [answering],” she laughed. “I was like, ‘Maybe I shouldn’t answer it… but what if it’s an emergency?'”
“She’s like, ‘You take it down right now! My friends follow you for some reason and they will see this!’ I was like, ‘You know what? I will take it down. I’ll take it down for you.’ And that was the end of the discussion,” Kelly added. Too funny!
Apparently, it’s a running joke in their house now. Kelly shared a family photo on Saturday, December 16, for the holidays and added a super funny caption. “Wishing you a LIT holiday season! With love from the Consuelos gang. 🔥✨💫🎄(and yes, Lola approved).” Here’s hoping we get to see more and more pics of Lola in the near future!
