Kelly Ripa posted a photo of her lookalike daughter on Instagram in honor of her 14th birthday. According to Daily Mail, the mom and daughter look very similar, save for their different hair colors. For many, it’s hard to believe that Lola is already 14. It seems like just yesterday Kelly was telling Regis Philbin that she was pregnant, and now she has a beautiful teenager (and two handsome sons, too!).
“The two are flashing their strikingly similar smiles and piercing light eyes while gazing at the camera, with the sun glistening in the background.”
Kelly Ripa and her lookalike daughter seem to get along really well, but that doesn’t mean that they are always on the best of terms with each other. Ripa recently opened up about parenting, and said that she still holds her kids accountable, and adds punishment and consequences when she needs to.
“She recently lost her computer and phone privileges, so it’s like taking away oxygen. She broke the rules. She was texting when she should have been studying for Spanish. I’m like, ‘You’re half-Mexican. Your grandmother is a Spanish teacher. You’re not allowed to fail Spanish. It’s the one thing you’re not allowed to fail!’ I don’t think she likes me, but I don’t care. I’m like, ‘I’m not your friend, I’m your mom.”‘
According to E! News, Ripa seems to have a really good attitude about raising teenagers (son Michael is 18, son Joaquin is 12). Back in April, Ripa did an impression of a “valley girl” teenager while on David Letterman — she’s a cool mom, and she totally gets it.
“I don’t even understand why I can’t have a teeny bikini because all my friends have one. And you and Dad are just, like, you’re just like such strict parents! I don’t even understand why I can’t have any privacy in the world.'”
And get this: Kelly Ripa could have another lookalike daughter soon — only kidding.
As previously reported by the Inquisitr, Kelly recently hinted that she could be pregnant again. While her comments were meant to be taken as a joke, some people were curious to know if Kelly and her husband, Mark Consuelos, were preparing for baby no. 4. Of course, anything is possible. Ripa is only 43 years old, so another baby wouldn’t be out of the question. But it seems clear that she is done having kids, and that she was just being silly.
