Kelly Ripa Reveals The City Where She Always Got Pregnant
Kelly Ripa was pregnant three times, and she has the beautiful city of Montreal to thank for at least some of it.
The 44-year-old talk show host recently talked about the trip she and husband Mark Conseulos took to the Canadian city. In recounting the trip, Ripa shared a bit about why Montreal is so special to them.
“If you’re going to Canada, you must, must stop by Montreal…I love Montreal, it holds a very special place in my heart, in our hearts—Mark and me—we used to go there every year for our wedding anniversary…until we kept getting pregnant there,” Ripa said.
Co-host Michael Strahan joked along, telling Ripa, “I don’t think the city had anything to do with that to be honest with you.”
While Kelly Ripa always ended up pregnant when she went to Montreal, it seems she wouldn’t have traded it for anything. Ripa has talked frequently about how much she loves being a mom to her three kids, Joaquin, Lola, and Michael, even with all the work it requires.
“There’s nothing about [motherhood] that’s a 9-5 job, it’s a full-time job,” she told Us Weekly back in December. “I utilize the time that my kids are in school and at after-school practices to get stuff done, that I need to get done, so that I can spend time with them when I don’t have to… I don’t want to have to worry about the laundry when they’re home. I try to get stuff done that needs to be done before they get home from school.”
Even though Kelly has a very busy schedule, she still puts aside some time of the day for family.
“My kids get me up way before my day actually would start for work, I have to say. Around 6 a.m. That’s civilized; that’s not an unheard-of thing,” she said. “…We have breakfast together, walk to the bus stop, drop off the two older kids, walk home then I leave for work. I take my youngest to school because his school is very close to where I work, then I go to my job.”
While she may have had a good time on their Canadian vacation, it’s highly unlikely that Kelly Ripa comes back pregnant this time. The former soap opera star said back in 2010 that she and husband Mark Consuelos are done having kids. Apparently, that makes it safe for the couple to return to Montreal.
