Kelly Ripa‘s daughter, Lola Grace, is a cagey one when it comes to Instagram. The Live! with Kelly and Ryan host’s daughter had her social media accounts on full lockdown up until just recently. Fans wanting to see any of Lola’s posts had to subscribe and wait for her to accept the request.
Lola has appeared in a new set of selfies that are a rarity by virtue of how little she updates her Instagram account. While mom Kelly is pretty regular with her updates – yesterday’s share featured Kelly riding a horse while wearing a cowboy hat – Lola appears to be more cautious.
Lola last updated her Instagram feed back on September 29. Given that most 18-year-olds with accounts take to the platform much more frequently, it’s fair to say that she is unusual in this regard. Today’s photos featured the brunette taking a selfie in her bathroom. Lola was looking positively stunning as she posed near a marble bathtub, and she covered herself up with an oversized jacket. The huge black puffer coat boasted white details, and Lola jokingly referred to the outerwear in her caption, saying she’s a “biiggg jacket girl.”
Lola held her smartphone in her left hand and clutched at the jacket in her right. Fans could see the teen’s beautiful facial features, with Lola glancing upward in one snap and looking at the camera in the other.
Lola has recently embarked on a new chapter in her life. She is currently attending college, although by enrolling at NYU, she’s still close to home. Lola has appeared more often on her mother’s social media accounts this summer, as opposed to her own. She didn’t want to appear on Kelly’s feed at first, but the photos started racking up over time.
Kelly now finds herself with an increasingly empty nest. The 50-year-old has spoken about her children growing up. In fact, an interview with The Cut earlier this year saw Kelly refer to the joys of having older children.
“I can say, 100 percent, my schedule is easier now. There was a 15-year period where I went to work and then I’d head right to my kids’ school or a sporting event or made sure I was at the concert. Now that I’ve got one kid that’s almost done with college, one that’s going into college, and one that is halfway through his sophomore year of high school, I have a lot more time to free me up to do other projects. Maybe start acting again, who knows,” Kelly said.
Kelly frequently makes headlines, but Lola Grace stays out of the limelight. Today is seeing Lola shine, though.
