Kelly Ripa Shares Adorable 19th Birthday Tribute For Daughter Lola: ‘Heart And Soul Of Our Family’
Kelly Ripa took to Instagram on Tuesday, June 16 to share an adorable birthday tribute for her only daughter, Lola Consuelos. The mom of three posted a nostalgic birthday tribute for the now 19-year-old, whom she shares with husband Mark Consuelos. The upload included several sweet photos of the teenager as a baby and a child.
Kelly kicked off the birthday upload with a shot of Lola as a kid in a red and white striped shirt with her hand on a blue locker. She then took things back to a few year prior, to when her daughter was a baby. The sweet photo showed Lola lying down in a light pink dress with a matching bow in her hair.
The third image showed Lola with her dad. The Riverdale actor held his baby daughter tightly as they took a dip in the pool together.
The multi-photo upload included a number of other photos of Lola as a baby, flashing a very big grin at the camera.
Kelly also included Lola’s brothers, now 17-year-old Joaquin and 23-year-old Michael, in the snaps.
In the caption, the Live with Kelly and Ryan host — who recently cut her son’s hair in a video shared on Live as the family remains locked down together amid the ongoing pandemic — put her love for her daughter into words.
In part, the former All My Children actress referred to her daughter as being the “heart and soul of our family” as she told Lola how much she, Mark, and her brothers all love her. She added a number of different emoji to her post, including several red love hearts and birthday cakes. She also tagged Lola’s official Instagram account.
The comments section was flooded with sweet birthday messages for Lola from Kelly’s 2.8 million followers.
“Happy Birthday Beautiful! Have a fun and loving day!” one person wrote.
“Great pictures Kelly. Happy Birthday to Lola hope she has an amazing day,” read another comment.
“She has her mommas smile. Happy bday!!!” a third person remarked, including two heart-eye emoji with their message.
Lola may be celebrating her birthday in the sunshine this year, as it’s thought that Kelly and her family are still locked down in the Caribbean. The Consuelos family headed out on vacation prior to the coronavirus lockdown and it is rumored they decided to stay there and shelter in place rather than head back to New York.
Kelly has filmed new episodes of Live with co-host Ryan Seacrest, who’s currently in California, remotely, following social distancing guidelines ever since.
