All eyes are on Kelly Ripa's daughter Lola Grace Consuelos this week. The talk show queen's only daughter yesterday turned 20, and 50-year-old Kelly made a giant deal over the birthday on her Instagram. On Wednesday, the Live! With Kelly and Ryan host dedicated an update to Lola kissing her teens goodbye, sharing a backyard grass snap of NYU student Lola as she rocked a bikini - there was even a joke about the girl with "big feet." Check it out below.

Happy Birthday Lola


Scroll for the photo. Lola is the middle child to Kelly and 1996-married husband Mark Consuelos, with the blonde and her actor husband also parents to sons Michael and Joaquin. Lola, in the news this year for a BBQ shot with dad Mark, had been snapped in a gorgeous black-and-white photo, one void of any Instagram flaunting, but rather touting a carefree finish.

Lola was on a towel amid grass and wicker furnishings, peeping a swimwear look as she clutched her knees, also wearing white sneakers.

Kelly took to her caption with a bit of a joke, writing: "Happy 20th birthday to the little lady with the big feet @theyoungestyung ♥️♥️🎉🎉🎂🎂👣👣we love you so much! You are our favorite daughter, no doubt! (This was the approved photo)."

Photos being "approved" by Lola are a bit of an in-joke as the fiercely private beauty keeps her Instagram thread-bare and, in 2019, took 20 hours to say "ok" as mom Kelly wanted to share her prom photos. See the reactions after the snap.

Kelly's followers have been replying by the masses, and it looks like everyone is blown away by how beautiful Lola is. Mark, 50, leads the comments with his string of heart emoji. Meanwhile, TV personality Carrie Ann Inaba wrote:

"Happy Birthday Lola. The wisest of the wise…. Love you! ❤️🙌 it’s been beautiful witnessing you grow into such a beautiful and grounded soul…. No easy feat in this world). Big hugs from LA." A like also came in from 46-year-old co-host Ryan Seacrest. More photos below.

Fans Spot The 'Approval'

Lola, also known for saying she's grossed out as Kelly and Mark flirt on Instagram, had fans spotting Kelly's caption. "Approved photo ✔️ approved caption? Jury is out," one user joked. Lola once came with more photos of herself on social media, but she this year wiped her feed clean, bar one yacht snap.

Kelly and Mark, meanwhile, have made 2021 headlines for celebrating 25 years of marriage, with Kelly even getting a tiny tattoo to mark the 1996 knot-tie date.
