TV host Kelly Ripa may be famous and married to a gorgeous actor, but she's also a proud parent. Ripa gushes over her daughter's prom look.
Seizing The Opportunity To Overshare
The Live with Kelly and Ryan star took to Instagram on Thursday to give fans a glimpse of her teenage daughter's stunning prom night look.
The proud mama shared a shot of Lola Consuelos, 16, all glammed up, in a flowing purple gown, next to her similarly gorgeous date for her high school dance.
"Prom night 2018," she captioned the pic, with a handful of star emojis.
Lola's parents clearly approved of her date, too, as the Live host described him as a lovely kid with equally nice parents.
The 47-year-old actress has been telling embarrassingly true-to-life stories about her kids for the past decade on her show. In fact, Lola almost banned her mom from taking photos on the big night, knowing she'd share them with the whole nation.
However, Ripa explained on Live that luckily she got the opportunity to attend an event before the prom that was ideal for photo opps.
"They are now hosting events where ... parents are allowed to show up and take pictures ... and then your daughter can forbid you from showing them on your talk show," joked Ripa.
The TV host explained her confusion over why she couldn't use Instagram the way other proud moms can because her eldest son had the same issue when it was his prom a few years ago.
A Master Negotiator In Training
On Wednesday's edition of Live, Ripa regaled her audience with the tale of how young Lola negotiated a later curfew with her and husband Mark Consuelos.
"I want my daughter to negotiate my next contract. ... I had never seen a kid negotiate a contract this way," she told them.
The TV host explained that Lola had negotiated an extra two hours on top of her regular curfew, but was smart with how she behaved on the night in question to ensure her parents were left feeling proud rather than concerned.
"She showed up a little early so we were like, 'She's so responsible!' ... She came home 15 minutes early, and she's like, 'See? I'm home,' " Ripa explained.
The Live host and Riverdale star Consuelos have three children together: Lola, 21-year-old son Michael, and 15-year-old son Joaquin.
On the hit teen show, Consuelos plays the father of wayward teen Veronica, but it looks like in real life he has nothing to worry about with his daughter.
