Kelly Ripa‘s stunning daughter Lola Grace Consuelos is officially 19 today. The “Live! With Kelly and Ryan” host’s daughter – shared with “Riverdale” star husband Mark Consuelos – got a massive batch of shout-outs from her 49-year-old mom on Tuesday. Lola, who fled the Ripa/Consuelos nest in 2019 to study at NYU, filled her mother’s Instagram today with both permanent posts and stories. Lola – who had her own Instagram on lockdown until recently – is notoriously shy on social media. She’s also a total beauty, with mom Kelly sharing rare snaps of her today.
Scroll for the latest shots, although the above – seeing Lola with boyfriend Tarek Fahmy – is a perfect reminder of the stunner that she is. Lola, sandwiched between siblings 17-year-old Joaquin and 22-year-old Michael, was seen in a series of baby and childhood shots posted by former “All My Children” actress Kelly. The blonde also shared grown-up photos of Lola as she posed with the family. Kelly revealed Lola’s top birthday wish – “[Lola] told us all she wanted to do was sleep for her birthday,” the star said on today’s episode of “Live.” More after the video.
The sweet snapshot seeing Lola rock a white minidress might have gotten noticed by Instagram, but talk about Lola was also the focus after Kelly’s “sleep” statement to co-host Ryan Seacrest. The “American Idol” face replied: “She said that to you but what she meant was, ‘Mom, I’d love for you to walk in while I’m fast asleep on a national television show and say happy birthday so America and Canada can see it all unfold.'” Kelly, laughing, replied that it was a “good idea.” Scroll for more of Lola.
Kelly added: “The days are long but the years are short… I’ve blinked and my daughter is 19 years old,” continuing: “I’m so proud of her.” Lola, who has already wowed Instagram with her singing skills, has 224,000 Instagram followers. She lists her location as New York City and tends not to update all that often, although her trip to Egypt back in January came with stunning photos – it was a couples deal with Lola’s boyfriend. Lola has, however, made headlines this year for having her parents “cancel” her debit card after pricey Postmates orders. Check it out below, plus the baby photos Kelly posted today.
January 2020 saw Kelly reveal that she and Mark had blocked Lola’s debit card after the teen was spending a little too freely on her takeout. “She’s at college and we signed her up for a meal program, cause we’re not monsters. But you know, she doesn’t like the meals at school, so she was ordering Postmates,” Kelly said, adding; “She would order the $7 salad but it would cost $25 dollars to have it delivered three blocks in New York City.” The star then confirmed she’d “shut down” her teenager’s card.
