Ryan Seacrest knew his fashion choices were hip, but he had no idea that he had the same taste as Kelly Ripa’s 19-year-old daughter! The “LIVE with Kelly and Ryan” hosts had a good laugh over social media after Seacrest took to Instagram to show off a brand new purchase he had made online. Usually when the “American Idol” host drops a new photo on his timeline, his 5 million fans go wild, however, Kelly Ripa couldn’t let him off the hook without a little shade.
Ryan Seacrest was definitely feeling his new look when he threw on his brand new blue and white tie-dye sweater.
“Fall came early and so did this sweater,” Seacrest captioned his photo while making an “O” face into the camera.
The photo quickly racked up over 20,000 likes from fans, but Kelly Ripa thought the sweater looked familiar and let Seacrest know who else owns the top.
“Lola just ordered that sweater…” Ripa wrote in reference to her 19-year-old daughter, Lola Consuelos.
Fans loved the playful jab between the “LIVE with Kelly and Ryan” hosts.
One female fan seconded Ripa’s comment, writing “I was gonna say, I’d really like that sweater for myself!”
“or its a ladies sweater,” another person wrote.
Not to be outdone on his own social media feed, Seacrest took to the comments and “clapped back” at his co-host by responding, “this must mean I’m on trend.”
One fan had a good idea, suggesting there should be a showdown between Seacrest and Ripa’s daughter: “There should be a segment on ‘who wore it best?’ adding, “I’m thinking Lola as an early prediction.”
The daughter of Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos has not yet addressed the sweater controversy with Ryan Seacrest, or dropped her own fire photo modeling her look, but Lola is notoriously private.
Although she does make appearences with her famous parents, Lola lives a quiet life attending school and hanging out with friends. The 19-year-old does appear on social medaia from time to time, like recently when she shared some bikini snaps during happier times when she could hang out wtih friends.
The fun shot at Ryan Seacrest by Kelly Ripa comes on the heels of having to pull double duty when the “American Idol” host called in sick with a sore throat. Ripa held down the show solo for a couple days last week while doing interviews with Bethenny Frankel and Caroline Rhea. When they returned to the show on Monday, Seacrest was feeling well-rested while Ripa appeared to still be very tired. Fans quickly piled on to Ripa, labelling her a “drama queen” in the comments on the show’s Instagram page.
