It’s been a wild week for Kelly Ripa! The 50-year-old just dropped the big bombshell that her college-aged daughter Lola Consuelos has popped her voting cherry! Escorting her 19-year-old to drop off her first ballot ever ahead of the Halloween weekend, the “LIVE With Kelly and Ryan” host snapped away like the proud mama bear she is!
Taking to her social media on Friday, October 30, Kelly Ripa revealed that she voted earlier this week and now, it was her daughter’s turn!
Lola, who was unable to vote in the 2016 election because of her age, took the opportunity by the horns this time. Proving that neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night could keep her daughter from voting in the 2020 election, Kelly Ripa’s daughter posed proudly with her “I Voted” sticker displayed crossed her chest while holding up her umbrella.
Wearing an oversized Adidas zip-up, Lola Consuelos protected herself by wearing her mask but it was clear, she was beaming with happiness underneath.
Scroll to see the shots!
In another shot, Kelly Ripa snuck under the umbrella with her daughter and the two posed together with their stickers proudly on display. Lola Consuelos wasn’t Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos‘ only spawn who took charge this election. Their oldest son, Michael Consuelos, voted too marking his second time ever!
“Couple of chips off the ol’ block ?????? ,” the morning show host captioned several of the family voting shots while making it known it was her daughter’s very first time!
“#iamavoter (Lola’s first election!) Michael and i voted a couple of days ago, but had to grab a pic of @theyoungestyung ♥️?? #vote2020 (check on early voting times by clinking the link in my bio),” Kelly Ripa added.
The “LIVE With Kelly and Ryan” host has been in the headlines lately, ever since running the show solo when Ryan Seacrest left her high and dry. Once he returned, the two were in full Halloween mode and Kelly Ripa caused a stir with her leggy Wonder Woman costume.
Her revealing throwback costume sparked concerns over her weight with trolls telling the star that she’s “too skinny” and needs to “eat.” Kelly Ripa didn’t seem to be bothered by the body shamers because she ignored the naysayers and dropped even MORE throwback shots! That wasn’t the only scandal up Kelly Ripa’s sleeve this week.
