Kelly Ripa just made 2021 better. The “Live! With Kelly and Ryan” host wasted no time kissing 2020 goodbye and welcoming 2021 today, updating her Instagram with stunning pool shots with her famous family. Kelly, 50, posted snaps of herself, husband Mark Consuelos, and the 1996-married couple’s three kids, with the summery images accompanied by an uplifting caption – and yes, 19-year-old daughter Lola Grace “approved” of the images. Kelly, who wrote “SEE YA 2020” on her Christmas card, is now hoping 2021 is better. Check it out below.
Scroll for the photos. If 50-year-old Kelly is someone you follow on Instagram, you’ll have spotted the photos as similar to the ones shared as the former “All My Children” actress turned 50 in October – same setting, same stunning dress that 49-year-old hubby Mark posted.
The photos, forming a summery card, showed the talk show queen stunning in a strappy pink-and-white sundress, with the photos also showing an out-of-the-water moment as the entire Ripa/Consuelos family posed on land. Kelly then delivered a caption.
Kelly, addressing her 2.9 million followers, wrote: “Here’s to hoping this next go around is better than the year that shall remain nameless. With love and best wishes from our family to yours. (Yes, these were Lola approved.)…….#2021 ??.”
If you’re wondering about Lola’s “approval,” that’ll be Kelly’s 19-year-old daughter Lola Grace, who both took “20 hours” to green-light mom Kelly posting her 2019 prom photos and last year revealed she was “disgusted” at the thirst trap snaps Kelly posts of hubby Mark.
Kelly made headlines over Christmas, and not just for welcoming the holiday with a naughty McRib she promised is a once in a decade deal. The star went for a plunging sparkly Christmas look as she highlighted her insanely-ripped body while rocking candy cane glasses, captioning the snap: “Christmas #2020 Nice n Naughty ???.”
Christmas, meanwhile, saw the Ripa/Consuelos family finally reunited after husband Mark spent nearly four months shooting “Riverdale” out in Vancouver, Canada. He was even flirting with Kelly on IG via her Xmas tree post.
Kelly’s photo today featured her 23 and 21-year-old sons, plus Lola, and it was a similar deal for her 2020 Christmas card.
“Behold the card???We wish you health, happiness and a break from 2020. Back of the card says it all ✌????: @millermobley,” she wrote.
In other news, Kelly has been making headlines with Mark as a reboot of “All My Children” gets the go-ahead. The couple met on the sitcom, eloping back in 1996. Scroll for Kelly’s insane, deep-squatting spandex workout from her bedroom.
