Kelly Ripa‘s 19-year-old daughter Lola Grace just distracted Instagram, and without trying. The teen daughter to “Live! With Kelly and Ryan” host Kelly made multiple and rare appearances on her mother’s Instagram this week, with the NYU student popping up as 50-year-old Kelly shouted out two birthdays in one post. Neither were Lola’s, although Kelly did share throwbacks that included her middle child, shared with 49-year-old husband Mark Consuelos. The result is fans commenting on Lola over the whole birthday deal. Check it out below.
Scroll for the photos. If you aren’t up-to-date, Lola is Little Miss Private on social media, with 2020 seeing her wipe her entire Instagram bar one snap, and that was after she took 20 hours to green-light mom Kelly sharing her prom photos.
Kelly’s post, shared with her 2.9 million followers, came as a shout-out to both friend Elsa Marie Collins and Rachael Harris, with the former “All My Children” actress having fished out old photos that included both pals, plus, it would seem, daughter Lola.
Lola, who has shown off her chubby cheeks in her throwbacks and is now a gorgeous young woman, appeared in close-ups with her stunning facial features, also pouting in one image and showing off some mean silver hoop earrings.
“Happy birthday to two of the greatest humans i know,” Kelly wrote, adding: “@elsamariecollins and @rachaelharris You both deserve your own birthday posts, but you’re going to have to share this tribute so deal with it. I love you two do gooders. ♥️♥️??????”
The comments section, which did see many a “Happy Birthday” fly in, is also manifesting a little interest in Kelly’s middle child. “I thought that was Lola?” one fan asked, with another replying laughing as they cried: “It is!”
“Lola is beautiful!” another said, with a third suggesting the aspiring singer looks just like her “Riverdale” star dad: “Lola looks a lot like Mark. But I see Kelly in her face.”
“Lola approved pics?” was another question, although that takes on a totally different meaning. See more photos below!
Lola made headlines in 2020 for saying she’s “disgusted” by the thirst trap photos Kelly posts of 1996-married husband Mark. Kelly and her hubby are quite the NSFW flirters on Instagram, with it now one giant joke every time Kelly’s at it – fans wonder if Lola will “approve.”
Lola also made headlines towards the holidays by appearing with brothers Joaquin and Michael on Kelly’s “SEE YA 2020” Christmas card.
