Kelly Ripa is officially Santa’s little elf. The 50-year-old “Live! With Kelly and Ryan” host today appeared in a slew of Xmas sweaters on-set, with her super-festive looks coming as a twinning deal with 45-year-old co-host Ryan Seacrest. Kelly, this week in the news after Ryan was absent four days in a row, is now back with the “American Idol” host, and they’ve gone full holiday with one heck of an outfit showoff. Ugly Christmas was just one the brands donned. Check it out below.
Scroll for the looks and a video. Kelly, herself fresh from ushering in Christmas with snowy NYC videos and her naughty McRib sandwich, was snapped on set with Ryan, also filmed in backstage corridors. The former “All My Children” actress and her co-host kicked off in black, white, and green Baby Yoda sweaters from popular knitwear brand Ugly Christmas, with Kelly also seen in skin-tight black velour pants.
“How adorable are these #BabyYoda sweaters from @ugly.christmas?!” a caption read from “Live!”
Next up was a blue, red, and snowflake snowman sweater as Kelly was photographed on the set and this time baking Christmas cookies – a cheerful-looking Ryan echoed his co-host, but his look was from Tipsy Elves.
The “Live!” Instagram tends to only post one or two photos or videos a day. Friday brought fans five photos in the space of an hour, plus a video featuring executive producer Michael Gelman’s Hannukah sweater.

Kelly has been making headlines this week, and not just for being joined by Bravo face Andy Cohen and journalist Anderson Cooper as Ryan took his four days off. The mom of three’s Instagram, followed by 2.8 million, has been documenting NYC’s massive snow storm, with Kelly even sharing a cozy night in by the fire, complete with a little McDonald’s.
“Sometimes Christmas comes early. #mcrib #mcdonalds @abtvhd ♥️???(it’s once every ten years, calm down!),” she wrote.

Kelly was ahead of some people this year by putting up her tree by December 1. The star snapped her stunning one from the interiors of her $27 million NYC townhouse, a property she shares with 1996-married husband Mark Consuelos. In fact, the “Riverdale” actor featured in the caption to Kelly’s Xmas tree post as she referenced missing him – Mark was away in Canada for nearly four months while shooting the CW series.
“Even though it’s 2020, she got dressed in her fancy red skirt and ready for the return of a certain someone……?♥️?,” the caption read.
