Kelly Ripa's daughter, 17, makes a rare red carpet appearance with mom and she is so grown up
On Sunday evening in New York City Kelly Ripa’s daughter, Lola joined her mother at an annual event, and she looks gorgeous.
Held at Manhattan’s American Museum of Natural History, the 12th Annual CNN Heroes: An All-Star Tribute drew many celebrities but the rare appearance of daughter Lola, already 17, called for some attention.
The mother-daughter pair stunned on the red carpet as both appeared to be in high spirits. Lola looked gorgeous in a dark green dress with black heels and an anklet, while mum Kelly dazzled in a three-quarter-long black partially sequenced dress and matching black heels.

Longtime friend, Anderson Cooper of CNN joined Lola and Kelly on the red carpet. Kelly and handsome husband, Mark Consuelos also have to boys, 15-year-old Joaquin, and 21-year-old Michael.
To Kelly, it feels like yesterday that her children were still little, as she posted some never seen before throwback pictures of her with her beautiful three children a few months ago.
As a caption alongside an exhausted-looking Kelly in one of the pictures with her children when they were still very young, she reminded everyone of how exhausting it can be to go on vacation with small children and wrote:
“A #tbt 2003 reminder: ‘a vacation with your kids is a trip, not a vacation’ -@instasuelos ”
Kelly and Mark also recently congratulated their son Michael on getting a part in the hit series, ‘Riverdale,’ and traveled to Vancouver, Canada to visit Michael on set.
Dad Mark also stars on the show as a mobster named Hiram Lodge, and in what seems to be the perfect match, Michael will play the same role as his dad, but a younger version of Hiram.
The Christmas card the family sent out this year was playful and funny as they doubled up the effort. Getting into the holiday spirit, Kelly posted a picture of husband Mark with his television family and added a funny solution to a possible holiday conundrum with the caption:
“Tired of fighting with the kids over the holiday card photo? Problem solved! Thanks, @camimendes @marisolnichols @instasuelos.”
On Tuesday Kelly shared their family's holiday greeting with the front of the card showing a picture of Mark with his 'Riversdale' family, Marisol Nichols, who plays his wife Hermione Lodge and Camilla Mendes, who plays the part of his daughter Veronica Lodge.
The wording across the picture read:
“Happy Holidays. From our family to yours (No actual wives or children were used in this photo).”
The back of the card showed the smiling family of Mark and Ripa with their three children with the wording that made the card funny, “Love, The Consuelos’ (ACTUAL FAMILY).”
