Kelly Ripa Accepts an Award at an LGBTQ Gala Hosted by The Trevor Project

Kelly Ripa was the center of attraction as she stole the show in sheer black gown at the TrevorLIVE Gala On June 17. This comes after she and hubby, Mark Consuelos, celebrated their daughter’s 18th birthday.

Kelly Ripa never fails to turn heads anywhere she steps into, and the just-concluded TrevorLIVE Gala was no exception.

Dressed in a stylish black gown that featured sheer sleeves and ruffled high-neck, the host of “Live! With Kelly” hit the red carpet with her husband of 23 years.

Kelly looked every bit of the fashionista that she is in the ankle-length dress, which she paired with strappy heels. She accessorized with a pair of simple stud earrings and carried a shiny silver clutch. Her husband, Mark Consuelos, was also looking dapper in a black suit pair with a white shirt.

The gala which took place at Cipriani Wall Street was organized by The Trevor Project, an organization that provides crisis intervention and suicide prevention services to people of the LGBT community. Its mission is to end suicide among youths of the LGBTQ+ community.

Kelly and Mark were honored at the ceremony as they were recipients of the Trevor Champions Award.

Earlier that day, Kelly and Mark confessed on “Live! With Kelly” that their 18-year-old daughter walked in them having sex. Ripa explained that it happened on the morning of Lola’s birthday on June 16 that the occurrence happened. Coincidentally, that was also Father’s Day.


Although Kelly and Mark might have ruined their daughter’s day with their sexcapade, it didn’t stop it from being a special moment for both Lola and Mark.

The mother-of-three celebrated both her daughter and husband with a sweet message on Instagram that read:

“18 years ago, i came up with the best Father’s Day present for @instasuelos. Happy Birthday, @theyoungestyung we love you so much we actually punch ourselves in the face.”

Kelly shared a video collage that showed several throwbacks of Lola. Mark and Kelly met in 1995 and eloped in May 1996. They have three beautiful kids!
