'Live' Co-Host Kelly Ripa Laughs with Daughter Lola in a Throwback Photo on National Daughters Day

Kelly Ripa and her daughter are all loved up in a recent photo posted on social media while celebrating National Daughters Day. 

Shortly after Lola Consuelos gained admission into NY University, her mother, Kelly Ripa celebrated the National Daughter's Day by taking to her Instagram page to post a memorable photo of the duo while Lola was still much younger.

The throwback photo of both Ripa and daughter was captioned:

"Happy #nationaldaughterday Lola I'm the luckiest to call you mine."  

The now 18-year-old lady is seen in a black sweatshirt and army green trousers, matching it with a black pair of shoes. While the actress is wearing a blonde look, a white shirt and black shorts with her toenails painted red.

She passionately holds her only daughter tightly with her black bag, as they both smiled at the camera. 


The mother of three and her husband, Mark Consuelos, a few months ago dropped off Lola at the University for the first semester.

In a picture captioned "The nest is getting roomy,"  Kelly is seen kissing and hugging her only daughter at the dropoff.

The 48-year-old TV host said:

"There weren't real tears but there were lots of 'Don't think I'm gonna be home before Thanksgiving because I'm not. I'm not gonna be home before Thanksgiving. You won't see me before Thanksgiving."

Their other two sons, Michael and Joaquin also attend NYU. Kelly worries that Lola would have to share a room and bath with five other students; the bathroom thing makes her more worried.

She, however, explained her preference to see her kids study far away, so they can be able to do certain things on their own, become independent — unfortunately, her kids school within proximity of their residence in New York.


Ripa gets a shock from her daughter, as the latter didn't bother to seek her parents' consent to make changes to her prom outfit. Lola, who recently concluded her high school education is seen in a skintight, satin green gown that is quite revealing.

Although the teenager looked fantastic, Ripa didn't approve the dress. Her mother revealed that the changes made to the gown were unknown to her until she saw it.
