CNN star Anderson Cooper joined Kelly Ripa as guest host in the latest episode of “Live With Kelly and Ryan” leaving fans wondering where Ryan Seacrest was.


In recent episodes of “Live With Kelly and Ryan” fans have noticed the absence of the regular co-host, Ryan Seacrest as he seemed to give way for some guest hosts.

On Wednesday, Kelly Ripa co-hosted the Emmy-winning daytime show with CNN star Anderson Cooper. On “Live With Kelly and Ryan” official Instagram page, Ripa, 51, was seen getting prepared for the show in

The star who wore a forest green shirt and a knee length pleated skirt with a pair of black stilettos was filmed walking on a hallway on her way to the studio as Copper joined her in his dark suit while sporting his signature silver tresses.

Ripa, who is mom to three grown ups, commended Cooper, 53, on being a great dad.


While the CNN broadcaster took the seat close to Ripa on the show, her original co-host Ryan Seacrest was nowhere to be found. During the show, the mom-of-three gave no hints as to why Seacrest,45, was absent.


Seacrest is not completely missing in action as fans got to see his recent update on Instagram. He was photographed concentrating on his smartphone while sitting cross legged in a director’s chair, in his most recent media share.


Cooper is not the first to have guest-hosted on “Live” this week as fellow star and RHOA host Andy Cohen graced fans’ views on Monday and Tuesday.

Many fans were delighted to see Cooper and Ripa on the show, although they missed Seacrest. This isn't their first time together as earlier in the week, the “Anderson Cooper 360” star and the “Hope & Faith” actress hosted CNN Heroes.


During the broadcast, Cooper’s baby son, Wyatt made the cutest cameo appearance, and Ripa could not hold back on the baby-crush feelings she launched into afterwards.

The TV icon poured out her admiration as she gushed over his pretty eyes and adriabe features. Ripa, who is mom to three grown ups, commended Cooper, 53, on being a great dad.

She stated that she loved his transition to fatherhood as it was one of the best things in 2020. Presently, the 51-year-old enjoys playing grandma to baby Wyatt and Andy Cohen’s little son, Benjamin Allen.
