On the flip side, some users were critical of Ripa's appearance. "What happened to her? She does not look well at all," one person commented. Another said, "She got new lips," while others criticized her physique.

Comments like, "How can her arms be that skinny and have skin hanging? She's got to be a size 00!!" and "What is wrong with her arms?? 🀒" highlighted the scrutiny she faced. A particularly harsh comment read, "Her face looks different πŸ˜―πŸ˜’πŸ€·πŸ½β€β™€οΈπŸ€¦πŸ½β€β™€οΈ."

Ripa also shared her own Instagram post shortly before her husband's, captioned, "We are Switzerland baby πŸ‡¨πŸ‡­πŸ‡¨πŸ‡­." The candid photo showed the couple sitting happily at a table, flashing warm smiles.

Ripa, who turned 53 in October 2023, has been open about her experiences with aging. In April 2024, she discussed her struggles with loose skin on her podcast, "Let's Talk Off Camera with Kelly Ripa," during a conversation with "A Few Good Men" star, Demi Moore.

Moore, 61, joked about the effects of aging on her own body, saying her skin was "going, and having its own program." She recalled a friend's complaints about loose skin, which she hadn't understood until experiencing it herself.

Ripa related to Moore's sentiments, sharing that she avoids looking at herself naked in the mirror due to her loose skin. "I try never to turn around and look in the mirror β€” ever β€” if I'm naked," she said, comparing her skin to a "dunked teabag."

Ripa's toned appearance has been a topic of discussion, and the secrets to maintaining her fit figure are largely attributed to her diet. Celebrity nutritionist Dr. Daryl Gioffre has shared details of Ripa’s dietary regimen.

Ripa also shared her devotion to a "perfect diet" and a fitness routine seven days a week. "I'm pretty stringent about taking care of myself in a certain way," she said.

Renowned for her commitment to fitness and well-being, Ripa's regimen includes a mix of dance-cardio class AKT, SoulCycle, and running, affirming that these activities are crucial for her physical appearance and emotional wellness. She has even been with her personal trainer for over 10 years.

Beyond maintaining health and wellness, Kelly Ripa cherishes her role as a mother. She is a proud mom of threeβ€” Michael, Lola, and Joaquin. Since her youngest, Joaquin, left for college, she and her husband, Consuelos, have transitioned to being empty-nesters.

Despite the change, the couple, who have been together for over two decades, continues to treasure the New York City home where they raised their children. Their family house, once bustling with activity, reflects their taste for elegance and comfort.

Through Instagram, Ripa often provides her followers with a virtual tour of their exquisite abode, highlighting details from the opulent foyer to the spacious bedroom she shares with her husband.

However, the departure of their children β€” Michael and Lola living independently after graduating from New York University, and Joaquin attending the University of Michigan β€” has brought a quieter rhythm to their once lively home. Ripa admitted that adjusting to the empty nest wasn't easy.

"The best part is no laundry...no dishes. Nothing," Ripa joked. However, the serenity made her nostalgic, wishing for a slowed-down past when the kids were young. Their first dinner sans kids was an overly ambitious feast for 12, making them recognize their quiet home's enormity.

Yet, they didn't wallow for long. Instead, they embraced their newfound freedom. "We ate on our schedule, hiked, even went rock climbing – quite a thrill!" shared Ripa.
