Let’s go, Michigan! Weeks after Kelly Ripa gave a ‘painful’ goodbye to her son, she and husband Mark Consuelos visited Joaquin in school – and took in a Michigan Wolverines recreation!
“Go Blue!” Kelly Ripa captioned the Instagram put up she printed on Saturday (Sept. 25). In the image, Kelly, 50, smiles from ear to ear – and there’s a very good motive for that. To her left stands husband Mark Consuelos and their eighteen-year-old son, Joaquin. The Live host and Riverdale star traveled to the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor to go to Joaquin and see the Michigan Wolverines hand the Rutgers Scarlet Knights their first lack of the season, 20-13.

“Go Blue!! So jealous,” added Lizzie Tisch within the feedback, whereas comedian e book artist (and Deadpool creator) Rob Liefeld added a “Raising Both Hands In Celebration” emoji. Monica Magnin, the life-style correspondent for Live, added, “The cutest!!! Hope it was so fun!!” Holly Robison Peete commented, “Omgggg, how exciting! [football emoji] [blue heart emoji].” Ayyyyye. My fam getting it in,” commented Dondré T. Whitfield. “Love it. Waiting for my Michigan Wrestling hoodie to arrive.”
This joyous reunion at Michigan Stadium – aka “The Big House” – comes weeks after Kelly shared how onerous it was for her to drop her son off in school. “We became empty nesters. We took our youngest son to college. We dropped him off,” she stated throughout the Sept. 7 episode of Live with Kelly and Ryan. The two even have a son Michael, 24, and a 20-year-old daughter Lola, so Joaquin’s departure meant that each one Kelly’s youngsters had grown up. Saying goodbye was “actually brutally painful,” stated Kelly. “I gave him a hug, and I said, ‘I did not realize that 18 years would go so fast.’ And he didn’t say anything. He was just giving me a hug.”
“He turned to walk away, and I said, ‘Wait, Joaquin, one more!’ And he kept walking. And I knew that it was happening to him too, the emotion,” she stated. It’s a type of issues the place, you may by no means be prepared. But it’s humorous. It appeared like it will be without end from the time Michael left to Joaquin.”
Though, Kelly has shared that issues haven’t been all unhealthy for the reason that youngsters have moved out. During the Sept. 20 episode of Live, Kelly revealed that Mark, 50, likes to settle their difficulties with some “sexy time.” Kelly stated that Mark likes to “nip things in the bud” by asking, “Oh, you’re upset? I know how to take care of that. Oh, you don’t feel good about something? I’ll take care of that. Oh, you’re feeling like maybe you’re overworked? I got you. I know what you need.” So, there are some advantages to having the home all to your self.
