Kelly Ripa told Jerry O’Connell on the premiere of “Jerry O’” that Lola Consuelos’ prom dress alterations were not parent-approved.
Kelly Ripa’s cold nights are over thanks to her beloved Mark Consuelos … body pillow.
The “Live With Kelly and Ryan” host, 49, was gifted a life-size pillow of her husband by a fan during Monday’s taping of the talk show, and it’s safe to say, she can’t get enough.
In an Instagram photo posted by a superfan, Ripa playfully engages in a tug-of-war with the viewer over her Consuelos pillow. The fan wasn’t the only one Ripa had to fight off.
“I didn’t know two of us had the same pillow,” co-host Ryan Seacrest joked as he cuddled the stuffed version of Consuelos, Ripa’s husband of 23 years.
Ripa posted several Instagram Stories embracing her fluffy hubby and even kissed the Consuelos pillow. But, it’s nothing compared to the real person, Ripa said.
“I have the real thing at home,” she told Seacrest during Thursday’s episode, adding that her “baby daddy pillow” stays in her dressing room.
She continued: “I didn’t need the pillow. When you have the real thing. … Because the pillow is just the top half of him. … the lower half is missing, and that’s my favorite half.”
The studio audience and Seacrest erupted in laughter. “I’m being honest,” Ripa said.
Ripa is not shy about showing her man some love. On his birthday in March, she posted a sweet video collage set to Jake Shears’ “Mississippi Delta (I’m Your Man).”
“Happy birthday to the finest man! You are our heart and soul and rock and roll,” she captioned the tribute, which included images of the “Riverdale” star with the couple’s three children: Michael Joseph, 22; Lola Grace, 18; and Joaquin Antonio, 16.
Consuelos, 48, returned the favor for her birthday in early October, writing, “Happy Birthday to my Fave..I’m really glad you were born.. Because let’s face it, if you weren’t , I would’ve been married 3 or 4 times by now.”
