Kelly Ripa says illness not baby-related
One day after having to walk off the Bahamas set of Live with Regis & Kelly with a mysterious stomach ailment, Kelly Ripa was back on camera this morning — and eager to silence any rumors about the cause of her illness. In response to joking by her co-host Regis Philbin that "she’s pregnant again," Kelly replied,
No, no…That would be nice, though. Wouldn’t that be nice?
Still, Regis noted, with Kelly scheduled to skip Thursday’s taping — and with Regis’ wife Joy filling in — the rumors are bound to swirl again. Joked Regis,
Tomorrow, Joy will be here, and you won’t, and they’ll say, ‘My God, she really is pregnant!’
Kelly has three children with her husband of 11 years, actor Mark Consuelos: Michael Joseph, 10 1/2, Lola Grace, 6 1/2 and Joaquin Antonio, 4 1/2.
