Gosh they are a cute family.

I really like this family – they seem so close and well grounded. Mark seems to handle Kelly’s success very well. Some husband’s, especially when he is an actor too, might be threatened by that. But he seems like such an easygoing, supportive guy….

They are one of my favorite celeb families. All their kids are so adorable and wow, Michael is gonna be a real heartbreaker. He looks just like Mark.

All three of their kids seem to be a perfect combination of both Kelly and Mark.

So, so, cute! I watched this because I’m the BIGGEST Kelly Ripa fan and he was so cute. He was nervous but handled it so well! Kelly and Mark seem like such great, hands-on, relaxed parents.

Molly, we’ll find out on Wednesday who the Top 5 are and we can vote for those for the winner. I think Michael’s a shoe-in! Who couldn’t vote for him? He was great! 🙂


Love this show so much. Kelly and Mark are great. What a nice surprise to see their son Michael today. This is what every one wish they have in their marriage to see the love and respect they have for one another. Also I will be making the grilled steak and portobello mushroom recipe. Thanks
