Mark Consuelos Juggles Parenting and Career

Celebrity parents Mark Consuelos and Kelly Ripa are two busy people — not only are they parents to Michael Joseph, 11, Lola Grace, 7, and Joaquin Antonio, 5 ½, but they act, host and own a production company. However, Mark admits that "it’s not that bad" when it comes to juggling it all. Kelly "has a morning job and she’s done by, like, 10:30-11 o’clock," and "when I do work it’s … in fits and starts. I go away for a few weeks at a time, and then I’m done." Just because the couple seem to juggle everything with ease, that doesn’t mean that they don’t turn down certain projects because it would be too much — in fact, it’s just the opposite! Mark shares that "we’ve both made a few sacrifices in not taking work when it seems the schedule would be a little too intense." Even though the couple love being parents, don’t expect to see another little Consuelos added to the bunch, Mark says.

"No, three is a great number."

Mark and Kelly, who met when both were appearing on the daytime serial All My Children, were married May 1, 1996.

Michael looks just like mark, while lola and joaquin look like kelly. I always thought they would have a 4th, but it’s such a big age difference with the kids now and they both say they are done with 3, so I think that’s it for them.

"We weren't trying to have kids. We left it up to fate. I knew there was a possibility, but I was really excited. Even if you are trying, just to see a positive result is shocking!"
