Kelly Ripa Says Kids Are Helpful Around The House
When it comes to housework, Kelly Ripa isn’t afraid to get her hands dirty in an effort to get her laundry clean. Proudly proclaiming herself the "laundress" of the house, the 37-year-old actress and talk show host tells OK! that she finds the process "therapeutic."
"I’m very good at keeping my whites white and my darks dark and I enjoy it."
While mom is busy fluffing and folding, Michael Joseph, 11, Lola Grace, 7 and Joaquin Antonio, 5 — Kelly’s children with husband Mark Consuelos — pitch in around the house, as well. Michael is on "dish detail" and takes out the garbage, Kelly says, while all three kids are responsible for making their beds each day. The help hasn’t gone unnoticed by Kelly, who raves "they’re really good, I have to say."
