Kelly Ripa's Valentine? Her Entire Family!

They’ll be no quiet date night this Valentine’s Day for Kelly Ripa and husband Mark Consuelos!

During a Friday appearance on the Rachael Ray Show, the co-host of Live with Regis and Kelly reveals that the special day has always been a family affair with the children. This year, however, Kelly is taking it one step further.

“We are doing what we have never done before as a couple y’all! We are going out to dinner with all three of my children and my parents!” she shares, before adding that Michael Joseph, 12, Lola Grace, 8 ½, and Joaquin Antonio, 7 this month, are proof of their parents’ love for each other.

“They are the clearest expression of Valentine’s Day gone by,” Kelly says.

With Michael approaching adolescence, Kelly jokes that the mother-son bond has never been stronger. “It’s so funny because he’s got a little mustache right here, and I’m about to be 40 this year, so I’ve also got that!” she laughs.

“We’re staring at each other and I’m like, ‘It’s so weird how we’re going to be shaving together! Isn’t this exciting!'”

And while Kelly may have taken over that task, she confesses she wasn’t the one who handled the birds and the bees discussion. “It was awful! They say you have to tell them, but I just get so sweaty,” she admits.

Fortunately, Mark was quick to step up to the plate — although Kelly points out she has little faith in her husband’s explanation. “Well, Mark says … ‘I told Michael everything he needs to know,'” she explains.

“And I’m like, ‘What was that exactly?’ Because I don’t really necessarily know that Mark understands!”

Poor Michael, having to have “the talk” with Kelly. He was probably more comfortable having Mark explain things. Kind of hard to believe Michael will be a teenager this year – yikes!

Kelly would find it funny she and her teenage son will both have moustaches, lol! 😛

LOL, I LOVE her!! I have a 12 year-old son (who turns 13 in a few months) and I am turning 40 this week, so I totally get where she’s coming from =)

I love Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos. I have been fans of theirs since the soap days, and they seem like such a wonderful couple. Kelly has been a role model to me for years. She can act, host, be funny, but most importantly she is a good devoted mother and wife. She really is a great example of everything that embodies being a strong woman.
