Kelly Ripa and her husband Mark Consuelos may very well be the world’s happiest couple. The two have been married over 20 years and share three children together, but somehow, they manage to keep the flame burning. Case in point, when Consuelos guest-hosted Monday’s Live with Kelly and Ryan, the pair told a story about how just a day earlier, their 18-year-old daughter Lola walked in on them having sex — on her birthday, no less.
Consuelos playfully explained that he thought he heard a knock before it happened, a fact that Ripa vehemently denied. “It was late morning, and it was Father’s Day…” he said, with a smile on his face.
For her part, Ripa countered that she was not even in the mood being that they had a house full of her in-laws due to the holiday, and Consuelos even agreed that his wife seemed to be “going through the motions.” “Any time there’s people in the house I’m not really relaxed,” she explained. “But he was like, ‘It’s Father Day…'”
“So she opens the door and we see the door open,” Consuelos continued, to which Ripa added: “And we both say ‘No, ahh, I’m being … resuscitated!'”
“She shuts the door and you hear, ‘You just ruined my birthday! And my life! And I used to see in color and now everything is gray!'” Ripa quipped. “That’s verbatim what she said,” Consuelos added. “And now we’re having brunch, Father’s Day, and we’re sitting there with my father, and my sister, and the kids, and Lola, and she’s looking at us, she like–”
“Everybody’s eating, we’re eating, we’re like, ‘This is delicious, that’s delicious,’ and she’s like this, ‘You’re dis-gust-ing,'” Ripa recalled, mimicking Lola’s hand gesture. “She goes, ‘You guys have no chill,'” Consuelos went on, invoking his daughter’s disgust. “‘You act like you’re 20, but you’re not.'”
What an awkward time for all involved! Surely them telling the story to millions of people on live television must have greatly alleviated the incident, though.
