Happy birthday to Michael Consuelos, the oldest child of Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos, who turned 19 today!
In April, Mark told E! News that Michael’s next steps after leaving home are at the forefront of their minds. “Right now, we’re concentrating on our oldest going to college and he has to pick a school in a couple of weeks. So right now we’re more focused on where our son’s going to go to college. That’s freaking us out more than being married 20 years,” he said.
In November, Live! with Kelly host Ripa, who was born in Stratford and attended Camden County Community College, told ABC News that the years have flown by so fast “I can’t believe it.” She went on to say of son Michael, “Every time he’s leaves the house, I stare at Mark and say, ‘I cannot believe we gave birth to that kid.’ He’s so much bigger than us. He’s so much taller than us. He’s so much cooler than us, without even knowing he’s cool. I adore all three of them, but there’s something about that firstborn child going off. It feels crazy.”
Here’s some more photos of Michael and the Ripa/Consuelos family over the years.
