Kelly Ripa took some time out from her duties on "Live with Kelly and Ryan" to orchestrate the impossible — a family holiday snap that everyone in her actual family could live with!
With the photo, showing Ripa, hubby Mark Consuelos and their kids Michael, 20, Lola, 16, and Joaquin, 14, in front of a wall covered in graffiti, Ripta wrote, "Wishing you a LIT holiday season! With love from the Consuelos gang. (and yes, Lola approved)".
Well, maybe not 100% success, since Mark noted on his account that it was "one kid approved" and later deleted the photos he'd posted.
As People magazine reports, Ripa almost didn't send out a photo last year because Lola put her foot down.
At the time, Ripa pondered, “I took a lovely picture of all of us on Thanksgiving and I said, ‘What if we make this the final Christmas card? It’s all of us. We look like we’re dressed up. We don’t look as miserable as we clearly are. Let’s just use this photo.’ And the boys were like, ‘Okay fine.’ Mark said, ‘Okay fine.’ And Lola goes, ‘No, absolutely not. No way. No.’ So what do I do? Do I cut her out or what?”
