Can you believe Kelly Ripa has been hosting LIVE for 15 years?
The 45-year-old celebrated her "crystal" anniversary on the ABC daytime talk show Friday with current co-host Michael Strahan, who presented her with a slew of surprises, including appearances from other celebrities, her husband and their three kids.
"We're all dressed up for you," Strahan said. "We have some sweets for you. A little Champagne-"
"Booze!" Ripa said, raising her glass.
"Cheers to 15 years!" he said, as they toasted.
"I'm not going to lie, this is a little bit like attending your own funeral," Ripa said.
This marked Ripa's 3,620th appearance on the show. She debuted on LIVE in February 2001 when it was called LIVE with Regis and Kelly. Regis Philbin, the show's veteran host, left the series in 2011 after 28 years. Strahan joined the show in 2012 and the name was changed to what it is today—LIVE with Kelly and Michael.
