Live With Kelly and Mark's big premiere was a family affair.

As Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos began a brand-new chapter of the daytime talk show, the couple had the support of a familiar face.

In the opening segment of the April 17 episode, the camera panned to the audience where Mark and Kelly's daughter Lola Consuelos, 21, was sitting in the front row. And not only was she a proud supporter, but Lola also became a topic of conversation when psychic Char Margolis returned to the show as a guest. 

During her segment, Char was reminded of an episode from more than two decades ago when she correctly predicted Kelly—who also shares Michael, 25, and Joaquin, 20, with Mark—would be expecting another baby, that would be named Lola.

The episode, which saw Mark take up the position of permanent co-host, comes just days after Ryan Seacrest said goodbye to the talk show after six years. After delivering an emotional farewell April 14, the On-Air With Ryan Seacrest host was quick to wish Mark the best of luck before his first show.

Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos' Cutest Instagram Pics

"Your mornings are in good hands, and even better hair," Ryan wrote on Instagram April 17. "Good luck, @instasuelos. Wishing you a great first day."


So, how did Mark's first day go? The Riverdale star quickly praised his wife for her talents in front of the camera. 

"This is my favorite hour or television every morning, I swear," Mark said. "I'm so proud, and it's just a privilege to be here with you."

And yes, the 52-year-old quickly realized both him and his wife have come a long way since their soap opera days.

"Thank you for trusting me to be your co-host," he shared with his wife before poking fun at their All My Children characters. "Thank you America, thank you—Hayley and Mateo forever."

For the first September in at least 20 years that she didn't have a kid to see off to school, Kelly filled the void with a throwback from 2008.

"Looks like @instasuelos just found out he won't be @joaquinconsuelos roommate in the fall," Kelly teased during a trip to Ann Arbor before Joaquin started at University of Michigan.

Kelly took a few days off in March 2022 to watch the Wolverines compete in the Division 1 Wrestling Championships in Detroit.

Still a freshman, Joaquin didn't wrestle this time, but still, Kelly said on Live upon her return, "It took years off my life watching these young men."

Generational Health

The whole family finally made it to Greece and Italy in June 2021 after the pandemic had other plans in 2020.

"Last year's graduation trip for our oldest son and niece was delayed long enough to become a graduation trip for the family newborns as well," Kelly shared.

I hope you have the greatest day ever. You're a badass and an inspiration to everyone. Also, when I call you a T. Rex, I mean it as a compliment. You should know that by now."

History Repeating

In August 2020, Kelly Ripa shared an epic recreation of an old family photo from 2003 on Instagram. With youngest son Joaquin on her lap and older kids Michael and Lola perfectly in place, we'd say they nailed it despite the fact that, as Kelly noted, "objects may appear larger."

Glad Grad

In May 2020, Kelly and Mark celebrated eldest son Michael's graduation—albeit a virtual one, thanks to the coronavirus pandemic—from New York University.
