Kelly Ripa is going above and beyond for Joaquin Consuelos.
The morning show host is in L.A. to prepare for Live! With Kelly and Michael's Oscars 2016 episode, which airs Monday, Feb. 29. During an appearance on ABC's Jimmy Kimmel Live! Thursday, she revealed that she'll be making a quick trip back to New York City, where her family is based, to support her 13-year-old son. "He has a wrestling tournament in the middle of this weekend," Ripa, 45, said. "We're going to get on a plane so we can fly home Saturday and we can watch him wrestle and come back Sunday so that I can be at the after Oscars show."
That's roughly 2,776.3 miles each way. Let that sink in.
Host Jimmy Kimmel was a little concerned that Ripa would be spreading herself too thin with all that back and forth. "Is he wrestling John Cena?" he asked her. "Why must you go see this?"
"I don't know!" Ripa said. "Don't you think it's a good idea to be supportive?"
"I think it's a great idea to be supportive," Kimmel said, "but I'm just going to tell you, he does not appreciate it at all."
"You sound like my mom," Ripa said.
