Kelly Ripa turned 50 on Friday and received an amazing video message from her three children, but was wracked with guilt after watching it. 

The Live with Kelly and Ryan host viewed the heartfelt tribute from Michael, 23, Lola, 19, and Joaquin, 17, during the show, and then revealed she'd yelled at them for coming home to film it. 

The siblings almost brought Kelly to tears as they spoke about the things they love doing with her the most.

They also made her laugh out loud when their video turned into a mini family feud.

But after viewing it Kelly turned to her co-host, Ryan Seacrest, and admitted: "It’s all coming into focus. I literally walked into the house the other day and I was like 'what are you all doing here?' I was so mean to them. 

"I was like 'what are these kids doing back in this house bringing COVID into my house?' Now I feel bad and I’m sorry everybody."

She also got to speak to her husband, Mark Consuelos, live on air as the couple had to spend her birthday apart. 

In fact, they are spending the next few months in a long-distance relationship while Mark films his show, Riverdale, in Vancouver, and Kelly holds down the fort in New York.
