Lola is currently a junior at NYU studying music and is notoriously private. Her mom and dad, Mark Consuelos, previously revealed that she rarely lets them share pictures of her on social media. 

However, she made an exception at the end of 2021, when she allowed Kelly to post a lovely family photo featuring all five members of the Consuelos family.

Kelly and Mark's daughter is their middle child 

Kelly and Mark's youngest son, Joaquin, is the only one of their children to study outside of New York where they live. 

During an interview with her LIVE! co-host, Ryan Seacrest, Kelly opened up about the challenges of university, when she said: "College is where you start establishing yourself as an independent person.

"So, when you send your kid away to college, if your kid stays local… if [Lola] feels homesick, I have to say to her, 'You can't come home. You have to work it out.'"

She continued: "I treat it like long distance. I did the same thing for my son… My main concern was, 'I don't know if you should be this close to home because I don't want you using home like it's your home. I want this to be your experience.'"
