While fans in those areas are excited, others couldn't help but express their disappointment that Kelly wasn't going to make it to their cities - especially those living in Ann Arbor, Michigan, which is where Kelly and her husband Mark Consuelos regularly frequent now that their son Joaquin studies there.

Taking to his own Stories to re-share his wife's post, Mark had the sweetest response, adding: "@kellyripa can't wait!!!! So good! So proud!!!"

According to Dey Street Books, a HarperCollins Publishers imprint, Live Wire will include a "sharp, funny, and honest collection of real-life stories from Kelly Ripa, showing the many dimensions and crackling wit of the beloved daytime talk show host".

It will also feature "a collection of personal essays on childhood, motherhood, marriage, her career and the intersection of all the above" and will be "surprising, at times savage, a little shameless and always with humour".

The publisher added: "As a professional, as a wife, as a daughter and as a mother, she brings a hard-earned wisdom and an eye for the absurdity of life to every minute of every day.

"It is her relatability in all of these roles that has earned her fans worldwide and millions of followers on social media.

"Whether recounting how she and Mark really met, the level of chauvinism she experienced on set, how Jersey Pride follows her wherever she goes, and many, many moments of utter mortification (whence she proves that you cannot, in fact, die of embarrassment) Kelly always tells it like it is. Ms. Ripa takes no prisoners.

"Live Wire shows Kelly as she really is offscreen - a very wise woman who has something to say."
