Kelly Ripa is a doting mom to three grown-up children - and she's incredibly proud of them all.

The Live star's two oldest children, Michael, 25, and Lola, 21, both live in New York City, but her youngest, Joaquin, 19, is far further away - having moved to Michigan to study in 2021.

What's more, Kelly and her husband Mark Consuelos have made sure to support their son during his time away from home, by frequently staying in Ann Arbor, in a rental home close to his college dorms.

One follower asked whether Michael had dropped out of school, to which she replied: "Michael goes to college and is a senior and works full time.
