Kelly Ripa's daughter Lola has had quite the week, having released her second single, Divine Timing, on Friday. 

The 22-year-old is notoriously private, with her mom often revealing that she isn't usually allowed to share photos of her only daughter on social media. 

However, Lola is stepping into the spotlight more and more as she carves out a career of her own in the music industry, and even gave some interviews ahead of the release of her new song.

During a chat with People, Lola opened up about how supportive her family had been during her music journey to date, in particular her two brothers, Michael, 26, and Joaquin, 20. 

She told the publication: "My brothers are so supportive. I love when they compliment my music, because my brothers and I don't really talk about music a lot, so when I know that they like something, I'm like, 'Yes! I got the boys' approval, finally.' You are validating my cool!"

Kelly and her husband, Mark Consuelos, meanwhile, "love" their daughter's music. Lola has received a lot of supportive comments from other famous faces after releasing her song too.

Lola admitted that releasing her second single was nerve-wracking, but nowhere near as much as when she released her first song, Paranoia Silverlining, last year.

Throughout her music journey, the New York University graduate has been cheered on by her doting parents. 

Lola has a close bond with her parents, and moved back home with them at the start of the year. The property is close to where Kelly and Mark work at Live, and resembles a grand hotel, complete with a foyer and a lift to take the family up to the rooftop garden.

Despite growing up in beautiful homes, Kelly and Mark's children are incredibly humble and have been raised with strong work ethics. 

Touching on the way their children are during a chat with Daily Mail, the doting mother said of her children's upbringing: "We want to raise productive people who are thoughtful and selfless." The star added: "I wanted to raise good, caring, generous, thoughtful people who are professional, who are polite, who don't expect the world handed to them."
