Kelly's first book is coming in 2022

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."
