Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos are making the most of lockdown and have been enjoying spending quality time with their three children. The celebrity couple are said to be isolating at their holiday home in the Caribbean after the quarantine restrictions stopped them from returning to New York at the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic. Kelly has been presenting Live with Kelly and Ryan from the property, and it has some seriously stylish artwork! The actress has been co-presenting the show from her living room, which is filled with black-and-white fashion illustrations hanging on the walls. The room also features gingham curtains, a cream sofa and a large house plant.

The Hope and Faith actress opened up about her family's decision to stay in the Caribbean during a virtual townhall meeting with ABC employees last week. According to People, Kelly revealed that her family had planned to go out to the Caribbean, but three days after they arrived, everything shut down, so they decided to stay where they were. Kelly has still been filming with co-host Ryan Seacrest for their daytime TV show, with the pair broadcasting from their respective homes.

Mark referred to the family's long holiday in a recent post on Instagram, while congratulating oldest son Michael on his graduation from New York University's Tisch School of the Arts. The Riverdale star wrote: "Happy virtual graduation MJC. We are so proud of you. Quarantine graduation 2020 and we know it's not what we expected but we are so grateful to be all together on what I know must seem like the longest family trip ever…"

Kelly also made a subtle reference to being away from her main home after revealing that she had run out of new outfits to wear while presenting Live with Kelly and Ryan, which had resulted in her having to borrow her daughter Lola's clothes. During an episode of the daytime show, the star said: "I'm now in my daughter's clothes. It's gone there."
The family have had a lovely start to the week, as Lola celebrated her 19th birthday on Tuesday. Kelly wished her only daughter a happy birthday live on the show, and revealed that the teen had requested to sleep all day to mark the occasion. "I'm trying to produce a television show and I'm tiptoeing around like 'shh, don't wake the baby,'" she said.
