Kelly Ripa & Mark Consuelos: Sunday Funday

Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos were spotted with their three kids – Michael, 16, Lola, 12, and Joaquin, 10 – in New York City on Sunday (September 29). After lunching at Cafe Gitane, the group did some shopping on the beautiful NYC afternoon.

“I’m like a regular full-time mom; I just happen to work for a couple of hours while the kids are at school. I take them to all their activities,” the talk show host recently shared.

“Mark is usually the later one home from work, around 6:00 P.M. We definitely share in the household chores,” Kelly added. “I do have a cleaning lady who comes and helps me, because I can’t be married to somebody who’s as OCD-neat-freakish and germaphobic as Mark Conseulos and do it myself. I need a person in there with a hazmat suit to spray bleach all over the place.”

In her classic humorous style, Kelly also shared a funny story on motherhood.

“Not too long ago I came home late, I hadn’t eaten dinner, and a babysitter was there. She said, ‘They were great; they were absolute angels,’ and she left. Then a riot broke out — they got out of bed; Lola and Joaquin were hitting each other and screaming. I was separating them, and then Lola wanted me to read her a story. I said, ‘No, I have to eat dinner, and you need to go to bed.’ Then Joaquin said, ‘If you read her a story, you have to read me a story!’ And Michael’s like, ‘Mom, can I order a movie on iTunes?’ I just broke down crying in front of them, which I had never done before. They reacted in a way that was so peculiar. The two boys retreated to their rooms and shut their doors. My daughter was like, ‘Oh, Mom, do you want me to rub your head?’ I was like, ‘No, I want you to go to bed. I need to eat dinner.’ That’s the only time I’ve really lost it in front of them.”

    I love this family, even though they are in the public eye they seem the most normal down to earth family. Michael is just like Mark, Lola is the spit of Kelly and Joaquin is a nice combo of them both, all gorgeous children.

    They are growing up fast! Lola is like a little woman now! Michael is a mini Mark and Joaquin is a nice mix of the two (but looks a lot like Kelly)! Beautiful Family!
