Kelly Ripa’s 16-year-old daughter, Lola Consuelos, may be the spitting image of her famous mom, but the two have some major disagreements when it comes to sharing family photos.
The morning show host revealed that she recently got in big trouble for sharing a candid Halloween photo of her three adorable kids to Instagram, according to E! News.
Ripa told Jimmy Fallon on “The Tonight Show” that she has been strictly banned from posting photos of her only daughter on social media because the teen gets embarrassed.Kelly Ripa/Instagram
The 47-year-old joked:
“It’s so bizarre. I’m never allowed to post a photo of her—ever … Why did I have these kids if not to exploit them on social media?”
The mother of three said that she had just dared to post a fun throwback photo, which showed her daughter wearing a less-than-flattering fake mustache, when her phone lit up with a call from her teen daughter.
She told “The Tonight Show:”
“I was like, ‘You know what? She can’t get mad at an eight-year-old photo. It’s a Halloween throwback Thursday.’ I’m in the elevator coming up here and the phone rings and it says ‘Lola.'”
She almost didn’t take the call, but her motherly instincts convinced her talk to her disgruntled daughter. Ripa said:
“I was debating [answering]. I was like, ‘Maybe I shouldn’t answer it…but what if it’s an emergency?’ She’s like, ‘You take it down right now! My friends follow you for some reason and they will see this!'”
The sympathetic mom eventually did take the photo down, but couldn’t help but show the audience.
Ripa may have gotten some heat for posting that Halloween photo of her daughter, but this week the mother of three shared an adorable montage of her family dressed up for the holiday on “Live!” over the years.
And luckily for mom, this one was “Lola approved.”
