Both Lola and Joaquin have also made appearances on Live with Kelly. On May 25, Consuelos shared a photo of his wife in a bikini. He captioned it, “…with the sexy one…” but some fans felt that Ripa was too old to wear a bikini.
He responded to the backlash in the post’s comment section and defended his wife saying,
“…I posted this pic of the women I most admire… her commitment to exercise, healthy diet is admirable and the benefits show. Yes she’s wearing a bikini at age 47 and will no doubt wear one for many years to come.”
“If that offends you… I suggest you get over it… To all the males that had something negative to say… bring it up with me if ever I’m lucky enough to run into you…” And in a subsequent comment, he said, “I love you @kellyripa… keep killing it.”
Skeet Ulrich, Consuelos’ co-star in Riverdale, told PeopleNow Consuelos and Ripa are “… meant to be…”.
