Kelly Ripa is struggling in isolation with her family.
During Wednesday’s episode of “Live With Kelly and Ryan,” the 49-year-old co-host started crying as she talked about how two of her children aren’t speaking to her amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
“I’m not going to lie, okay? I’m going to let you in on a little secret: I’m currently not speaking to two of my three kids. I’m not talking to two of them,” Ripa, filming from home, told co-host Ryan Seacrest. “Just because, we’re all in the same boat together, right?”
Ripa shares daughter Lola, 18, and sons Michael, 22, and Joaquin, 17, with her husband Mark Consuelos, also 49.
She continued to tear up as she said her children “won’t hug” her.
“I haven’t gotten to hug my parents. I want to hug my parents. I miss hugging my parents,” she shared. “And my kids, like, won’t hug me. And I’m like, ‘Guys, we’ve all been in lockdown together. We’re fine. You can give me a hug. It’s fine.’”
Ripa apologized for crying and joked, “Maybe I’m just going to get my period, who knows?”
“Sorry, sorry. Sometimes we forget that we’re on,” she said. “Did I shout that, or did my inner monologue come out? Sorry, didn’t mean to do that.”
Ripa didn’t acknowledge her tears on Thursday’s episode but did joke she’s been “eating like a college kid” with her food “coming right out of the cereal box.”
