Kelly & Michael: Baby Charlie
Baby Charlie was born September 23 to Kelly Ripa’s assistant, Lauren. Kelly and Michael Strahan even had a picture of Lauren and the baby, but she didn’t even look like she had a baby. Kelly even got her way into the delivery room. There were pictures of her sneaking in. She and the grandmothers were listening at the door and she heard them say, “It’s time to push,” and she decided they should all go in. They hid behind the curtain so Lauren wouldn’t see them.
The nurses and doctors were very calming, but Kelly and the two moms were freaking out. Every time she pushed, they pushed. It was a great thing to witness though. “It was the most beautiful thing,” she said. Kelly told her they were there the whole time, but she saw them. Lauren’s always calm and she didn’t take any classes or anything. She pushed for 35 minutes, and Doug played “At Last.” Charlie’s eight pounds, two ounces and 20 1/2 inches long. “He looks like a very small grown up person,” Kelly said. She was 10 days past her due date.
Kelly & Michael: Baby Buggy Event
Michael had lunch at the Baby Buggy event “Father’s Initiative,” which tried to get fathers involved with their kids. You can donate baby stuff to help. If the mother and father are separated, the father doesn’t always have the resources the kids need to have them come over, but it’s so important that they do.
Michael had pictures of his table, which included Jerry Seinfeld and people from the organization, Hugh Jackman, Neil Patrick Harris, and others. One was a music executive who works with Jay Z, but Jerry Seinfeld’s the one who’s really into rap. Who knew Jerry Seinfeld knew about rap? And everything at the event was paid for at the Palm Restaurant.
Kelly & Michael: Conscience Event
Michael then went to host an event at the Waldorf that honored their boss. It was about uniting everyone by their conscience. They had a picture of them comparing their iPhones. Their boss gave an incredible speech about how everyone at Disney believes in the dream. Michael even got a selfie with Kissinger. It was a great event. Michael had a very good night. Kelly only witnessed the miracle of birth, “But I’m practically a doctor now,” she said.
