Kelly Ripa’s Son Turns 16
Kelly Ripa celebrated her son’s 16th birthday this past weekend. She showed some pictures of the party they threw for him and a picture from their dinner with Andy Cohen, who happens to have the same birthday. She also showed a picture of the poster her children made. It was covered with pictures of her son from the time he was born until his birthday.
Kelly Ripa said she had one more picture to show on the air but decided against it because she didn’t want to portray her children in a negative light. She said it was a picture of all of them fighting to blow out the candles at the same time.
Michael Strahan Parent’s Celebrate 56th Wedding Anniversary
Michael Strahan’s family was also celebrating this weekend. His parents just celebrated their 56th wedding anniversary but don’t ask Michael what their secrets to a successful marriage are.
“They just seem to yell at each other,” he joked when Kelly asked for the secrets to a long, happy marriage.
She could see how that might help though. She said her mother is always complaining about her dad napping on the couch but she never does anything but complains about it.
