Live with Regis and Kelly co-host, Kelly Ripa, 37, has recently partnered with Ryka Fitness Wear and attended an event to celebrate the partnership at the American Museum of Natural History in NYC. Kelly is mom to Michael, 10, Lola, 6 and Joaquin, 5, and talked to OK! about how she balances work, family, and tennis.
“My job is not very time consuming – at all. I really am scheduled to pick up the kids from school every day. It used to be very difficult because I had the sitcom and the talk show. It required a lot of patience from my children; it required them to come to me a lot. I like it much better now because I don’t think my kids should be on my schedule. I feel like I should be more on their schedule.”
Kelly gave up the celebrity couple she and her husband Mark Consuelos would love to take on in a doubles tennis match,
“Probably Regis and Joy Philbin,” she laughs. “They’re very good, and they’re very competitive. I feel like Mark and I are equally competitive, although we’re not very good at tennis. I feel like they would also have the patience to teach us as well as compete with us.”
The Kelly Ripa Collection for Ryka will be coming out in stores this October.
