Regis & Kelly host Kelly Ripa and husband Mark Consuelos recently celebrated their 14th wedding anniversary, in one of the longest standing relationships in Hollywood. The couple have three children together, and they now face the challenge that all parents eventually face, their oldest son Michael has entered the teenage years. Ripa opened up to People about her teenage son, saying,
I read all of these books on teenagers, and they tell you all these things that are going to happen, and it all happened. They become surly. They lock themselves in their room. Everything [the parents] do is embarrassing. I keep telling him, ‘As far as parents go, we’re the bomb! The coolest parents ever!’”
Though Michael just recently turned 13, Consuelos revealed that his teenage behaviour began earlier, “I feel like he’s been a teenager for the past year already.”
The couple, who met on the set of the soap All My Children 15-years-ago, are also parents to 9-year-old Lola, and 7-year-old Joaquin.
