Kelly Ripa is intensely gorgeous and Mark Consuelos is almost comically handsome, so it is no surprise that their daughter is stunningly beautiful.
Lola Grace Consuelos turns 17 at the end of next week. This week, she attended prom.
Proud mother Kelly couldn’t help but share a photo of this sweet milestone. Take a look!
Lola is notoriously picky about which photos including her she’s okay with her parents sharing on social media.
It makes sense — not only are parents super embarrassing by their nature, but her parents are very, very famous.
Honestly, anyone at any age has every right to be picky about their photos, but this is especially true for a teenage girl.
Which is why it is so sweet that Lola must have given her mom the okay to share her prom pic.
It’s a genuinely great photo.
Kelly Ripa captioned the photo of her 16-year-old daughter with her dapper date:
“Prom night 2018.”
She followed those words with five star emojis.
Lola is sporting a lavender Alice + Olivia evening gown, available from Neiman Marcus.
This particular dress has delicate straps, a side slit, and also a degree of ruching.
(Ruching is when you give fabric a tastefully wrinkled look by gathering or pleating fabric)
You know, if there’s ever a school dance to which you might wear pastels, it’s prom. it’s in the spring.
Lola looks great and so does her date.
Kelly and Mark met in 1995 when they played love interests Hayley and Mateo on the soap opera, All My Children.
The following year, they eloped. This past May 1 was the couple’s 22nd wedding anniversary.
In June of 1997, the couple welcomed their oldest child, Michael Joseph Consuelos.
(He is now old enough to drink, so, congrats on feeling super old if you remember when Kelly and Mark started dating; I sure do)
Lola Grace Consuelos came into the world on June 16, 2001. As we mentioned,s he will be 17 next Saturday.
Kelly is respectful of her daughter’s boundaries and gets her approval before she shares family photos that feature her, which is definitely the right thing to do.
On February 24, 2003, Kelly and Mark welcomed their youngest, Joaquin Antonio Consuelos.
Kelly has been described as one of the most powerful people in media, and that is not inaccurate.
She left the world of soap operas shortly after Lola was born and it was not long before she became one of the most recognizable daytime talkshow hosts.
In the mean time, her husband Mark has continued acting but been less visible than his virtually omnipresent wife.
Recently, he has been starring on the hit CW series Riverdale, where he plays Veronica Lodge’s father, Hiram P. Lodge.
Entertainingly, Lola has lamented that he’s a more permissive father on the show than he is in real life.
Kelly shares that Lola envies that Veronica, a fictional high school student, drinks mimosas with breakfast, while Mark and Kelly would allow nothing of the sort for their actual children.
Folks, the CW always features rampant underage drinking. But don’t worry; there’s always a three-to-five episode story arc in which someone tries a fictional drug, becomes addicted, overdoses, and then recovers.
That’s on just about every one of their shows. Gossip Girl or The Secret Circle or Arrow.
Some parents are afraid to let their children grow up, and they become uncomfortable at major life milestones.
Good for Kelly for being so excited and happy at her daughter’s prom. It’s a big deal.
And Lola looks so amazing. We’re thrilled that she gave her mom the go-ahead to share the pic.
It’s worth noting that a lot of the family’s graduation milestones, such as Joaquin’s just last year, happen to Fall on Lola’s birthday.
June birthdays are like that sometimes.
