Live Cohost Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos Welcome a New Sidekick, Their Third Child, Joaquin
Those pesky hospital regulations did little to dampen Ripa and husband Mark Consuelos's joy as the couple welcomed son Joaquin into their lives. Born by cesarean section in a New York City hospital, the 8-lb. 5-oz. boy "looks cute as can be," says Gelman. "Kelly is very happy. There were no problems in the birth, and she feels good to have it over with. And Mark is thrilled beyond belief." (Consuelos, who nearly fainted during one of Ripa's deliveries, "almost lost it" this time when he heard the word "scissors" and had to sit down, reported his wife.) As for Philbin's reaction, "I hate to say this," joked Ripa's cohost after seeing Joaquin's photo, "but the kid does look like me!"
Consuelos, 31, and Ripa, 32, met on the set of All My Children and married in 1996, a year before their characters tied the knot onscreen. Ripa, who joined Live in 2001, won't return from maternity leave until May. (As during her '01 baby hiatus, Live will employ guest hosts like Philbin's wife, Joy, to keep Ripa's seat warm.) For now, she'll unwind with Consuelos, Joaquin and their other children, Michael, 5, and Lola, 20 months, in the family's New York City home. "Michael is especially looking forward to having the new baby," says Gelman. "He can have the whole big-brother thing going on."
First, though, their parents have to settle on Joaquin's middle name. "I'm open to suggestions," Ripa told Philbin, adding that their choice might have a familiar ring. "Regis is not out of the running!"
