Why is Kelly Ripa absent from Live With Kelly And Ryan? Well, this is the question every fan of the actress and star host has in the mind. Kelly did not make an official announcement about her break from social media. Hence, fans have been taking it to Instagram to figure out what is going on and why is she inactive?
For the unversed, her co-hosting duties are being fulfilled by celebs Maria Menounos and Ali Wentworth. During the live episode on March 16, Kelly announced that she along with her husband Mark Consuelos, and their children have decided to bring home a rescued puppy. They have named the puppy Lena. According to certain online reports, the beautiful Maltese and Shih Tzu mix breed was featured on the show, Happy Pets, segment.
When Kelly Ripa was covered by other actors this week, fans speculated that she would not be coming back on the show. However, that is not the case. Kelly’s kids are on a break from their school which is why she has also taken a break from work to spend some quality time with her family. Some sources have also confirmed that Ripa annually takes time off every year at the end of March to spend time with her family.
In other news, Kelly’s husband, Mark Consuelos birthday is on March 30. Hence, the family will be spending time together as it is his 50th birthday and they will have a grand celebration.
