Kelly Ripa is a cool mom.
The talk show host, 48, appeared on the premiere episode of Jerry O’Connell’s “Jerry O Show” on Monday to discuss life as a parent of teenagers, and Ripa revealed that daughter Lola Consuelos, 18, secretly tweaked her prom dress to make it more revealing.
“That’s the prom dress that we had made and then she had altered behind our back,” Ripa told O’Connell, showing an emerald green floor-length gown with a deep V-cut. “So that’s why the girls are fully on display.”
“Everybody came down the stairs together and I just mean Lola,” she quipped.
Secretive dress alterations aside, Ripa was clearly involved in every aspect of her middle child’s big night. Lola worked with her mom’s stylist Audrey Slater to make the custom dress by New York City-based tailor Raza Wijdan, which also included a modest slit. Consuelos’ boyfriend, Tarek Fahmy, even wore a suit from Ripa’s co-host Ryan Seacrest’s clothing line.
Ripa posted a picture posing with her daughter in early June with a caption indicating it took “20 hours” for her daughter to approve of the photo.
It seems that Ripa may be able to keep an eye on her daughter a little bit longer; the teenager, who graduated from high school shortly after prom, will be attending the New York University Clive Davis Institute of Recorded Music this fall.
