Kelly Ripa          

Host of "LIVE with Kelly & Ryan"

Kelly Ripa is an actress and talk show host as well as a dancer and television producer. Ripa currently serves as the co-host of the syndicated morning talk show "Live! with Kelly and Ryan." The show won a 2019 Daytime Emmy for best Entertainment Talk Show Host.

Ripa has been a host on "Live!" since 2001 alongside various co-hosts including Regis Philbin, Michael Strahan and, currently, Ryan Seacrest.

Kelly Ripa began her career in acting on the ABC soap opera, "All My Children," between 1990 and 2002. She also played Faith Fairfield on the ABC sitcom, "Hope & Faith," from 2003 to 2006 and has made appearances on numerous other television shows and movies.

Best known for her television work, Kelly has also ventured into film acting as well as co-founding Milojo Productions with her husband, Mark Consuelos. The SoHo based production company began with the Emmy-nominated feature documentary "The Streak" for ESPN, which told the compelling story of a Florida high school wrestling team with an extraordinary 34-year winning streak. It premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival in 2008. In addition, Milojo had a first-look development deal with TLC and Discovery, and premiered the docu-series "Masters of Reception" in 2009. Following that, the company launched a country-wide search for female inventors and premiered "Homemade Millionaire" on TLC in fall 2010, hosted by Ripa. They also were thrilled to announce that their film "Off the Rez," with filmmaker Jonathan Hock, was accepted to the 2011 Tribeca Film Festival. That project aired on TLC later that year.

Milojo produced a pilot for Lifetime and recently produced an exciting documentary series for CMT entitled "Cheer," which premiered in September 2012 and has received critical acclaim. The company also aired several in-studio election specials on LOGO, with Wanda Sykes hosting.

Ripa and Consuelos met on the set of "All My Children" and married in 1996, a year before their characters married onscreen. The couple lives in New York with their three children, Michael, Lola and Joaquin.
