She deserves it! Fans turned on Live With Kelly and Ryan this morning and wondered one thing: Where is Kelly Ripa today? Turns out, the blonde-haired beauty is on vacation, and usually is when she's not on the hit morning talk show.
When Kelly isn't being the perfect TV star that she is, her new co-host Ryan Seacrest bravely hosts the show without Kelly by his side. In the past, he's been joined by temporary co-hosts, So You Think You Can Dance star Cat Deeley, Dancing With the Stars judge Carrie Ann Inaba, and Channing Tatum's wife, Jenna Dewan, to name a few.
It seems Kelly tends to take her vacation time during the summer months mostly. She was previously away in June and took another trip in late July into early August. Soaking up the sun much, Kelly? If Kelly isn't missing from Live With Kelly and Ryan for leisure time with her husband and kids, she's likely home sick or has another family obligation like a school outing for example.
When Kelly missed work for the first time with Ryan as her new co-host, he took to social media to joke about her absence. "First day with @KellyRipa on vaca and I already forgot to protect my cup from the confetti. We miss u already," the American Idol star captioned a photo of his coffee mug filled with confetti. Too funny!
However, it's clear when Kelly isn't on the ABC set that she misses Ryan a ton. During one of her recent trips, she shared a poolside photo of a blow-up swan float with a funny caption. "This fool's been giving me side eye for hours. Help @ryanseacrest bring cake!!!!" she wrote. Come back soon, Kelly — we miss your bubbly attitude every morning!
