Sound advice! Kelly Ripa may be a busy woman these days, but she still has all the time in the world for her family — especially when it comes to giving them some important beauty tips.
“What is the one thing I’ve always told you?” the All My Children alum, 48, asked daughter Lola, 17, while sitting with the whole family — including husband Mark Consuelos and sons Michael, 21, and Joaquin, 16 — for People. “Never touch your eyebrows! I have always told you never to touch your eyebrows, and you never have, and I’m so right about that,” she said, answering herself.
Lola revealed that when it comes to makeup, her mom has always said “less is more.” “Although sometimes I look back on pictures of myself from eighth grade and think, ‘Oh, I just did not get it at all,’” the teen added. The Live With Kelly and Ryan cohost isn’t the only parent giving advice. Mark, 48, also has some wisdom to pass down — especially to the couple’s sons.
“I was off at school,” Michael recalled. “And I get this call: ‘Mike. There’s a pair of jeans here. And … they’ve been washed, Michael. Washed and dried. Do you know what happened here?’ So that’s how I learned …” “You don’t wash denim,” Mark interjected and added, “But that wasn’t the only problem with that situation, Michael. What was the other problem? They were my jeans. You did that to my jeans!”
While there are style and beauty tips being tossed left and right, the famous parents know their children are smart enough to know what truly matters. “It’s a cliché, but beauty is really something that comes from the inside,” the Riverdale actor explained, “and our kids get that.”
“They’ve been to enough photo shoots and been on Instagram long enough to know how much can be faked and filtered and altered and so they aren’t fooled by what a picture tells you you should look like. That’s not real beauty,” Kelly added. The pair’s kids have remained humbled thanks to the way they’ve been raised.
“They aren’t your typical celebrity kids,” an insider once told Hollywood Life. “They are not spoiled kids. They are grounded, well-mannered, normal kids who don’t see themselves as celebrities because their parents have raised them as normal as possible.”
This is such a great family!
