She may already be the proud mom to two young adults and a teenager, but Kelly Ripa is suffering from a minor case of baby fever! While cohosting the Monday, April 15 episode of Live! With Kelly and Ryan with new dad Andy Cohen — who filled in for Ryan Seacrest — Kelly revealed that she’s recently considered having a fourth child.
“I was putting it out there for [Mark] last night,” the 48-year-old told Andy, adding that spending time with his 10-week-old son, Benjamin Allen Cohen, has made her fall in love with having young babies again. However, it doesn’t seem like her husband, Mark Consuelos, was too fond of the idea. “He was like, ‘It’s all right. Let’s be grateful for what we have.'” Kelly jokingly continued, “And then he put on Game of Thrones and fell asleep, which was the anti-aphrodisiac.” Ha!
Andy, 50, welcomed his first son Ben in February after a surrogate successfully carried the adorable tot to full term. Since arriving, Andy joked that Ben has become a total heartbreaker. “He is causing women all over my life to start re-ovulating,” the Watch What Happens Live host quipped. “Kelly came over, her body was responding in ways — I was like, ‘Whoa!’ … I do have to calm the ladies down a little bit.”
“He really does make me want to have another baby. He’s confused me into thinking [I want another],” Kelly — who shares kids Michael Consuelos, 21, Lola Conseulos, 19, and Joaquin Consuelos, 16, with her handsome hubby — admitted, to which Andy replied, “I can tell.”
Following the monumental birth of his first child, Andy couldn’t stop gushing about his adorable son. In a candid interview with People in mid-February, the SiriusXM Radio Andy host revealed that he feels “forever indebted” to the woman who selflessly carried his child.
“I worked with an incredible surrogate. She was in California. Surrogacy is illegal in so many states, including New York. I don’t understand why. It’s a voluntary process, obviously,” the Bravo guru told the outlet. “My surrogate just viewed it as, she was giving me the ultimate gift. She gave me life. So I’ll be forever indebted to her.” Andy added that he felt “very lucky” the embryo that turned into his son was successful and there were no complications at all. We can’t get over how amazing of a dad Andy is!
