This star had a hilarious response to some unwarranted — and odd — requests from fans. Kelly Ripa responded to a fan who said she should divorce her Mark Consuelos for Jake Gyllenhaal. The Live! With Kelly & Ryan cohost and Spider-Man: Far From Home star’s reaction to the fan’s request has us laughing.
Ripa and Consuelos met on the set of the popular soap opera All My Children and eloped in May 1996. Since then, the couple has had three children: Michael Joseph, 22, daughter Lola, 18, and Joaquin, 16 — who Ripa recently revealed was her favorite. Ripa has been known to respond to fans and trolls alike on her social media, so it’s no surprise she had some words for this concerned viewer. This time, however, Oscar nominee Gyllenhaal got in on the action.
On a recent episode of Live! With Kelly & Ryan, Ripa began by reading the letter the fan sent, “‘Dear Kelly Ripa, you should divorce your husband Mark Consuelos and marry Jake Gyllenhaal.'” Ripa then interjected with her own commentary. “Now, I am not discounting this letter at all, I just want to put that out there,” she said. “Bold” Gyllenhaal replied through giggles. Ripa continued to read the earnest letter, “‘He was on The Tonight show Starring Jimmy Fallon on the 19th [in February], It may be better for your children. So, what do you say?”
With that, the Velvet Buzzsaw star shared, “It feels like a lot of pressure for a moment like this, but I’m open to it.” Ripa hilariously interjected, saying, “I ran it by Mark, he thinks you’re a hell of a guy. And he thinks you’d make a great step-father to our kids.” Gyllenhaal replied with a resounding, sarcastic, “Great!” Looks like the author of that letter won’t be getting their dream celebrity couple anytime soon.
