This weekend, TV host Ripa and actor Consuelos helped Lola, 18, move in and get settled at the Clive Davis Institute of Recorded Music at New York University (according to Lola’s Instagram bio).
Ripa captioned a photo of herself kissing her daughter farewell, “The nest is getting roomy.” Consuelos also shared the same photo on his Instagram feed, captioning it, “2 down… 1 to go,” with a series of heart emojis.
This isn’t the first college send-off for Ripa and Consuelos. The pair’s eldest son, Michael, 22, also studied at NYU. Michael looks so much like his father, he was cast in the role of the younger version of Mark’s character, Hiram Lodge, on the TV show Riverdale.
Ripa and Consuelos also share another son, 16-year-old Joaquin.
Lola’s departure for college seems to be hitting her mom particularly hard. On Aug. 22, Ripa posted a sweet throwback shot of Lola’s baptism:
She captioned it, “#tbt 2001 from your Christening to college. In the blink of an eye. I’m not crying. You’re crying. (actually Daddy’s sobbing).”
Earlier this August, Ripa also posted a fond shot of Lola, captioned, “Middle child vibes #favoritedaughter.”
To which Lola responded in the comments, “And you are my favorite mom.” Tissues, please.
