Get all of the details about Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos' youngest son, Joaquin Antonio Consuelos.

Joaquin Antonio Consuelos: Everything We Know About Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos’ Youngest Son

Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos are about to become empty nesters. Last week, they celebrated as their baby boy Joaquin Antonio Consuelos graduated from high school. Ripa has always been an open book, sharing updates about her family via social media—and needless to say, she’s beaming with pride about her son’s next moves. Learn more about Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos’ kids, and find out what the future holds for Joaquin.

Consuelos and Ripa met in the mid-1990s when they played spouses on the soap opera All My Children. The two had natural chemistry on screen, but Ripa revealed she had her sights set on her future husband before they even met.

“I saw my husband in a photograph before I saw him [in real life]. I knew when I saw his photograph,” she said in an episode of Lunch with Bruce on Radio Andy in 2018.

“[The casting director] showed me his picture and, Bruce, I’m not this person, at that point I was not a hopeless romantic. I never thought about getting married, it never occurred to me that I would grow old with someone… When I saw him, the photograph of him, I saw my entire future with him flash before — like I saw it.”

Things moved quickly for the couple. A little over a year after they met, they eloped in Las Vegas. The following year, Ripa gave birth to their first child, son Michael Joseph. Daughter Lola followed in 2001, and Joaquin was born in 2003.

Consuelos and Ripa celebrated 25 years of marriage in May. And despite constant rumors that their marriage is on the rocks, they’ve never shown anything less than a united front. At the very least, they are equally committed to their kids and take every opportunity to boast about the kids’ achievements.

Joaquin Antonio Consuelos Is A Student And A Wrestler

Joaquin’s graduation was extra special for the Consuelos family because he overcame major obstacles to get there. In February, Ripa revealed on Live with Kelly and Ryan that her youngest son has dyslexia and dysgraphia—learning differences that make reading and writing challenging tasks.

She said Joaquin managed to finish school “through hard work, determination, [and] remediation.” She also called his difference a blessing because it helped him develop other important skills.

“Kids with dyslexia learn how to read the room, they pick up on social cues … their other skills become [stronger],” she said.

Joaquin also found other avenues in which he excelled, such as athletics. He was a star wrestler in high school, and his parents often attended his matches. But perhaps they were a little too involved in his work outside the classroom—in 2019, Mark Consuelos was forced off the mat after confronting his son’s opponent for foul play.

Joaquin is headed to the University of Michigan in the fall, where he will join the school’s wrestling team.

“Mark and I were FaceTiming the other night… Mark got very emotional, and very choked up,” said Ripa. “Because he said, ‘You know, I never thought he would be able to go to college.'”

Kelly Ripa Says ‘The Third Kid Is The Best Kid’

Michael graduated from New York University in 2020 with a film degree, and Lola is currently studying music at the same school. There’s no doubt that Ripa is proud of them, but she has a special place in her heart for Joaquin.

“I hope my other kids are not watching this, but they’re not [easy to handle,]” she said in a recent episode of Live with Kelly and Ryan. “Here’s what: [the] third kid is the best kid. They sleep, they do their homework, they pick their crap up off the floor… they just know they’ve got to give you a break.”

Ripa was just being playful, of course. But one thing she’s not joking about is her eagerness for the kids to fly the coop. On an episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live, she told the host that she sets firm boundaries for the kids now that they’re young adults. She specifically told her eldest son Michael that he was welcome to come home during “regular visiting hours―Thanksgiving, Christmas, that’s it. Your dad and I need to rediscover each other.”

We wish Joaquin well as he heads off to Michigan, but congrats are also in order for his parents. We hope they enjoy their time together as they celebrate their silver anniversary.

Report: Cardi B Pregnant With Second Baby

Is Cardi B pregnant with her second child? One outlet claimed the rapper inadvertently revealed her second pregnancy during a music awards show performance. Gossip Cop looked into the rumor. 

Cardi B, Offset Expecting Second Baby?

MediaTakeOut recently reported that rapper Cardi B and her husband Offset were allegedly expecting their second child together. The couple welcomed daughter Kulture in 2018 a few months after they tied the knot. Cardi B had been “laying low in recent months,” which the outlet claimed was so the rapper and her husband could enjoy this second pregnancy. 

The gossip blog claimed that Cardi B showed off her developing baby bump during her recent performance at the 2021 Grammy Awards. The costume Cardi B wore didn’t hide much of her figure, and the outlet was quick to point out that the rapper’s belly made her seem like she was pregnant. A “rock solid source” also confirmed the pregnancy to the outlet. 

Gossip Cop Has Our Doubts On The Matter

The brief article ended with a perfunctory congratulations offered to the allegedly expecting couple. Gossip Cop looked into the claims and we’re not so sure that congratulations are in order just yet. It’s entirely possible that if Cardi B were pregnant with her second child, she would choose to keep that information to herself and her family for as long as possible. 

After all, that’s exactly what happened during her first pregnancy, which she revealed in dramatic fashion during an appearance on Saturday Night Live. It’s also true, however, that tabloids and gossip blogs like MTO News have long cried wolf about celebrity pregnancies, among other baseless rumors. Unless the news comes directly from the mother or father-to-be directly, it’s best to dismiss rumors like these out of an overabundance of caution. 

Besides, we thought that there was a universal agreement that we all silently decided to follow that said we wouldn’t comment on the changes our bodies went through during the year-long quarantine due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Violating that trust is a huge no-no in our book, not to mention plain rude. Regardless of whether she’s pregnant or not, making comments about Cardi B’s body was way out of line, but that’s a line that this outlet has had no trouble crossing in the past. 

Gossip Cop has previously busted this outlet on a number of occasions for spreading false rumors. It once claimed that Kourtney Kardashian had “come out” as a lesbian after “leaking” photos of her new wife. The outlet purposefully misunderstood an Instagram post uploaded by the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star that was meant to be a simple birthday shout out to a close friend, not a serious admission about her sexuality and love life. 

The outlet made a similar claim about Mary J. Blige, which was equally lacking in evidence to support the rumor. Considering its past track record with reporting the truth, it’s obvious why we take this latest claim with a healthy dose of suspicion.
