Kelly Ripa is known for making a huge deal out of everyone else’s birthday (even during quarantine). But what happens when her big day rolls around this week? Oh, and did we mention it’s an important one?

Yup. On October 2, the Live with Kelly and Ryan host will be ringing in her 50th birthday. So, how will she celebrate turning the big 5-0 amid the coronavirus pandemic? Here’s what you need to know.

While it’s clear no major party can take place due to the social distancing restrictions, that doesn’t mean Ripa can’t celebrate in an intimate gathering with her loved one. The festivities will likely take place in her New York City townhouse that she shares with her husband, Mark Consuelos, and, for the time being, her three children. The guest list will probably include a small group of her closest friends and family and hopefully her hubby, who is currently spending time in Vancouver to film his series Riverdale.

As for activities, we wouldn’t be surprised if things resembled the celebrations she’s shared on her social media in recent months, including her sister-in-law's birthday party, though without the whole beach thing. Earlier this month, she celebrated her nephew, Sergio-Giuseppe Ripa’s, 21st birthday with a sweet tea party. For the occasion, she even shared a tribute video to Sergio, featuring throwback clips and videos of the whole gang together.

Last year, Consuelos surprised his wife with a cake on an episode of Live. He also shared a heartfelt Instagram tribute accompanied by a sweet caption. “I'm really glad you were born.. Because let's face it, if you weren't, I would've been married 3 or 4 times by now," he joked. "Which would've been really expensive, not to mention the super tense parent-teacher conferences and all the awkward blended family holiday/vacations. Anyway, happy birthday sweetie."

So, while we’re not exactly positive how Kelly will commemorating her latest milestone, we have a feeling Mark has something up his sleeve.
