Michael isn’t the only one to send a congratulatory message to the now-certified author. Ripa’s husband, Mark Consuelos, celebrated the release of his wife’s book on his personal Instagram page. 

Alongside a picture of the book cover, he wrote a touching message that read, “You can add ‘Newly Minted Author’ to the her résumé. I’m in AWE of you @kellyripa. Could not be any more proud of you sexy. This book hits the shelves TODAY!! Run don’t walk and get this for yourself or that special person in your life..”

Even her fellow Live co-host, Ryan Seacrest, took a moment to celebrate her official book release. In a photo slideshow on IG, both talk show hosts appear to be faux shocked as they’re reading a section of Live Wire. “You won't believe what @kellyripa wrote…,” he wrote in the caption. “Her book ‘Live Wire’ hits stands TODAY and is filled with real-life stories that are humorous, relatable, and incredibly witty.”

Congratulations, Kelly, on all your success!
