Not only were fans excited to see Kelly Ripa return to Live with Kelly and Ryan this week, but her fellow co-host, Ryan Seacrest, gave her the biggest welcome of them all.
Today, the official Live Instagram account posted a clip from the latest episode, celebrating Ripa’s big return. When announcer Deja Vu introduced the co-hosts to the audience, the pair walked out to greet viewers. Only, Seacrest proceeded to act surprised and shocked upon seeing Ripa after her week away from the show.
At one point, Seacrest took off his glasses and said, “Kelly, is that you?” And, Ripa couldn’t help but respond to the faux freak-out with a smile.
