Here, all the Kelly Ripa news you need to know from the last few weeks.

  • If Live With Kelly and Ryan looked different this week, that’s because Kelly Ripa and her co-host, Ryan Seacrest, finally returned to the studio after a few weeks of filming from their homes.
  • Last week, Ripa switched up her hair during an episode of Live. Instead of donning her signature beachy waves, the co-host styled her locks in a tight ponytail.
  • Ripa had some unexpected visitors during a recent workout session: her two dogs, Lena and Chewie. In a photo she posted, she’s laughing and kneeling on her green yoga mat that's surrounded by dogs.
  • In another episode of Live, Ripa donned a festive Space Invaders sweater that paid tribute to the Japanese video game.
  • Ripa brought back her stylish glasses in a heartfelt birthday tribute for her good friend, Rachael Harris. In a pic she included, they are both donning a pair of thick, black eyeglasses.
  • Ripa’s son, Michael Consuelos, shared a new portrait on Instagram that confirms he’s looking more like his dad, Mark, by the day. The pic shows Michael looking straight into the camera as he dons an open button-up with a white t-shirt underneath.
