Kelly Ripa breaks down in tears on live TV after revealing she’s not speaking to two of her kids

KELLY Ripa broke down in tears as she opened up on her family struggles during the coronavirus lockdown.

The TV host, 49, revealed she isn't speaking to two of her children while isolating together on Wednesday's episode of Live with Kelly and Ryan.

Kelly - who is currently on lockdown with husband Mark Consuelos and their three kids in New York - held back tears as she told co-host Ryan Seacreast, 45, that her children were refusing to hug her.

She said: “I’m not going to lie, okay? I’m going to let you in on a little secret: I’m currently not speaking to two of my three kids. I’m not talking to two of them.

“Just because, we’re all in the same boat together, right?”

Ripa is a mother to daughter Lola, 18, and sons Michael, 22, and Joaquin, 17.

The host added: “I haven’t gotten to hug my parents. I want to hug my parents. I miss hugging my parents.

“And my kids, like, won’t hug me. And I’m like, ‘Guys, we’ve all been in lockdown together. We’re fine. You can give me a hug. It’s fine.'”

Kelly was forced to compose herself as she continued to discuss her current living arrangement.

“Anyway, I’m sorry. I don’t know why I’m crying. Maybe I’m just going to get my period, who knows,” she said.

“Sorry, sorry. Sometimes we forget that we’re on. Did I shout that, or did my inner monologue come out? Sorry, didn’t mean to do that.”

Kelly went on to reveal a number of important events, including attending son Michael’s graduation ceremony and her father's scheduled surgery, had been put on hold due to the ongoing pandemic.

She added: "I feel so bad for my son, Michael, who was supposed to graduate in a couple of weeks. And I really feel bad for my dad who delayed having knee surgery that he can’t obviously have now for so many myriad reasons.

"He was so looking forward to, you know, watching his grandson graduate from college.”

The TV personality previously broke down while opening up about the loss of her former co-star and friend, John Callahan, on the show last month.

The actor - who died at age 66 from a massive stroke - starred alongside Kelly on All My Children for years.
