Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos’s children aren’t interested in their social media content.

The Live! With Kelly and Mark, co-host revealed that she’s “pretty sure” that her three children with her husband Mark have both of them blocked on social media.

The couple, who were co-stars on All My Children, has reunited on screen with Live! With Kelly and Mark after Ryan Seacrest stepped down last week. 

“I’m pretty sure they’ve blocked us,” Kelly said in an interview with E! News, continuing: 

“When you have a news feed, and it says ‘suggest more or suggest this, like this or block this channel,’ I’m certain they have blocked any channel with any mention of our names. Just like they block us on social media, they block us any way they can.”

She also joked that her children have no idea that she is working with Mark on a new show. 

The famous couple has been married for about 27 years and shares three adult children; sons Michael, 25, and Joaquin, 20, and daughter Lola, 21.

Kelly and Mark have been an open book on social media when it comes to their personal life, and it comes as no surprise that their children would rather not hear some of their intimate tales.
