Mark Consuelos and Kelly Ripa have always appeared to have one of the most adorable relationships in Hollywood, but now that Mark is working on his new show, Pitch, in LA while Kelly films her talk show in NYC, will there be trouble in paradise? Not a chance. “It’s easy,” Mark revealed while speaking to E! News at the TCAs this year. “The kids are older now, no more changing diapers, there’s no midnight feeding, so it’s easy. In the past, maybe I wouldn’t take a job so far away, but it’s good. It’s really, really good.”
The actor also noted that the effect of his move on their adorable kids — Michael, Lola, and Joaquin — has been positive as well, especially with his daughter. “[My daughter] is 15, our oldest is 19, and we’re like roommates,” he said. “We’re very much like roommates. She’s awesome. We get to spend some quality time we wouldn’t get to share otherwise, it’s really nice. She loves Los Angeles. She wants to figure out a way to live here permanently. I told her there’s UCLA, USC, and to look for that opportunity in a few years to get out here.” Here’s hoping Lola leaves the Big Apple for LA, if only so we can see plenty more cute red carpet appearances with her dad.
