Kelly Ripa doesn't often discuss her kids online, but she made an exception to celebrate a career achievement made by her daughter Lola Consuelos.
On June 21, Lola went on Instagram to preview her plans to release a single titled "Divine Timing." Less than a month later, she announced that the song became available for fans to listen to online. As a way to show how proud she was of her daughter, the Generation Gap host congratulated Lola with a celebratory post on Instagram.
"She’s here and she’s a summer jam!" Kelly wrote about Lola's track on July 15. "Congratulations @theyoungestyung you did it 🔥🎉. Streaming now on all platforms."
Kelly wasn't the only member of the family to mark Lola's major milestone on social media. The same day the Live co-host shared notice of the song, her husband (and Lola's dad) Mark Consuelos posted a video montage honoring the moment.
"Lola dropped another smooth summer vibe," he captioned the short snippet on Instagram. "Available on all platforms. Link in bio."
When fans noticed that Kelly made a public declaration about Lola's music online, they immediately were in disbelief over how much they enjoyed hearing it.
"That’s Lola singing? [Oh my god] what a voice! Digging this so much 🙌," one person wrote in Kelly's Instagram comments section. "If that isn't the smoothest groove!!!! Love it!" another exclaimed. "This is amazing. Just got it from Apple Music," a different follower added.
While Kelly is being upfront about Lola's latest musical venture, it's not the first time she's released a single over the years. In August 2022, Lola debuted her foray into the art with her song "Paranoia Silverlining (feat. Jo Jo)." At the time, she told People how her parents reacted to hearing her singing voice for the first time.
"They loved it," the aspiring artist said to the outlet. "My parents are the last people to sugarcoat anything when it comes to my singing. They are going to tell me if it sounds bad! So when I saw they had a good reaction and liked it, I felt reassured."
Guess we'll need to add this to our summer playlists as soon as possible!
