Some celebrity kids like to stay out of the limelight, but it looks like it’s this lady’s time to shine. 

Kelly Ripa frequently talks about her husband of more than 20 years, Mark Consuelos, but they also have three children together: Michael, 22, Joaquin, 16, and Lola, 18. Their daughter recently made an appearance with her mom when Lola and Ripa attended the CNN Heroes Gala together on December 8. But now that she’s in the spotlight, who is Lola Consuelos? Fortunately, between her mom and her social media, there’s a lot of info out there about her.

1. Who is Lola Consuelos? She stole the show in her family's Christmas card.

 

When Ripa shared her family’s holiday card on Instagram earlier this week, fans couldn’t stop looking at Lola. Of course, Ripa, Consuelos, and their sons all looked good, but it was impossible not to focus on Lola and her stunning black evening gown. 

Who says black isn’t a Christmas color?

2. She just started attending NYU. 

Lola’s first semester at New York University should be coming to an end, and while she did stay close to home, Ripa shared her concerns for Lola’s college adventures while appearing on On Air With Ryan Seacrest in September. 

“Sharing a bathroom with five roommates, it’s gonna be the main challenge,” Ripa said. “New York City kids are used to not having a lot of space so that, she’s already okay with … but the bathroom, that’s gonna be a thing.”

That doesn’t mean it was easy for Ripa to say goodbye, though, and she shared a sweet photo of herself dropping Lola off at school on Instagram to mark the occasion.

3. Lola recently took her Instagram public. 

Until October, Lola’s Instagram was private, but it seems this fall, she decided it was time to open things up. On her account, she typically shares her style, travel, and even a few snaps of her family members — what we’d expect to see from any college kid her age, regardless of whether or not they have celebrity parents. 

4. She's not a fan of her dad's Riverdale role.

On Riverdale, Consuelos plays Hiram Lodge, Veronica’s shady father — and fans of the show know that the teenagers in that town typically get away with a lot more than typical teens living in the real world do. According to Ripa, Lola has a big problem with that

“You know, so Veronica — she’s 16 also — and she drinks mimosas at breakfast. My daughter’s like, ‘Dad never lets me drink mimosas at breakfast!’ ” Ripa said back in 2017. “And I go, ‘Yeah, because he’s a real father and that’s a character on TV!’ ” 

5. She's also not a fan of her mom's Instagram activity.

In fact, Lola and Ripa got into a minor argument over a Halloween #TBT that Ripa shared of her… and Lola immediately called her, asking her to take it down before her friends saw it. 

“It’s so bizarre. I’m never allowed to post a photo of her, ever,” Ripa said during the same interview. “Why did I have these kids if not to exploit them on social media?”

To be totally fair, Ripa does have over 2.6 million followers. That’s a lot of eyes on everything she shares.

6. Lola seems to have a boyfriend.

This lady isn’t single — or at least, that’s how Instagram makes it appear! Although he’s not tagged in her photos, it seems like Lola’s dating a mystery man (and yes, he’s attractive). They attended the US Open together in September, and it seems he was her prom date, too. Aww! 

It might not be easy being a kid in the spotlight — especially when her parents are a famous celebrity couple — but so far, it seems like Lola’s handling it all like a champ.
