Kelly Ripaâ€™s announcement has soap fans all fired up. If you are an â€śAll My Children Fan,â€ť look forward to seeing Kelly Ripa again, her announcement states.
The former soap star will be back in the mix for the 40th anniversary of the show. She and her husband Mark Consuelos are slated to appear in episodes that will air on January 4th and 5th. Their return will be the first time they have appeared on the show since they left back in 2002.
Kelly Ripa is now co-host of the popular daytime talk show â€śLive With Regis & Kelly,â€ť which will offer an exclusive behind the scenes look at the taping of their brief comeback this November.
The coupleâ€”who are married in real lifeâ€”will be bringing back characters Hayley and Mateo Santos for the two anniversary episodes. Iâ€™m sure it will be special for them to return to the set, being that they met and fell in love while working there.
Kellyâ€™s career really took off when she was offered the gig on â€śLive,â€ť but it caused her to work a really hectic schedule. She would split time between filming â€śAll My Children,â€ť â€śLive With Regis & Kelly,â€ť AND she was working on a sitcom called â€śHope And Faith.â€ť On top of all of that she is a mom. Talk about a go-getter!
Now she has whittled her TV life down to just working on â€śLive,â€ť which has so far been a wild success for her.
