Hinting at what’s to come in her book, Ripa said, “I will definitely include the time during the pandemic that I thought my husband made me pregnant,” continuing, “I started taking pregnancy tests daily, but then Mark awkwardly said, ‘Could there be some other reason you’re not getting your period?’ And I was saying, ‘What else could be the reason?’ he really had to walk on eggshells here [by explaining to me that I was probably going through menopause],
The couple has three children together: 25-year-old Michael, 21-year-old Lola, and 19-year-old Joaquin. On realizing she wasn’t pregnant with the fourth, Ripa gleefully shared “I was really grateful that I didn’t have to explain to my kids that they were about to meet their new brother.”

Ripa’s book, to be released on September 27, openly details her and Consuelos’ sex lives, which they have been known to shamelessly share, as well as their experiences as an empty-nestor, growing up.

The talk show host shared her hopes for the book’s final conclusion, saying, “I think in life, as a woman, you have to advocate for yourself. I’ve been called ambitious, but not in a good way.” I’ve been told precisely, not in a good way either. But these are really really cool things, and I think the fear of not being liked is about our best when it comes to entering into business arrangements, or contract negotiations. Depends on intuition, and more often than not, I ask for less than I know. A person like me has a fair market value. ‘Know your worth’, as [Morning Joe co-host] Mika Brzezinski always says Know your worth and keep your value. Don’t offer yourself at a discount.”
