It’s that time of year again: parents are saying goodbye to their college-bound kids.
The parents of three shared a sweet photo on Instagram Sunday to commemorate the moment.
“The nest is getting roomy…💕,” Ripa captioned a heartwarming photo of herself giving her daughter, 18, a hug and kiss during the drop-off.
Consuelos shared the same photo of his two ladies, writing, “2 down… 1 to go…❤️❤️❤️❤️.”
Consuelos and Ripa have already gone through the college send-off once before with their oldest son, Michael Joseph, 22. Lola follows in her older brother’s footsteps, as he also studies at NYU.
The couple also shares 16-year-old son Joaquin Antonio.
A few days prior to dropping Lola off at her new home, the Live with Kelly and Ryan host, 48, shared an emotional throwback of her daughter.
In the sweet Instagram post, a young Ripa with her husband, 48, cradle their then-newborn daughter at her christening in 2001 — both parents looking down lovingly at their baby girl.
She included the fitting Throwback Thursday hashtag, writing, “#tbt 2001 from your Christening to college. In the blink of an eye. I’m not crying. You’re crying 😢 (actually Daddy’s sobbing) 😭”
The Riverdale star confirmed Ripa’s caption by commenting a crying face emoji on the post, accompanied by hearts.
Ripa later revealed that Lola made alterations to her emerald prom dress designed by New York-based tailor Raza Wijdan “behind [their] backs,” adding, “That’s why the girls are fully on display.”
