Kelly Ripa said that her and Mark Consuelos' oldest child moved out of their home and is experiencing financial difficulties.
"I think he loves the freedom, he hates paying his own rent, and he is chronically poor," Ripa said of her 22-year-old son, Michael Consuelos, during an appearance on ABC's "Jimmy Kimmel Live" on Tuesday. "I don't think he ever really experienced extreme poverty like now."
"Of course, when would he have?" Kimmel said in response.
Michael currently lives in Bushwick, Brooklyn and is a student at New York University. "Riverdale" fans will also recall that he appeared as a younger version of Mark's Hiram Lodge during a flashback episode from season three.
Ripa told Kimmel that every Halloween, her parents give the children — Michael, Lola Consuelos, and Joaquin Consuelos — envelopes with $20 each and "for years, my kids sort of ignored the $20." But since Michael moved out of his parents' home, he has a greater appreciation for the money.
"Now that he's living on his own, he's called like three times like, 'Halloween envelope arrive?' because he needs to take the subway to get his Halloween envelope, just so he can have electricity," the "Live With Kelly and Ryan" cohost said.
Ripa added: "He's experiencing being an adult."
