According to the Detroit Free Press’ Slone Terranella, “U-M wrestling announced a new addition to its team, Kelly Ripa‘s son…Joaquin Consuelos“.
“SIGNED | Welcome to the family, Joaquin Consuelos!” Michigan Wrestling tweeted.
Ripa proudly posted a picture of her son rocking the maize and blue, saying: “Sunday vibes. 💙💛”:
The student-athlete wrestler is Ann Arbor, Michigan bound. Many people are excited for Joaquin, quoting Michigan’s signature catch phrase:

We not only bring you what’s happening in the world of sports in terms of trades and breaking news, but we also bring you the news that goes on behind the scenes. The stuff you don’t see during the 48 minutes of an NBA game or the 60 minutes of an NFL game. We let you know what’s going on in the lives of your favorite athletes. From big life moments like becoming a mother or a father to highlighting personal videos of them raising their little ones, At The Buzzer is the place you go when you want to relate to the athlete you root for on a daily basis. If you're interested in how Russell Wilson juggles being one of the best quarterbacks in the league while also being a doting husband and father-of-three, we got you covered. Interested in seeing a video of Iman Shupert's three-month-old baby speaking her first words, we have that here at ATB. Or would you rather watch Tiger Woods' son growing up and following in his father's footsteps, don't worry, we can show you that too. At The Buzzer is so much more than sports. It's relatable, reliable, and ready to show you a side of sports you didn't know existed. Our goal at ATB is to bring you relatable, entertaining news that will leave you feeling closer and more informed about the people you are looking up to and rooting for. Sports are more than just a group of organizations that entertain you, it's about the people who make up those organizations and the stories of how they became the people they are today. So take a minute and read one of our articles, we promise you won't regret it.
