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:
- “So exciting!! Go Blue! 💙💛💙💛,” Lizzie Tisch commented on Ripa’s post.
- “Congrats, GO BLUE! Chelsea’s alma mater 💙💛 We love Ann Arbor!” Dr. Daryl Gioffre commented.

There were lots of maize and blue love and support!
Of course, Michigan State and Ohio State are rivals of the Wolverines. There were some Spartan fans and someone who lives in the Buckeye state in the comments, as well.
- “Boooo. Go green! 😉,” @sj_fowler on Ripa’s post.
- “Go blue!!!! From someone who unfortunately lives in the scarlet and grey state,” @mandydavis1977 said.
