Kelly Ripa is the host of the Emmy-winning syndicated morning talk show “LIVE! with Kelly.” Currently in her 12th year with the show, she has taken the lead on “LIVE” as the search for a new co-host continues.

After eleven consecutive Daytime Emmy nominations for Outstanding Talk Show Host with former partner Regis Philbin, the duo recently was honored with their second Daytime Entertainment Emmy Award for Outstanding Talk Show Host for “LIVE.” Also during her tenure, the show has been nominated for ten Daytime Emmys for Outstanding Talk Show, and was presented with the award for the first time at the 2012 ceremony. In addition, Ripa has received two TV Guide Award nominations for Favorite Daytime Talk Show and multiple People’s Choice nominations for Favorite Talk Show Host.

Ripa ventured into primetime in 2003 on “Hope & Faith,” starring with Faith Ford in the half-hour sitcom, which ran for three seasons on ABC. In 2002, Ripa concluded a 12-year stint as Hayley Vaughan on ABC’s “All My Children.” She won three Soap Opera Digest Awards for her work, two for Outstanding Younger Lead Actress and one for Hottest Romance, which she shared with her real-life husband and co-star, actor Mark Consuelos. Ripa also received three Daytime Emmy nominations, two for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series and one for Outstanding Younger Actress in a Drama Series.

She had a recurring role on the hit NBC series “Ed,” appeared in the telefilm “It’s a Very Merry Muppet Christmas Movie,” and won acclaim for her turn in late night TV’s most coveted role: hosting “Saturday Night Live.” She voiced guest appearances on the popular animated series “Kim Possible” and “Duck Dodgers.” In 2007, she hosted the "50 Funniest Women Alive" special on the Oxygen network, and twice has hosted the TV Land Awards, in 2007 and 2012. Ripa also served as host of the annual ABC “Walt Disney World Christmas Day Parade” for nine years, eight of them with Philbin. They received a 2006 Daytime Emmy Award for Outstanding Special Class Special, and nominations in 2007, 2008 and 2009.

Best known for her television work, Ripa also has several feature films to her credit. She appeared in the acclaimed Miramax feature “Marvin’s Room” in 1996, and in 1999 won the Best Actress award at the New York International Independent Film and Video Festival for her work in “The Stand-In.” Most recently, she was part of the voice cast of the computer-generated animated feature “Fly Me to the Moon.”

Milojo Productions is Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos’ SoHo based production company. It began with the Emmy-nominated feature documentary “The Streak” for ESPN, which told the compelling story of a Florida high school wrestling team with an extraordinary 34-year winning streak. It premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival in 2008. In addition, Milojo had a first-look development deal with TLC and Discovery, and premiered the docu-series “Masters of Reception” in 2009. Following that, the company launched a country-wide search for female inventors and premiered “Homemade Millionaire” on TLC fall 2010, hosted by Ripa. They were also thrilled to announce that their recent film "Off the Rez," with filmmaker Jonathan Hock, was accepted to the 2011 Tribeca Film Festival. That project aired on TLC later that year. Milojo also recently produced a pilot for Lifetime and is currently producing an exciting new documentary series for CMT entitled "Cheer." They have other non-scripted projects in production and development. Milojo recently sold a scripted project to ABC entitled "Port Love" and is developing more in the scripted arena.

Ripa and Consuelos met on the set of “All My Children” and married in 1996, a year before their characters married onscreen.The couple lives in New York with their three children, Michael, Lola and Joaquin.
