Many of us do not want to share the news of pregnancy while it is still very early in pregnancy. Ripa was no different, so she didn’t tell anyone when she became pregnant with their daughter, Lola, and was trying out for “Live With Regis.” Only she and her husband, Mark, knew.
Ripa was asked to fill in on the show last minute and had no hope that she would actually get the job so feel free to settle in and have fun with the experience. Ripa shared on “The Tonight Show” with Jimmy Fallon, “I really think the fact that I didn’t have any expectations about getting that job actually worked a lot to my advantage because I was behind it.” Wasn’t going.” (Via I! news, “I was asked at the last minute to fill in for a fill-in host, so there was no stake or any panic I might have gotten away with.”
Little did Ripa know that a psychic was about to appear on the show.
