How Kelly Ripa's Son One-Upped Her Many Halloween Costumes: 'He’s a Very Elaborate It'

Posted on

Kelly Ripa and Ryan Seacrest dressed in an array of intricate outfits this Halloween, but Ripa’s kids’ costumes might be even better.

On Tuesday, the Live with Kelly and Ryan stars had an impressive number of costume changes, dressing as the The Handmaid’s Tale women, Stranger Things kids, Game of Thrones characters and even each other, with Seacrest, 42, rocking a custom-designed blond wig and Ripa, 47, donning fake scruff and sideburns.

But after the show, Ripa told PEOPLE that her sons — 20-year-old Michael and 14-year-old Joaquin — also have “extraordinary” costumes. They’re both dressing as characters from It, “but they’re not going to be together.”

“My older son [Michael] is at film school, so his costumes are actually quite extraordinary because they’re a bunch of film students making them,” Ripa said, adding that he is dressing up as Pennywise. “He’s a very elaborate It the clown.”

Ripa’s younger son Joaquin will be dressing as Pennywise’s first victim. Even though both her sons are paying homage to the Stephen King book-turned-movie, Ripa told PEOPLE the story is “too scary” for her.

One lovable series the whole family can agree on is Riverdale, which stars Ripa’s husband Mark Consuelos. The couple have three kids together: their two IT-loving sons and one daughter Lola, 16, who will be missing out on Halloween this year because she has strep throat.

Even though the three siblings will be separated during the spooky holiday, they will all be on the look out for Riverdale character costumes. Ripa said their kids love the show, and seeing those costumes is “their favorite thing ever.”

“I wish you could watch Riverdale with my 16-year-old daughter,” Ripa previously told PEOPLE. “[She] is finally like, ‘I cannot believe Dad is on a show that I actually watch.’ ”
