Kelly Ripa is one step closer to being an empty-nester!

Ripa took to Instagram on Saturday to share a photo of her three children with husband Mark Consuelos, 19-year-old Michael, 15-year-old Lola and 13-year-old Joaquin. Michael is heading to college – and Ripa appears to have mixed emotions about her oldest leaving the house.

“Saying goodbye to big bro, the college freshman. (Whilst conspiring to take over his bedroom.),” the mother of three wrote in the post.

In June, the family hosted a graduation party for Michael, and Ripa and Consuelos could not believe their eldest was heading to college. She posted a photo from the graduation and wrote, “We are so proud.”

“How are we old enough to have a kid that’s going to college?” Ripa asked, according to ABC.

“I don’t know,” Consuelos said.

And Ripa talked about her plans for revamping her son’s bedroom.

“I’ve got big plans for his bedroom,” she said in June. “That bedroom is going to be turned into a mega closet.”
