After 41 years on the air, ABC announced yesterday it was cancelling two beloved soap operas — All My Children and One Life to Live. TV host Kelly Ripa got her big break on AMC, and also met husband (and father of her three children) Mark Consuelos on the set of the daytime drama. On Live With Regis and Kelly this morning, the host took a look back at her years on AMC.
Kelly and special guest host Mike Catherwood took some time to pay homage to her time on on the long-running soap opera, on which she played Hayley Vaughan Santos, with a special video montage.
Many of the clips featured Mark, who played Mateo Santos, Hayley’s love interest on the show.
In one scene, where their characters get married, Kelly is in a hospital room with the sheets hiked up to her chest.
“I’m pregnant here,” she explained to the laughter of the audience.
In another clip, she wears a long, black wig.
