"We took our youngest son to college, we dropped him off. It was hard. It was really hard," she recalled during a broadcast of Kelly and Ryan. "We dropped him off at school and we gave him a hug — it was actually brutally painful. And I said, 'I did not realize that 18 years would go so fast.'"

Ripa revealed she also nearly had serious concerns for her and Consuelos' 26-year marriage after the kids left, explaining in an interview, "There were moments when I was like, 'We're going to be that couple: Our third child goes to college and we get divorced because this is it.'"

Fortunately, she had a moment of realization when they took a trip to beach as they relaxingly snacked on the sand. "These other parents were running around us with small kids. I realized I had never noticed the sunset because I was making sure our kids didn't run into the water when I wasn't looking," the Ed alum recalled. "So I think for us, it was 'Oh, this next phase of our lives, this is kind of great.'"
