Kelly Ripa's New 'Live' Cohost Revealed!

The TV star will be joined by an A-lister one year after Michael Strahan's exit.

Kelly Ripa was just as shocked as the rest of the world when her longtime co-host Michael Strahan announced his exit from their popular morning show after several years. Now he’s on GMA full-time but don’t fret, she’s finally got a new co-host!

According to reports, the name behind the Kardashians, American Idol, and many more of our favorite programs, Ryan Seacrest, will now be in New York as her new side kick.

Since Michael’s abrupt exit, Kelly’s been joined by many A-listers trying to nab the coveted spot, including Anderson Cooper and even Jerry O’Connell. But one of the busiest men in Hollywood allegedly snagged it.

It is believed Kelly will be making the announcement herself on Monday morning during her show.

On Sunday, Ripa teased the big announcement, tweeting a video of herself sipping from a Live! with Kelly mug with a question mark drawn on it, saying, “Tune in tomorrow. Trust me!”
