Talk-show host Kelly Ripa gave birth Saturday morning to a baby daughter, she told Regis Philbin over the phone Monday morning during the live broadcast of Live With Regis and Kelly, according to Entertainment Tonight. Ripa named the child Lola Grace Consuelos, the last name taken from her soap-star husband Mark Consuelos, with whom she already has a 3-year-old son. Ripa told Philbin that she will likely take a longer-than-expected maternity leave, telling him she'd probably require more than a month off.
