Kelly Ripa to announce her new 'Live!' co-host on Monday

Kelly Ripa teased the announcement of her new Live! permanent co-host on Monday, with a slightly cryptic Twitter post over the weekend.

In the short video shared with her followers on Sunday, Ripa sips from a Live with Kelly mug with a question mark on it.

"Tune in tomorrow. Trust me," she says. "We're going to need a bigger mug," Ripa captioned the video, adding several clues in the form of hashtags: "#TuneInToLive #BigAnnouncement #LiveKellyCohost." We're going to need a bigger mug. — Kelly Ripa (@KellyRipa)

The 46-year-old talk show host has been anchoring Live! solo since the shocking early departure of Michael Strahan in May 2016. Since then, there have been a slew of guest co-hosts, including Michael Buble, Jerry O'Connell and even Christian Slater. In the meantime, take a look back at fan-favorite and contest-winner Richard Curtis's turn in the co-host chair in the clip below.
