The Live With Kelly and Ryan co-host took to Instagram on Thursday to share a sweet photo of her daughter, Lola, headed off to prom.
The 16-year-old adorably flashes a smile as she looks away from the camera in the candid shot, posing in a stunning purple gown alongside her date. A matching pair of purple heels and a corsage complete Lola's look, as she accessorized with a simple necklace and wore her long locks down behind her shoulders.
"Prom night 2018 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️," Ripa captioned the snap of Lola and her date posing before heading off to the party.
"It’s so bizarre. I’m never allowed to post a photo of her, ever,” Ripa said. “Why did I have these kids if not to exploit them on social media?”

"I was like, 'You know what? She can't get mad at an eight-year-old photo. It's a Halloween throwback Thursday.' I'm in the elevator coming up here and the phone rings and it says 'Lola’... I was like, 'Maybe I shouldn't answer it, but what if it's an emergency?'" she recalled. "She's like, 'You take it down right now! My friends follow you for some reason and they will see this!' I was like, 'You know what? I will take it down. I'll take it down for you.'”
“That was the end of the discussion. I was like, ‘I will take it down from Instagram,’” Ripa told Fallon, as he showed the adorable throwback pic to his viewers.
