The Live With Kelly and Ryan co-host revealed her whereabouts during a virtual town hall for Disney employees, called a “Speakeasy” series, on Thursday. In the chat, moderated by WABC-TV’s Sandy Kenyon, she revealed that she and husband Mark Consuelos traveled there in March with their three kids, and that the coronavirus pandemic led to them sheltering in place.
“We had planned a trip for our family,” Ripa said, without specifying which island they visited, according to People magazine. “We arrive and three days later, the entire world changed, really. I mean, everything shut down; the government shut down; our country shut down.”
She added, “I hate to use the word ‘stuck,’ but we were. We decided to stay where we were.”
A source close to Ripa told People, “The family was on a trip in the Caribbean when told to shelter in place and decided to stay put.”
