Instead of her usual entrance with Mark at the top of the hour, Kelly Ripa was joined by a guest cohost during the episode.
The Emmy winner explained that Mark stayed home because he was “really sick.”
Kelly shared details about Mark’s rocky night in the couple’s New York City home that led to his decision to take a day off from the morning talk show.
“He came down — you know, he tested negative for everything but he’s really sick and I felt so bad for him and this morning he came into the bedroom,” she explained.
“He was sleeping in Joaquin’s room last night and he came into the bedroom, and he goes, ‘Babe, I think I can power through.'”
Kelly continued, ” I said, ‘I really feel like you need to go back to bed,’” adding, “’You look and sound terrible. And also, please get out of this room.'”
The mom of three revealed that her husband had a fever but did not disclose any of his other symptoms.
