American viewers will recognise Kelly Ripa from daytime talk show Live with Kelly, but many of them may be surprised to learn that the mother-of-three is actually in her forties and she has been speaking to In Touch magazine about how she maintains her youthful appearance. Forty-one year old Kelly admitted that a combination of exercise, diet, and regular Botox injections was the secret to her success.
‘I work out every day.’ The presenter said, ‘I don’t overeat. I try to drink water, but I prefer wine, and when all else fails, I get Botox injected right here, right into my forehead as much as possible!’ Celebrity dermatologist Dr Frederick Brandt provides Kelly with her injections whenever her children start to wonder if she’s mad with them because her expressions begin to form again. ‘It’s when my kids start asking me if I’m mad at them, and I say, ‘Why do you think I’m mad at you?’ They say it’s because I’m frowning. I go, ‘Oh no! I am? I’ll be right back!’
Although Kelly would probably be happy keep going back for more and more, Dr Brandt is adamant that the results should be as subtle as possible, making sure that he can ‘keep Kelly looking like Kelly.’ The TV presenter jokingly refers to Dr Brandt as her ‘real husband’ despite being married to Mark Consuelos since 1996.
