American TV presenter Kelly Ripa was pictured in a jovial mood after taking her son to the dentist for a check-up; the mother-of-three was photographed outside an orthodontic clinic in New York with her youngest child, looking relaxed and happy.
The 44-year-old chat show host shared a laugh with 11-year-old Joaquin as the pair left the clinic in casual winter outfits, huddling together to keep out the cold.
Later on in the day, Kelly shared a picture of the trip on her Instagram account, showing her son in the dentist’s chair. The photograph showed Joaquin smiling while wearing red protective glasses and a cheek retractor so that the dentist could see his teeth clearly; the youngster did not seem to be anxious about the dental check-up as he gave the thumbs up to the camera. The dentist is also seen in the corner of the picture wearing a surgical mask for the treatment. Although it is unclear exactly what treatment was taking place, Kelly also added the caption ‘It’s the mysterious Dr. Sherman and equally intriguing Joaquin attempting to have a conversation about braces’ suggesting that her son is about to start orthodontic work
