Kelly Ripa Shares the Adorable Reason She Recently Considered Having a Fourth Child

Kelly Ripa has baby fever!

On Monday, Ripa welcomed Andy Cohen on Live with Ryan and Kelly to co-host the morning show with her in the place of Ryan Seacrest.

The pair eventually got chatting about Cohen’s new little boy Benjamin Allen, who made his arrival earlier this year, and the recent visit that Ripa’s family had with the 2-month-old.

While recalling her time with Benjamin, Ripa, 48 — who’s already mom to Michael, 21, Lola, 19, and Joaquin, 16 — admitted that seeing the little baby made her want to have a fourth child with husband Mark Consuelos.

“I was putting it out there for last night,” she admitted during Monday’s episode of her conversation with Consuelos, 48. “He was like, ‘It’s alright. Let’s be grateful for what we have.’ ”

“And then he put on Game of Thrones and fell asleep, which was the anti-aphrodisiac,” Ripa joked.

But Ripa isn’t the only woman that has gotten baby fever because of Benjamin, according to Cohen.

“He is causing women all over my life to start re-ovulating,” the Watch What Happens Live host, 50, joked. “Kelly came over, her body was responding in ways — I was like, ‘Whoa!’ … I do have to calm the ladies down a little bit.”

Added Ripa: “He really does make me want to have another baby. He’s confused me into thinking .”

“I can tell,” the new dad quipped back.

“I was in the delivery room,” Cohen told PEOPLE and Entertainment Weekly’s former Editorial Director Jess Cagle of meeting his son for the first time.

“I had been hoping that he would have a full head of hair, and he really overdelivered,” the Bravo personality teased. “That was the first thing you see, the head of hair coming out. And I was amazed.”

Fox News Host Laura Ingraham Mocks Nipsey Hussle and Shows the Wrong Rapper During Report

Fox News Host Laura Ingraham Mocks Nipsey Hussle and Shows the Wrong Rapper During Report

Fox News host Laura Ingraham has come under fire for mocking slain rapper Nipsey Hussle.

On Friday’s episode of The Ingraham Angle, Ingraham, 55, was shown laughing and grinning while speaking about Hussle’s emotional memorial service that took place just one day before.

“Yesterday in L.A., thousands lined the streets to say goodbye to rapper Nipsey Hussle,” Ingraham began.

“Now this dear artist recently released a song called ‘FDT’ ,” Ingraham continued, airing a clip from the music video.

Unbeknownst to Ingraham, “FDT” is actually a track released by Los Angeles rapper YG from his 2016 album Still Brazy. Hussle is, however, featured on the song.

The clip that she then showed while mocking the late musician was from the music video only shows YG, 29, and not Hussle.

Representatives for FOX News did not immediately respond to PEOPLE’s request for comment.

The incident has since caused an uproar on social media, with many prominent figures in music calling for Ingraham to be fired.

“So lemme tell you what’s going to happen here… @foxnes fires this disrespectful c— by tomorrow, Monday morning or you will lose millions of viewers one person at a time until it drastically effects your ratings, views etc,” The Game wrote on Instagram.

“We are NO LONGER laying quiet while you continuously disrespect our brother, culture African Americans as a whole.”

Snoop Dog, who spoke at Hussle’s memorial, commented “I’m in” on The Game’s post.

T.I. also joined the conversation saying, “This is Disgusting! You both are vile despicable, poor excuses for people. My expectations have already decreased so much for mankind in the past couple weeks that this hardly surprised me… especially from @foxnews.”

Here's Laura Ingraham mocking a murder victim, just hours after he was laid to rest, because he opposed Trump 3 years ago. (Also, the man rapping in that video is YG, a person who is not Nipsey Hussle.) For

Gypsy Rose Blanchard, Engaged in Prison After Plotting Mom's Murder, 'Just Wants to Be Normal': Friend

Gypsy Rose Blanchard, Engaged in Prison After Plotting Mom's Murder, 'Just Wants to Be Normal': Friend

As she serves a 10 year prison sentence for orchestrating the murder of her abusive mother, Gypsy Rose Blanchard, who recently became engaged, is trying to find a semblance of normalcy.

“She just wants to be normal,” family friend Fancy Macelli tells PEOPLE of the 27-year-old’s life in prison and her romantic relationship.

On Friday, Macelli revealed Blanchard was engaged to a man with whom she had a pen pal correspondence, and who initially wrote her a letter after watching the HBO documentary about her case, Mommy Dead and Dearest. The couple has known each other for a year and a half.

Macelli, citing Blanchard’s wishes, did not reveal the fiancé’s name.

Blanchard was sentenced to 10 years in prison after pleading guilty to second-degree murder in the June 2015 stabbing death of her mother, Dee Dee Blanchard.

Today, Blanchard is free of her mother’s abuse for the first time in her life and is learning how to navigate relationships.

“She’s going from one controlling environment to another, but this is one thing she has all the control over,” Macelli says. “So I think that’s really new for her of having that control of a relationship, of actually genuine care, not someone wants something from her.”

Macelli adds: “He’s just there for her.”

Macelli says the relationship started off platonic but over time turned romantic. Blanchard quietly told her friends and family she was engaged earlier this year.

“ is rather new and she’s very happy,” Macelli says.

Godejohn, who was convicted of first-degree murder and is now in prison for life without parole, killed Dee Dee to help Blanchard escape her life of abuse.

Experts have said that Blanchard was the victim of Munchausen by proxy, a rare form of abuse in which a guardian — in this case Blanchard’

World's Rarest Turtle Dies at China Zoo; Only 3 Known Yangtze Giant Softshells Remain Alive

World's Rarest Turtle Dies at China Zoo; Only 3 Known Yangtze Giant Softshells Remain Alive

One of the four last known Yangtze giant softshell turtles has died.

According to CBS News, the turtle, the last known living female of the critically endangered species, died at a zoo in Suzhou, China. She left behind three other turtles: one male at the same zoo and two wild Yangtze giant softshell turtles, sex unknown, living in Vietnam.

Shortly before her death, the female turtle, believed to be over 90 years old, underwent her fifth artificial insemination attempt. The procedure went smoothly and the turtle was in good health before and after the procedure, so it is unclear if the procedure contributed to the turtle’s death. Experts are reportedly planning a necropsy to determine the cause of death, reports CNN.

In an effort to preserve the species, the zoo collected ovarian tissue samples from the female turtle.

Yangtze giant softshell turtles are native to China. According to the BBC, the species’ numbers dwindled due to habitat loss, overfishing, and hunting.

The Wildlife Conservations Society (WCS) has referred to the Yangtze giant softshell turtle as the most critically endangered turtle species and the turtle is also listed as critically endangered by the International Union for Conservation of Nature (ICUN).
