Birthday fit picture or not, there’s no rejecting that Kelly looks unbelievable. But she exposed that remaining healthy and fit was partially due to Regis Philbin‘s suggestions. Fans will remember the 2 collaborated on Live with Regis and Kelly from 2005 up till 2011. He died in July 2020 at the age of 88.
“Regis was the first person to tell me that I should start going to a gym,” Kelly remembered, including that he “encouraged” her to remain active after she had her youngest kid, Joaquin Antonio Consuelos, who is now 17.
“Until Joaquin was three years old, I was really just pretty much go to work and then take care of my kid,” she described. “Once Joaquin turned three, he went into school and I had two to three hours a day where I had nothing to do. So it was Regis that encouraged me to join a gym and start working out, and said that I would get hooked on it and he was right, I did!”
