Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos Proudly Admit They Have a Favorite Child (VIDEO)

Kelly Ripa and Mark Conseulos proudly plowed through a long-held parenting taboo on 'Rachael Ray' (weekdays, syndicated on ABC), when they admitted they have a favorite child. It wasn't one of those spontaneous 'gotcha' moments that can happen on talk shows; the couple clearly wanted to tell everyone, including their two other children, that their son Joaquin is their favorite.

Ripa knowingly accused the audience of secretly playing favorites with their own children, as well. "You know in the event of an emergency there's one kid you'd reach for first," she joked. Consuelos said the other children are aware of their standing in the family and suggested they were to blame. "They know it, too. It's very accepted. He's just nicer to us." If Michael and Lola weren't nice before, things might be getting pretty ugly in the Consuelos/Ripa house soon.

The couple also talked about the new E! reality show they're producing, 'Dirty Soap,' which follows the life and times of eight soap opera stars. It's a world they know well: Consuelos and Ripa met while filming 'All My Children.' "To us... what went on off camera was more interesting than the story lines," she said. The network apparently agreed, as 'All My Children' was canceled this summer after 41 years.

Catherine, rose, BC, chill the eff out it was said in a joking manner! People as oversensitive as the 3 of you are the reason the "over coddled, independence inept" 22 years olds exist. Their kids are and will be MORE than fine. They spend more time with their children than a majority of the working parents in this country and there's clearly something to be said for that. It's easy to sit on your internet high horse negatively commenting when no one can see you. The reality probably is, none of you have a job outside of being moms and feel you're better than women that work while being mothers. Be a mom and live in the REAL world, maybe then you will acquire educated experienced opinions worth listening to. Otherwise women like you bore and frankly make me embarrassed to be a women. Stop being so judgmental, lets see who's future adult that's currently being raised is more successful and able to process and deal with real life.

Nothing those two say would surprise me. Neither of them have an ounce of sense or talent. Kelly always says horrible things about her kids. Shame on both of them.

I actually use to think she was normal...guess not. That's great for your children and all their friends to know..Pretty sad for their children....

Well, he's 7 and the youngest--wait until he's a teenager and starts displaying more independence before deciding he's "nicer" than the older two.
