Kelly Ripa jokingly scolded her own talk show, “Live with Kelly and Mark,” after learning that a dog named after her wasn’t permitted to enter the studio.
Ripa was chatting with audience members before Tuesday’s taping when she freaked out upon seeing someone wearing a “Kelly Ripug” T-shirt, according to a video shared by the show’s Instagram page.
Jerry Power, the owner of the popular pug, mirrored Ripa’s excitement and revealed that he brought her and her co-host, Mark Consuelos, matching “Kelly Ripug” T-shirts.
Ripa, however, insisted that he hand over the custom shirts.
Even though he wasn’t able to bring his adorable pooch to the show, Power was still able to snag a photo with the married co-hosts.
Afterwards, several fans flocked to the comments section to gush over how “sweet” Ripa and Consuelos were to Power.
