Kelly Ripa, 51, thought she was pregnant but was going through menopause

No pandemic babies here.

Kelly Ripa thought she and Mark Consuelos — who share sons Michael, 25, and Joaquin, 19, plus daughter, Lola, 21 — had conceived their fourth child together during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Speaking to Haute Living about her upcoming book, “Live Wire: Long-Winded Short Stories,” the daytime show host, 51, detailed, “I will definitely include that time during the pandemic that I thought my husband got me pregnant.

“I started taking pregnancy tests daily, but then Mark sort of gingerly said, ‘Could there be another reason why you’re not getting your period?’ and me saying, ‘What other reason could there possibly be?’ He really had to walk on eggshells here [by explaining to me that I was probably going through menopause].”

Ripa admitted she was relieved she didn’t have to “explain to my kids that they were about to meet their new sibling.”

However, a new sibling wouldn’t have been all that surprising as Ripa and Consuelos, also 51, consistently gush about their sex lives.

The “Live with Kelly and Ryan” co-host also revealed in her upcoming book, which is set to come out Sept. 28, that she actually passed out while getting it on with her husband of 26 years.

Ripa wrote that the incident happened in 1997, six months after the birth of her first child, while she and the “Riverdale” star were enjoying an early-morning session.

She proceeded to lose consciousness right in the middle of it due to two large cysts that were growing on her ovaries.

Consuelos, obviously worried, immediately rushed Ripa to the hospital — but not before dressing her in whatever he could get his hands on.

She later found out that he had dressed her in a 1980s-style French-cut leotard, red “f–k me” Manolo Blahnik stilettos and Consuelos’ old sweatpants.

“Here is my husband, who is, dare I say, stylish, well-dressed at all times, and yet he dressed me like a dime store prostitute in my time of need,” she noted, poking fun at the situation.

“It’s still baffling to me to this day that this is the best costume for the day that he could find for me, to the point where, when I was on the stretcher, I thought I was dreaming; I was having a nightmare,” she continued. “I didn’t realize I had come to.”
