Kelly Ripa Adds Cool Pink Hair To Her Summer: Will This End The Pregnancy Rumors?
Kelly Ripa’s new dye job has put those pregnancy rumors to rest once and for all. Last week, the host of Live! With Kelly and Michael joked that she might get pregnant while on vacation, but few days later she debuted her new pink-dyed hair to end any speculation.
Kelly Ripa is clearly not pregnant and will probably not be getting pregnant in the next month or so because she has opted to dye her hair berry pink.
Rumors were flying high claiming that Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos were expecting a child after vacationing in Canada, but her pink hair ended the chatter because expecting moms tend to stay natural.
According to experts, there is little evidence that proves hair dye is harmful during pregnancy, (because the body does not absorb much of the chemicals in hair dye). Nonetheless, it is strongly advised to wait before rushing to the beauty salon. Specialists explained:
Many experts advise mothers-to-be to wait until around the beginning of the second trimester. That’s because the first 12 weeks are a time of major development for your baby: organs are taking shape, muscles and vocal chords are forming, and nail beds and hair follicles are starting to develop.
Kelly Ripa debuted her new hair on Instagram and confessed that she loves it. The mother of three, (Michael Joseph, 18, Lola Grace, 13, and Joaquin Antonio, 12,) also explained why she went for such a drastic change – it is a vacation tradition. The 44-year-old former All My Children star told People:
“Every time I go on vacation I dye my hair a different color. It usually washes out and this will wash out. It’s part of my tradition — I like to have fun for a few weeks. I literally sat there with pink hair dye, multiple shades of pink on my hair for hours. I get very bored. I’ve had the same color for six months at least, and that’s a long time for me.”
She went on to say that next time around she will dye her hair red. Mrs. Ripa also explained why the pregnancy rumors started spreading in the first place – she is blaming them on her recent trip to Canada. Ripa and Consuelos, who have been married for 19 years, often celebrated their wedding anniversary in Montreal and every time she would come back pregnant. Ripa shared:
“If you’re going to Canada, you must, must stop by Montreal…I love Montreal, it holds a very special place in my heart, in our hearts—Mark and me—we used to go there every year for our wedding anniversary…until we kept getting pregnant there!”
