Happy Birthday Kelly Ripa

As Hayley Vaughan on All My Children, birthday gal Kelly Ripa was destined to suffer the kind of anonymous fame that dogs most soap stars - hugely popular amongst fans of the show, yet virtually unknown to anyone else.

As herself on Live with Regis and Kelly she broke through to the mainstream with a bubbly personality and a self-deprecating manner, both of which are great assets to a television presenter. Fans agree; the show's ratings have steadily increased since February 2001, when she was hired. She even parlayed her chipperness into a sitcom role, playing Faith Fairfield on Hope & Faith for three seasons, making her one of the hardest working people in show business.

Speaking of great assets, she's been married to super-hot Mark Consuelos since eloping in 1996; together they have three children: Michael, Lola, and Joaquin.
