Life So Far
Joaquin Antonio was born into a family that is constantly under the spotlight, with both of his parents finding success in acting, and on television. He grew up as the youngest of three children, and enjoys the fruits of the labor of his parents. It is not known if he will pursue a similar career to that of his parents, but it is likely due to the nature of most children from the entertainment industry deciding on similar careers.
However, there is also a chance that they would not pursue it, losing interest, or finding other passions as they grow up. He is currently focused on school but there are no details revealed as to where he is studying, or any specific subjects. One indication that he is getting used to having a public image is that he is joining his parents in public events, and television appearances. He is also a frequent visitor in his parents’ social media accounts, so many sources would not be surprised if he started acting in the near future.
Father – Mark Consuelos
Joaquin Antonio’s father is an actor, who got his breakthrough in 1995 when he was cast in the soap opera entitled “All My Children” playing the character Mateo Santos, the on-screen love interest of his mother’s character. Eventually, his father left the soap opera in the early 2000s, and started appearing in feature films, including “My Super Ex-Girlfriend”, and “The Great Raid”. He also made guest appearances in shows such as “Friends”, “SeaQuest”, and “Third Watch”.
Later in 2012, he made several guest appearances in the “Law & Order” franchise, playing different characters for “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit”, and “Law & Order: Criminal Intent”. He also had a recurring role in the show “American Horror Story: Asylum”, which was the second season of the anthology horror series. One of his latest and most popular roles is in the series “Riverdale” in the role of Hiram Lodge, the father of Veronica Lodge. The characters of the show are based on the “Archie” comic series. His eldest son Michael is set to appear in the show as a younger version of Hiram.
Mother – Kelly Ripa
Prior to “All My Children”, Joaquin Antonio’s mother first found fame as a regular dancer in the shows “Dancin’ On Air” and “Dance Party USA”. She got her first major acting role in “All My Children”, playing the troubled party girl Hayley Vaughan. Of Joaquin’s parents, she was the first to leave the show in 2002, to focus on “Live! with Regis and Kelly” as she was selected to replace co-host Kathie Lee Gifford. She was the first among potential candidates and her chemistry with her co-host Philbin became responsible for a successful as well as strong television show that averaged six million viewers daily during their time together.
In 2011, Regis announced that he was retiring at the age of 80, and Kelly replaced him as the head of the show which was re-titled as “Live! With Kelly”. Soon a rotating lineup of co-hosts were introduced in hopes finding a permanent partner for her, including Seth Meyers, Neil Patrick Harris, Josh Groban, Jerry Seinfeld and Martin Short. Eventually, the chosen permanent co-host was former professional football player Michael Strahan, who stayed with the show until 2017 when he moved to “Good Morning America”, and was replaced by Ryan Seacrest.
Parents’ Romance, Marriage, and Other Endeavors
Joaquin Antonio’s parents started their romance shortly after they met on the set of “All My Children”, but kept their relationship a secret from most of the cast members, save for Winsor Harmon who Mark lived with at the time; they secretly married in 1996 in Las Vegas. The family is very close to radio personality Howard Stern and his wife Beth Ostrosky, with Joaquin’s father performing the marriage ceremony for the couple in 2008. Joaquin’s family has an apartment in New York City worth $6 million as well as multiple luxury cars.
His parents also created their own production company in 2007, called Milojo which is named after their three children. The company has been responsible for the documentary “The Streak” which focuses on the 34-year winning streak of the Brandon High School wrestling team. The company also worked on the series “Homemade Millionaire”, and the short film entitled “The Bensonhurst Spelling Bee”, which stars Joaquin’s brother Michael. The company seems to be intent on using the family’s talents for its ongoing and upcoming projects.
