Kelly Ripa Gets Inducted Into New Jersey Hall of Fame!

Kelly Ripa just got a high honor from her home state!

The 46-year-old Live! with Kelly and Ryan host was inducted into the New Jersey Hall of Fame on Sunday (May 7) at the Asbury Park Convention in Asbury Park, NJ.

Kelly, who grew up in Stratford, was given the Performing Arts Award for her contributions to entertainment.

She was presented with the award by her father Joe and was joined by lots of family in the audience.

“I really am thrilled that I got to share the night with my parents and my children. I’m only sorry my husband isn’t here – he’s working, but it’s nice to have all of my family and so many friends here,” Kelly said on stage.

Congratulations, Kelly!
