Ripa has a very close friendship with Cohen that dates back many years. In an interview with Variety in 2017, Ripa shared that she and her husband Mark Consuelos met Cohen at a Christmas party at Bryant Gumbel’s apartment in the Big Apple.

Even though Ripa and Consuelos are both younger than Cohen, his son Ben has taken to calling them “Mee Maw” and “Pee Paw,” which are names generally given to grandparents. Cohen revealed such in an Instagram post he shared with his 4.6 million followers in September 2021.

“He calls Kelly & Mark ‘Mee Maw’ and ‘Pee Paw’…. I call them GILFS,” Cohen captioned a couple of photos of his son hanging out with Consuelos and Ripa.
