Kelly Ripa just showed her support for her departing Live co-host Ryan Seacrest in a message from the heart.

“You are family here. We love you,” said Kelly in her message.

“I know how exhausting it is going back and forth. I fully understand your decision-making.”

At first, many thought it was Ripa leaving the daytime talk show, but many were surprised to find out it was Ryan leaving the show.

Seacrest will leave the show this spring.

ABC has announced Kelly’s husband, Mark Consuelos will be the replacement for Seacrest. He has appeared on the show several times and fans of the show seem to be pleased with the choice.
