One of America's most bubbly celebrities celebrates a birthday today.

Yes, Kelly Ripa is now 43 years old!

The talk show host has a new haircut and a relatively new colleague, as Michael Strahan took over co-anchoring duties about a year ago.

Ripa rose to fame as Hayley Vaughn on All My Children and married and married Mark Consuelos on May 1, 1996. They have three children together.

Still, despite these accomplishments, Ripa isn't the most impressive person to have been born on October 2: If he were alive, Mahatma Gandhi would be 144 years old today.

Among other famous folks celebrating a birthday:

  • Sting (62)
  • Camilla Belle (27)
  • Rima Fakih (27)
  • Samantha Barks (23)
