I have always loved celeb mom Kelly Ripa for how real and honest she is about everything in her life. She doesn’t seem to sugar-coat any of her challenges being the busy working mom of three kids, and she always manages to laugh when things don’t go totally perfect.

Kelly and her husband Mark Consuelos sat down for an interview with Rachel Ray, and Kelly totally admitted that they have one child that is their favorite over the other two!

Kelly told Rachel, “Well, we don’t really admit it, but it is Joaquin!” Mark added, “He knows it, too, and the other kids know it as well. It’s very accepted. He’s just nicer to us! That’s what we say: He’s just nicer to us.”

In defense of admitting that Joaquin is their favorite kid, Kelly said, “You guys all have favorite kids, too! You may not admit it out loud; you may say ‘I love all my kids the same,’ but you know in the event of an emergency, there’s one kid you’d reach for first.”

I only have one child, so I can’t really comment on the whole favorite thing. I’d love to hear opinions from other parents though. Do you have a favorite child?
