And that's not all: Ripa showed off a peachy bottom as she hung out poolside with friends on a break from filming

Ab fab! Kelly Ripa looked absolutely fabulous as she showed off her toned stomach in Hawaii yesterday

The clue is in the name for this television chat show host and Kelly Ripa certainly lives up to her moniker.

The 41-year-old host of daytime show Live! with Kelly showed off her ripped abs as she hung out poolside in Hawaii yesterday.

Ripa looked incredible as she slipped into mis-matched swimwear on a break from filming her show, flaunting her petite frame in a brown triangle shape bikini top and green briefs featuring flattering splits at the side.

The toned star may not have been keen to hide her beach-ready body but she kept her blonde locks well covered from sun with a fashionable bucket hat.

Her legs looked especially firm as she unwrapped her enviable figure from a beach towel after taking a snorkelling trip earlier in the day.

Kelly – who has been spending time with friends and her husband Mark Consuelos in the American state - recently told the US edition of Good Housekeeping about her love of being active and how she keeps in such amazing shape.

Kelly says that she doesn't just exercise to look good but also does it to 'quiet' her mind.

‘I work out every day. It's part of my life,’ Ripa says in the March issue. ‘That's one of the benefits of having kids in school full-time.'

She continued in the interview: ‘I'm usually done with work around 11am, so I have time before I pick the kids up from school.

‘I do it more for my insides than my outside, but the outside gets a nice benefit, too. I feel like my mind is a little quieter when I exercise.'

She says: 'I work out with a trainer, Anna Kaiser, three days a week.

'We do what I would call cardio ballet and power yoga. I take spinning classes at Soul Cycle [in New York], which I love, and I run.

'I get bored, so I like to mix it up a little bit. I try to make my heart beat out of my chest, hard-core, once a day for at least a half hour. I think that's very important.'

The TV presenter says she's not obsessive about exercise: 'If I'm exhausted and I just don't feel like it, then I don't do it.

'I am a human being, after all. But I also know I'm the kind of person who, if I take one day off, well, it's very easy for me to take the next day off and then quit exercising.

'If I don't do it every day, I won't do it at all.'

As mother to Michael, 14, Lola, 10, and Joaquin, 8, the mum on the run says she's not rigid about her eating habits either. She revealed: 'I'm not militant about anything.

'If there's cheesecake in the house, I'll have some.

'If I'm in the mood for something, I'll have it. I don't obsess about anything.

'I could have three or four "cheat days" in a week and then not have dessert for another three months.'
