Both Kelly Ripa and John Callahan starred in “All My Children”. Kelly further opened up about the loss during Monday’s episode of Live! With Kelly and Ryan.
“I had a really a bad weekend this weekend. A very dear friend of mine for many, many years, almost 30 years, passed away over the weekend.”
Kelly talked about how Callahan was a great actor, a good friend and one of the funniest people she has ever met.
He was the ex-husband of my first-born son’s godmother, Eva LaRue. His name was John Callahan. He was 66 years old — way too young to be taken from us.
Kelly Ripa is recovering from the loss. Even their daughters are of the same age and very good friends.
I just want everyone to know, Eva and Kaya, that we are thinking of you and we are just so sad and so devastated. So, I apologize in advance if I seem out of it. I really actually am, I’m terribly out of it. You know, forgive me for it.
The news of his death was shared by Eva LaRue, his ex-wife. Prayers to Eva, Kaya and their family.
