Kelly Ripa loves all three of her children, but one stands out above the others.

In an interview from Wednesday's episode of "Live With Kelly and Ryan," Ripa told guest Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi that her baby, Joaquin, is the "best."

During a conversation about the birth of Polizzi's third child, Ripa gushed that her third child was always the easiest to handle.

"I hope my other kids are not watching this but they're not. Here's what: third kid is the best kid," she said. "They sleep, they do their homework, they pick their crap up off the floor. ... They just know they've got to give you a break."

Ripa and her husband, actor Mark Consuelos, both 48, are parents to three children: Michael, 22, Lola, 18, and Joaquin, 16.

The summer has been action-packed for the family, as they recently celebrated Lola's graduation from high school and took a trip to Europe.
