"That's kind of the goal after you raise them and we're still raising them, but they're adults, so we're not really, we're kind of done. They're on their own for the most part. But I was just really thrilled and honored that my kids would want to spend time with me and my wife."

"And not be embarrassed by bringing their boyfriend or a girlfriend around," the proud dad adds.

In January, Consuelos talked about the vacation during an episode of Live with Kelly and Mark. "No, it was great, it was great. I never thought it would happen," Consuelos said at the time.

"I have to say, our kids have such good taste," Ripa noted. "They have good pickers," Consuelos added.

"Like their mother!" Ripa said. "The boys brought their girlfriends, Lola brought her boyfriend." Consuelos then went on to say that they all stayed in separate rooms.

"We didn't know how it was going to go, you know what I mean? You just don’t know. Everybody seems nice when you have dinner with them, but how’s it going to go?" Ripa asked.

Luckily, the proud mom noted that everyone got along great. "It was so nice," she said.
