Perfect mother and morning talk show host (and possible robot?) Kelly Ripa, hosted a very special early screening of Lion King 3D in NYC Saturday.
Kelly brought her cute kids Michael, Lola and Joaquin to mingle with the stars and (we assume) cry under their 3D glasses.
Other celebs that walked the red carpet before viewing the rerelease of the 1994 classic include: Brooke Shields and kids Rowan and Grier, Christy Turlington with husband Ed Burns and thier children Grace and Finn, Kelly Rutherford (Gossip Girl) & her son, and Billy Crudup.
See more pics of the families in their 3D glasses below!
