Everything at Live With Kelly and Michael is going GREAT, you guys!

Kelly Ripa has been missing from the morning program ever since she was blindsided by Michael Strahan‘s announcement that he was leaving the show for Good Morning America last week.

Though the 45-year-old was giving her bosses at ABC and her cohost the silent treatment about when she would be back, Ripa announced over the weekend that she would return to the show on Tuesday.

And despite it probably being super awkward for the hosts to be in the same room together — let alone pretend to get along on live TV — Strahan could NOT be more excited for Ripa’s return!

The former NFL pro hosted alongside Pretty Little Liars star Shay Mitchell on Monday’s Live, where he told the audience how stoked he was for Kelly’s return:

“Good morning everybody! Everybody is fired up! Kelly had a scheduled day off to celebrate her 20th wedding anniversary with her husband Mark [Consuelos]. She is going to be back tomorrow which we are all excited about!”

Ummm├óΓé¼┬ª we’re not sure how up-to-date he is on everything, but Kelly actually cancelled her trip to Turks & Caicos with her husband because she was so distraught from the shake up…

Clearly, Strahan is trying to be professional and play nice for the cameras, but we’re not sure if the petite blonde will be as chummy she returns to the show on Tuesday!

How do YOU think Kelly is going to address this daytime drama? Tune in at 9 a.m. EST to find out!
