Michael Strahan said Kelly Ripa would be back Tuesday.

“Kelly had a scheduled day off to celebrate her 20th anniversary wedding with her husband, Mark,” Strahan announced Monday. “She’s going to be back tomorrow, which we’re all excited about.”

Ripa had reportedly already requested Friday and Monday off before Strahan announced he was leaving to go to “Good Morning America” in the fall.

She broke her silence last Friday when she emailed the crew of her show and thanked them for their support.

“Sorry for this late Friday night email,” Ripa wrote. “I wanted to thank you all for giving me the time to process this new information. Your kindness, support, and love has overwhelmed me.”

“We are a family and I look forward to seeing you all on Tuesday morning,” she added. “Love, Kelly.”
