Kelly Ripa officially announced her new co-host today: Michael Strahan! The record-breaking former Giant filled the chair where Regis Philbin once sat for the first time this morning. "I adore you, and I am so happy to be here and be a part of this," he told Ripa at the top of their hour. "You know how they say it's a dream come true? I truly can't say that because I didn't even know I could dream this." In return, his blonde co-host said that it was a "great pleasure" to have him on-set. So now we can stop guessing! Tell us: Do you like her pick? Let us know in the comments!
