Michael Strahan was elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame on Saturday.

The former New York Giants star, of course, is now Kelly Ripa’s co-host on “Live! with Kelly and Michael.”

He ranks fifth in NFL history with 141.5 sacks, including the single-season record of 22.5 in 2001.

Strahan’s selection came after a nine-hour meeting of the Hall of Fame’s Board of Selectors on the eve of the Super Bowl.

Ripa tweeted, “Congratulations to the incredible @michaelstrahan a Giant among men! So proud to know you. X.”

Walter Jones, Andre Reed, Aeneas Williams, Derrick Brooks, Claude Humphrey and Ray Guy were also voted into the Canton, Ohio institution.
