Rita Loud is the mother of the Loud children and wife of Lynn Loud Sr.. Rita is a supporting character in The Loud House and a minor character in The Casagrandes.


Rita is caring towards her children, but is not afraid to punish them if they go too far. She and her husband act playfully romantic towards each other, though she is apparently more level-headed than him. An example of this is when she's concerned about Lincoln playing video games too much and tells him to do some sport outside in "The Loudest Yard".

She dreams to be a novelist but initially seems to lack a creative side, as she wrote a story about a bored dental assistant talking to her fish before being inspired by Lincoln to write about a thrill seeker with white hair, himself.


Rita wears a pink buttoned shirt with a white collar and cuffs, and purple pants. She has medium length blonde hair and white earrings. She also wears blue eye shadow and red lipstick, while wearing black low tops. She has bags under her eyes, just like Lincoln.
