Kelly Ripa is posting vacation photos on Instagram from Greece, and aside from our extreme jealousy of the beautiful coastline, we noticed something else in one of her posts that we were not expecting at all. (Make sure you click through to the second picture in her Instagram post!)
Ripa shared what she called a “double TBT” of her husband of 22 years, Mark Consuelos, with their sons, Michael Consuelos, 21, and Joaquin Consuelos, 15. The first photo is from 2014 and the second is from this year.
Four years is a big difference when it comes to young adults, and it’s clear that Ripa’s sons are growing up fast. It’s almost hard to recognize them — not because they are on opposite sides in the second photo, but because of how much they’ve changed! Their dad looks almost the same, which is a testament to how well both he and Ripa have aged, despite trolls insisting Ripa is too old to be wearing a bikini on the beach. Our advice for those people is to keep their comments to themselves.
Ripa and Mark Consuelos’ daughter, Lola Consuelos, isn’t pictured in the photo. As the middle child, she’s also obviously growing up just like her brothers. Ripa did share two throwback photos for Lola’s 17th birthday on June 16: a photo from Ripa’s pregnancy and a photo from when she was born, with the caption, “#tbt 2001 @instasuelos got the best #fathersday present in the form of Lola.”
On Mother’s Day, Ripa shared a family photo from a celebratory brunch, and the similarities between all three kids are super-noticeable. This family looks beautiful together. No matter how many people come at Ripa for her vacations or her work ethic, no one can say she doesn’t obviously love her family.
