Kelly Ripa Shares a Rare Glimpse of Her Gorgeous Swimming Pool & Massive Backyard

Remember when Kelly Ripa gave us a glimpse of her impeccable landscaping? Well, it’s even better than we originally thought.

Yesterday, the Live with Kelly and Ryan co-host, 49, posted a photo on her personal Instagram account, featuring her summer novel recommendation: Mexican Gothic by Silvia Moreno-Garcia.

If you look past the book cover, you’ll notice that Ripa’s massive backyard is featured in the background. While she previously teased it from the indoor perspective, this is the first time we’ve seen an overhead shot of her pool (last time we got an extreme close-up complete with a shirtless Mark Consuelos), which is complete with a shaded lounge chair.

The pic offers an aerial view of her manicured lawn, which is lined with purple flowers along the house. The pool is surrounded gray stone, followed by (what appears to be) never-ending grass.

In the caption, Ripa raved about Mexican Gothic, writing, “Sublime horror for your summer reading. So good I bought the hard copy and the download to read in the dark. #silviamorenogarcia.”

This isn’t the first time Ripa has shared photos of her home on social media. Last month, she shared a sneak peak of her New York City bathroom and her wall décor. A few weeks later, the actress continued the house tour with an exclusive look at her foliage. The selfie shows the actress posing inside her home, while her husband, Consuelos, is standing shirtless in the backyard.

The real question is: Does Consuelos mow the lawn himself? If so, we demand photo evidence.
