Kelly Ripa’s Youngest Child Is Officially 18—& You Need to See the Birthday Tribute She Posted for Him

Another day, another Kelly Ripa tribute to a family member on Instagram. And this time, one of her kids is celebrating a major milestone.

On Wednesday, the Live with Kelly and Ryan star shared a video on social media in honor of her youngest son Joaquin’s, birthday. And we simply cannot believe he’s already 18 years old. “Joaquin 18!!!!” she captioned the video collage on IG. “Happy birthday to the light of our lives! You fill every day with joy, and make everything better! We love you to the moon and beyond @joaquinconsuelos @instasuelos.”

Lucky for us, the video footage featured everything from throwback vacation snaps to graduation pics. Not to mention, there were a ton of photos featuring Joaquin and his father, Mark Consuelos, practically looking like twins.

Of course, Consuelos also shared a slideshow of his own on his personal account (and even revealed the birthday boy’s nickname). He wrote, “Happy 18th Birthday Quino! @kellyripa our little guy is all grown up. We love you, Joaquin!” We couldn’t help but notice Ripa’s flirty comment on her husband’s post. “You know what? Making him was so much fun......” she quipped alongside a handful of heart emojis.

If you didn’t know, Joaquin is the youngest of the couple's three children. The duo also shares 23-year-old son, Michael, and a 19-year-old daughter, Lola. While we don’t know for sure, we have a feeling that the soon-to-be high school graduate will follow in his older siblings' footsteps and attend NYU.

Happy birthday, Quino!
