Kelly Ripa Shares Never-Before-Seen Childhood Photos of Herself & Husband Mark Consuelos

Kelly Ripa recently shared childhood photos of herself and her husband, Mark Consuelos, and we can’t look away.

Earlier this month, the Live with Kelly and Ryan co-host, 50, shared a slideshow on her personal Instagram account, featuring never-before-seen throwback pictures of Ripa and Consuelos.

The first photo shows Ripa posing in front of a Christmas tree as she casually holds her foot. Apart from the adorable pigtails, not much has changed since the pic was taken. (Even Ripa’s smile looks nearly identical.)

The second photo features Consuelos riding a toy horse, while his two siblings smile for the camera. Upon closer inspection, we can confirm that it is, in fact, the Riverdale star, since everything from the eyebrows to the button nose screams mini Consuelos.

Ripa captioned the post, “#fbf A holiday story. Jersey 1974 Vs. Sardinia 1972. The little girl holding her shoe grew up to marry the little boy riding his horse.”

This isn’t the first time Ripa has posted old photos on social media. The talk show host has practically become the queen of Throwback Thursday by breaking out the photo albums on a regular basis. This includes everything from vacation snaps and New Orleans Pride pictures to tributes to her Hope & Faith days.

Keep ’em coming, Kelly.
