Kelly Ripa Posts Never-Before-Seen Pics of Husband Mark Consuelos as a Child

Kelly Ripa just offered some rare insight into Mark Consuelos's childhood.

On Instagram, the Live with Kelly and Ryan co-host posted a tribute to her father-in-law, Saul Consuelos, and it features a series of Consuelos's family throwback photos. Ripa wrote, "Happy birthday to the man they call Nonno. The only time I’ve seen my father in law without a baby in his arms is when they weren’t born yet. I love you dad."

The post includes a number of Consuelos's childhood memories, from his father playing with him as an infant to his sweet bonding moments with his siblings. In the comments, the actor's sister, Adriana Consuelos, wrote, "I love these memories with our family. [heart emoji] He is the ultimate Nonno."

Not surprisingly, fans immediately called out the resemblance between the Riverdale actor and his lookalike father. One commenter wrote,"Mark is his twin and Michael [Consuelos] is Mark's twin. It would be nice to see a picture of all three of them as babies and together as adults." Another fan added, "Those Consuelos genes are strong!!"

Truer words... If you need proof, check out this post from Ripa's Instagram Story, which shows three generations of the Consuelos family.

They all have the same face, proving that they could legit pass for twins if they were around the same age.

The festive post comes only a few weeks after Ripa celebrated her 50th birthday, which included sparkly balloons, a Fudgie the Whale cake and countless flower arrangements from her husband. On Instagram, Consuelos wrote, "Happy birthday to my little ray of sunshine."

Keep those throwback pics coming, Kelly!
