Kelly Ripa Posted Another Thirst Trap of Mark Consuelos (But Was More Careful About Her Photo Choice This Time)

It's been over a month since Kelly Ripa posted that photo of Mark Consuelos and his, well, bulge. And it seems like the 50-year-old actress is being more careful about which pics of her hubby she shares on social media these days.

On Monday, the Live with Kelly and Ryan co-host shared some throwback photos of herself and her husband from a past vacation on Instagram. “Because they're all throwbacks now, I give you my forever #mcm MC @instasuelos," she captioned the post, referencing #ManCrushMonday. “Take us away baby.”

In the first photo, we see a shirtless Consuelos lying alongside a gorgeous pool overlooking the ocean. The second features the 49-year-old actor enjoying a cigar while Ripa snaps a selfie. And though Ripa is no stranger to sharing steamy photos of her husband, we couldn't help but notice this time around she opted for a more censored pic (AKA one not prominently featuring his crotch).

As we mentioned above, last month, the All My Children alum posted a slideshow of photos in honor of Halloween that included Consuelos rocking a cop uniform (scroll to the last image). It wasn’t long before followers began drawing attention to the actor’s tight pants in the comments section. One follower wrote, “Ummmm, I’m favoring #10.” We can totally see why.

Of course, Consuelos had his own thoughts on the matter. “Full disclosure, I believe that’s definitely a shadow that’s causing that bulging effect,” he wrote on his wife’s post. Ripa also responded to the fans in another post, calling them “thirst buckets.”

Nice move, Kel. Don’t give those thirst buckets anything to talk about (well, except your shirtless husband, of course).
