Kelly Ripa Fans Are Losing It Over Her Latest Thirst-Trap Pic of Her Husband: ‘I’d Use Him as a Flotation Device’

Remember when Kelly Ripa posted a thirst-trap of her husband, Mark Consuelos? Well, she’s at it again.

Yesterday, the Live with Kelly and Ryan co-host, 49, posted a never-before-seen photo on her personal Instagram account, featuring the Riverdale star, also 49, living his best quarantine life.

The pic shows Consuelos floating in the pool in black swim trunks. The best part? The actor’s shorts are pulled up to expose his untanned thighs, which have apparently never seen the light of day. (#Guilty)

Ripa captioned the post, “Sunday vibes #daddy,” along with a blue heart and water emoji.

Fans immediately flooded the comments section with words of praise for the candid snapshot. One user thanked Ripa for giving the people what they want, writing, “You’re a good person Kelly Ripa.” Others went, um, there: “I’d climb on that and use him as a floatation device.”

This isn’t the first time Ripa has shared photos of Consuelos during lockdown. Last week, the TV personality posted a glimpse at her thriving garden, which included a shirtless cameo by Consuelos. She also celebrated throwback Thursday with a rare vacation photo, featuring the entire family.

This includes their three children—Michael (23), Lola (19) and Joaquin (17)— along with Consuelos’s parents, Saul and Camilla.

We’ll have whatever Consuelos is having.
