Kelly Ripa Just Posted a Major Thirst Trap Pic of Husband Mark Consuelos: ‘Objects May Be Thirstier Than They Appear’

Kelly Ripa is sending a “thirsty reminder” to her followers to watch the latest episode of The Generation Gap with a steamy pic of her hot hubby, Mark Consuelos. (And sure enough, it’s working.)

The talk show host posted the sexy photo on IG, showcasing the Riverdale actor in a completely shirtless state, with only a pair of black aviator sunglasses and a golden dog tag to compliment his short haircut. 

Not only was Consuelos giving off young Erik Estrada vibes in the photo, but the entire scene had an envy-inducing summer feel to it, with tropical palm trees visible in the background.

Ripa wrote in the caption, “A thirsty reminder to watch an all-new #GenerationGap tonight at 9/8c on ABC 😎🤩 (objects may be thirstier than they appear 💦).”

Her followers rushed to the comments section to send a few thirsty remarks toward the All My Children alum. One person wrote, “Stud!!!” Another fan chimed in and said, “What a wonderful way to open my IG and see this! Thank you 😆.”

In case you didn’t know, Ripa currently hosts the new game show The Generation Gap. Back in July, she posted a promo video on her personal IG page, teasing what audiences should expect from the brand new ABC series. 

The Generation Gap features a group of contestants from different age groups who must answer questions about the other’s generation. In the below clip, the questions range from celebrity names to pop culture references and more.

We only have three words for this thirst trap: Hot hot hot!
