Cue the confetti and party blowers, because Michael Consuelos is now officially 27 years old.

Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos's eldest son recently celebrated his birthday on June 2, and they marked the occasion with a sweet video tribute, featuring throwback footage from his childhood. The proud parents jointly posted a montage and wrote, "Happy 27th birthday to the founding member of our family @Michael.Consuelos, you got the ball rolling baby and we love you!"

Fittingly set to Curtis Mayfield's "Move on Up," the video features several highlights dating back to when Michael was born. It begins with a clip of his dad in scrubs, getting emotional as he holds baby Michael for the first time at the hospital. Then, it continues with footage of Michael's playful moments with his parents and siblings, as well as fun snippets from trick-or-treating and previous birthdays.

In the comments, actress Uzo Aduba wrote, "This is precious. Happy Birthday!!!" Eva LaRue also wrote, "Love the video, Sooo beautiful! Happyyyy Birthday Michael!"

Ripa and Consuelos weren't the only ones who shared their well wishes. Michael's sister, Lola, took to her IG Stories to pay tribute with a heartfelt message—and she even revealed his special nickname. She wrote, "Happy birthday to the sweetest soul in the whole wide world. You are the greatest big brother, we love you so much Mikey Joe."

Ripa and Consuelos welcomed Michael in 1997 and he's the oldest of three siblings. His sister, Lola (22), was born in June 2001 and his brother, Joaquin (21), in February 2003.

If you've been following his work, then you already know that Michael is following in his parents' footsteps by pursuing acting. He has appeared in projects like Riverdale and The Bensonhurst Spelling Bee. And most recently, he played Petey in the Lifetime film, Let's Get Physicalwhich is executive produced by Ripa and Consuelos. 

While discussing the film with People, he said, "I read the script and I really, really enjoyed the character. I thought he was really funny. Also, you know, it was offered to me—and when you are starting out, when something is offered, you take it. It was kind of a no-brainer for me."

Something tells me that Michael's 27th year will be a great one—and I can't wait to see what new projects he has in store.
