Kelly Ripa is showing off her husband Mark Consuelos and you won’t hear us complaining.

Ripa, 53, took to Instagram to share a steamy photo of her hubby. In the pic, Consuelos, also 53, is sporting a pair of sunglasses as he floats on the water in a pool. It seems like a normal summer time pool pic, however, the Emmy-award winning actor’s swimsuit was conveniently photoshopped over with a picture of Gary Janetti’s new book.

Based on the caption, Ripa’s decision to share the edited photo was to spread the word about the book, which was released on July 9.

“Now that i have your attention: don’t forget to pick up @garyjanetti hilarious new book WE ARE EXPERIENCING A SLIGHT DELAY,” Ripa wrote.

“I never left my sofa yet i traveled around the world! (It also makes an amazing modesty garment),” she added. “HAPPY PUB DAY GARY.”

The comments were flooded with people commending Ripa’s creativity.

“That bait worked on me,” one social user shared. “I read the caption and what the book is about. Another chimed, “Well, that worked.” Janetti even shared his admiration for the post, writing, “It was worth writing it for that photo.” To which the talk show host cheekily responded, “I should be in ad sales, but the book sell’s itself.” TV personality Brad Goreski also shared his thoughts writing, “I’ve never wanted to be Gary’s book so badly.”

Ripa is no stranger to sharing photos of her husband on the internet. Last month, she headed to social media to share some throwback pics from his 30th birthday party.

#fbf VINTAGE @instasuelos Suprise 30th birthday party,” the actress and producer captioned the carousel. “Shoutout to his leather pants and bangs!(and yes, I’m pregnant) #daddycool.”

Earlier this year, Ripa also posted a photo of the couple together that was giving major thirst trap energy. The two were standing poolside in their beach attire—Ripa in a one-piece and Consuelos in some black trunks with no shirt.

“Greetings from Captains Underpants [bathing suit and swimsuit emojis]  (One last swim),” she wrote.
