Kelly Ripa's Son Michael Made a Surprise Guest Appearance on ‘Live’ Today

Kelly Ripa and Ryan Seacrest had a special guest star on today's episode of Live!, and this person was pulled straight from Ripa's own family.

That's right—Ripa's oldest son, Michael, was one of the visitors on the talk show, along with tech expert Lance Ulanoff. The news was announced on the Live! with Kelly and Ryan Instagram account, where they said, “Tune in now! Michael Consuelos is a guest today!!!”

The featured clip shows the hosts kicking off the episode, with Seacrest sporting a black top and gray pants, while Ripa shows off an Eve Printed Silk Crepe De Chine maxi dress from Saloni (that unfortunately, is currently sold out). And let's not forget Deja Vu's shimmery hot pink top either.

Mark Consuelos made sure to mark the moment on his Instagram Story, where he posted a shot of Michael's interview with the caption, “Looking good dude @michael.consuelos @kellyripa.”

Michael responded to his father's post on his own Story, where he said, “Thanks Dad.”

Ripa's oldest child stopped by to talk about his guest spot on Riverdale, where he plays the younger version of his father's character on the show.

But, this isn't the first time that the aspiring actor and filmmaker has made an appearance on his mom's program. For Ripa's 50th birthday in October, Michael arrived during a surprise segment, where he brought her a giant bouquet of white flowers, as well as a tower of pink, gold and silver balloons.

We'll be looking out for more family cameos in the future.
