Kelly Ripa Shares ‘Star Wars’ Throwback Photo of Son Michael—& He’s So *Tiny*

Star Wars fans will be pleased to know that Kelly Ripa celebrated the sci-fi franchise by sharing a never-before-seen picture of her son, Michael Consuelos.

Yesterday, the Live with Kelly and Ryan co-host, 51, posted a rare throwback photo on her personal Instagram page. The snap was taken several years ago, featuring young Michael posing next to Chewbacca from the Star Wars universe. (FYI, May 4 has become an informal commemorative holiday in honor of the franchise’s catchphrase: May the force be with you.)

In the photo, a very tiny Michael is standing next to a person dressed in an impressive Wookiee costume, which is complete with Chewbacca’s signature bandolier hanging from his shoulder. The Riverdale star is wearing red pants and a white polo shirt.

Ripa wrote in the caption, “May the 4th be with you my son. #starwars #starwarsday #wookie #2001.”

One person wrote, “Hahahahhah!!!! PERFECTION!!!” Another added, “This is the best thing I’ve seen all day…perfect way to end a very long day. And, such a nice young man @michael.consuelos has become.” Even Ripa’s husband, Mark Consuelos, couldn’t help but chime in: “Thank you, my Master.”

The post comes just a few days after Michael shared another throwback photo. In the snap, Michael (who looks around 5 years old) is being held up by his parents. He’s wearing a pirate hat with Captain Hook on the center, as well as a fake hook on his right hand. The caption read, “90% sure this wasn’t even Halloween.”

May the 4th be with you all.
