Kelly Ripa Calls Her Family the ‘Loves of My Life’ in Valentine’s Day Tribute on Instagram

Kelly Ripa has not one, but four Valentines this year. And she’s not afraid to show her love for all of them on social media.

Yesterday, the talk show host posted a snapshot of her three children, Michael, Joaquin and Lola, on Instagram. The three of them were shown sitting side-by-side and sharing an embrace in a tropical setting. Ripa also posted a picture of her and her husband, Mark Consuelos, staring lovingly into each other's eyes.

For the latter pic, she rocked a white, flowy dress with a matching gold necklace and bracelet. Meanwhile, Consuelos donned a dark, navy blue shirt. Ripa captioned the slideshow, “Happy Valentine’s Day to the loves of my life!” with multiple heart emojis.

Fans couldn’t stop gushing over the family photos in the comments section. “The loveliest,” one fan wrote. Another person chimed in and wrote, “Such a beautiful family!”

Though Ripa shared a heartfelt post on the day of love, she surprisingly doesn’t celebrate the holiday at all. On Monday’s episode of Live with Kelly and Ryan, the couple revealed that they don’t celebrate Valentine’s Day. When co-host Ryan Seacrest asked why, she answered, “We’ve been together for almost 30 years so we've done everything a person could possibly do.”

Ripa and Consuelos met on the set of the soap opera, All My Children, in 1995 and tied the knot the following year. Last September, Ripa gave some insight into her marriage while talking about the HBO series, Scenes from a Marriage.

The show follows a couple, who are played by Jessica Chastain and Oscar Isaac. They are struggling to keep their relationship afloat, which is something Ripa couldn’t connect to in the slightest.

“I was like, none of this would ever be happening in the Mark Consuelos household because he would have nipped all of this in the bud immediately,” she said in a past episode of Live

“He would have been like, ‘Oh, you’re upset? I know how to take care of that. Oh, you don't feel good about something? I'll take care of that. Oh, you’re feeling like maybe you're overworked? I got you. I know what you need,'” Ripa added.

Keep the throwback pics coming, Kelly.
