Kelly Ripa Shares a Rare Throwback Photo of Mark Consuelos and Son Michael on Instagram

Live with Kelly and Ryan host Kelly Ripa, 52, is practically the queen of posting fun throwbacks on Instagram. Whether she’s sharing an old vacation photo with her family or a rare snapshot taken during her acting days on All My Children, we always love taking a small stroll down memory lane with the talk show host. 

Recently, the Live Wire author posted a photo of her son, Michael Consuelos, 25, spending quality time with his dad, Mark Consuelos, 51. In the throwback pic, Mark is walking the streets of Italy with baby Michael sitting on his shoulders and casually holding a handful of his dad’s black, curly locks. 

Ripa wrote in the caption, “#tbt Italian holiday [Italian flag] @michael.consuelos atop @instasuelos circa 1998 #daddy.”

In the comments section, Ripa’s followers couldn’t stop fangirling over the photo of the father-son duo. One person wrote, “Love this,” with an array of red heart emojis. Another commenter pointed out how much Michael resembles his father, writing, “Michael looks so much like his daddy!”

This is far from the first time fans have noticed the uncanny resemblance between the father and son on social media. Back in June 2021, the Riverdale alum dedicated a special birthday tribute to his eldest son on Instagram. 

The father of three posted a slideshow of photos on his profile, where his followers got a chance to see childhood throwbacks and photos taken from past bday celebrations. In the first photo (see above), Michael and Mark practically look like identical twins, from their smile, hair and similar facial shape. 

Fans were quick to point out their striking features in the comments section, with one person writing, “The point was to reproduce not to clone [crying laughing emoji].”

We never get tired of seeing your iconic throwback pics, Kelly.
