In honor of their son, Michael Consuelous, turning 22 years old, Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos took to Instagram to share super sweet birthday shout-outs. The proud parents-of-three honored their eldest child on Sunday, June 2.
“Happy Birthday @michaelconsway, talented, handsome, smart, kind and 22. You started this whole thing!” the Live With Kelly and Ryan host captioned a video she shared of her handsome son. Kelly, 48, adorably added 10 gold stars at the end of the caption.
The heartwarming clip she shared played a slideshow of photos of her and Mark’s son through the years with his famous parents, siblings — Lola Consuelos, 17, and Joaquin Consuelos, 16 — and friends. The blonde beauty’s tribute didn’t end with the sweet video, though. Kelly also shared multiple snapshots of Michael on her Instagram stories, as well as his birthday twin, Andy Cohen, who turned 51 on the same day.
Mark, 48, honored his son’s birthday by sharing two photo booth pics from a family trip to Australia in 2002. “Happy 22 to our #1 … @michaelconsway … you’ve led the way … We love you. So proud of you,” Mark gushed.
Kelly and Mark are no strangers to opening up about their big brood. In April, the Riverdale star gushed about Michael’s acting debut on the hit drama series. “Working with my son was probably one of the most exciting things I’ve gotten to experience,” the handsome hunk told Esquire, referring to Michael’s cameo role on The CW series. “It was emotional for me, to see him practicing his lines and coming to set. He was so earnest about it. It really was a bucket-list moment for me.” Aww!
It seems like Michael — who majored in film and TV production at New York University — is already following in his famous parent’s footsteps. Besides playing the younger version of his dad’s character, Hiram Lodge, on the CW series, Michael has also appeared on his mom’s morning talk show, voiced characters in Go, Diego, Go! and Duck Dodgers and also worked as a production assistant on three episodes of The Goldbergs last year.
It seems like talent just runs in the family!
