Kelly Ripa‘s latest Instagram update just got hijacked by husband Mark Consuelos. The “Live” With Kelly and Ryan” host took to the platform on Wednesday with her latest promotional role for vitamins brand Personal Nutrition, but the comments section to Kelly’s post took an interesting turn – that’s what happens when the husband personally chimes in.
Kelly’s photos showed her in a marbled bathroom and posing with an open box of Personal Nutrition supplements. The 49-year-old was wearing blue jeans and a dark cardigan, striking an enthusiastic facial expression in her opening snap – Kelly was also holding the product’s box upside-down with a strip coming out of it.
Kelly’s post also showed her smiling downwards as she held Personal Nutrition’s products, with the final photo simply showing the blonde’s hands with little pills in her palm.
A caption stuck to the brand.
“Guess what? I’ve discovered a super convenient way to take vitamins and supplements that takes all the guesswork out of it. @personanutrition has made it so simple. You just answer a few questions through their assessment about your age, diet, prescription medications and other lifestyle factors. (Be honest!) Your responses determine your personalized recommendation. All verified by a nutritionist so you can trust what you’re taking. What I like best is I can speak to a nutritionist if I have questions about my program,” Kelly wrote, also telling fans to check her stories.
Kelly’s post didn’t take long to see one comment get upvoted to the top. Husband Mark swooped in, and his reply racked up over 360 likes in two hours.
“Can I be honest?!?! Thought that was an ultrasound…,” the actor wrote.
It looked like Instagram was agreeing with the “Riverdale” star.
“So di I!!!!! Omg Love it!” one fan wrote.
“@instasuelos it’s a boy!” another jokingly wrote.
“I think you both be freaking out! Lol” was another comment.
Admittedly, with the lighting, the white strip did somewhat resemble an ultrasound.
While the purpose of Kelly’s post was clearly to promote the vitamins brand she’s now affiliated with, it appeared that the star’s followers were more gripped by her luxurious bathroom.
“Bathroom dreams,” one fan wrote.
“Omg love your bathroom,” another said.
“Ok this is cute and all….but I want ur sink just sayin’…” was yet another reply centering around the luxe bathroom setting.
And it just went on…and on…and on.
“Can we all just take a moment to appreciate that gorgeous bathroom though?” one user added.
Pay on Instagram directly correlates with followers – the more you have, the more you earn.
Vox broke down the potential earnings.
“Influencers with up to 1 million followers can get $10,000 [per post], depending on the platform, and 1 million followers and up, you’re getting into territory where they can charge $100,000. Some can even get $250,000 for a post! Especially if the content is on Youtube and the influencer is in the gaming industry.”
Kelly has 2.6 million followers. Her minimum $75 million net worth is, however, largely due to her morning show host career and acting past.
