Kelly Ripa is thankful for the family she’s created with Mark Consuelos so she shared adorable family throwbacks ahead of spending the holiday without her husband. The 50-year-old “LIVE With Kelly and Ryan” host is reminiscing this turkey day on dinners past when the whole family could get together around the table.
Taking to her Instagram Story, Kelly Ripa dropped several TBTs showing her children as kids on Thanksgiving as well as one of Mark Consuelos. The duo is spending this Thanksgiving miles apart.
Earlier this week, Mark Consuelos dropped the bombshell that he’d be celebrating the holiday in Vancouver, Canada with his cast and crew. The 49-year-old actor is still filming season five of his hit show, “Riverdale.” Taking time away from filming to virtually appear alongside his wife and their three kids — Michael, 23, Lola, 19, and Joaquin, 17 — on “LIVE” for their socially distant cooking session, Mark Consuelos told viewers the family’s Thanksgiving was going to look a little different this year.
Kelly Ripa will be preparing Thanksgiving dinner, including her family’s famous cheesy biscuits, for just her and their three kids in New York. The beloved talk show host revealed that Lola Consuelos was the last child to make it home for the holiday from college.
As for Mark Consuelos, he’ll be hanging with his “Riverdale” castmates who have turned into his family since the series started three years ago. Kelly Ripa must be missing Mark extra today because her old snaps say it all.
Taking to her Instagram Story in the early hours of Thursday, November 26, the “LIVE” host went way, way back in her photo vault. She first shared a smiling throwback of their children. Their oldest Michael looks exactly like his handsome daddy in the shot. Taking control, Michael posed in the middle with his arms around his siblings.
Lola looks adorable bundled up in a colorful scarf and smiling with her braces with the cheerful youngest beside her. “Thankful for these turkeys,” Kelly Ripa captioned the tbt.
The second shot that Kelly Ripa shared showcased just how elaborate their Thanksgivings past used to be. In the photo, Mark Consuelos is seen flashing his sexy smirk alongside an empty table with about 20 elegant place settings. Wearing a tight black shirt to showcase his muscles, Kelly Ripa wrote “Thanksgiving #TBT.”
Despite being miles apart, Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos still keep their relationship hot. She’s often sharing steaming hot throwbacks with the actor and even dropping some naughty comments about his manhood.
