Kelly Ripa couldn't resist sneaking in a reminder of her marriage to husband Mark Consuelos yesterday, and her Fourth of July Instagram gallery even included her bikini-clad. Marking Independence Day on Thursday, the 53-year-old TV host took fans on a trip down memory, lane, sharing photos from 1973 onwards as she melted fans with her childhood photos and that cute kiss with Mark. Kelly, fresh from a Switzerland vacation with her cohost husband, had fans going nuts over the "little Kelly" moments, although a fair few were likely eyeing up the star's toned swimsuit body.

Kelly Ripa Marks 1973-2024 On Instagram

Scroll for the photos. Sharing the cutest ever photo of herself posing indoors and on a bicycle, Kelly kicked off her gallery in kiddy mode, showing off her red-and-white sundress and grinning with her hair in pigtails as she held a trophy.

Another childhood moment followed, but there was a massive fast-forward in the third slide as fans got a fairly up-to-date photo of a shirtless Mark affectionately kissing his wife. Kelly, who has been married to Mark since 1996, stunned in a skimpy triangle bikini top while reminding fans of her muscular figure, but the vibe was sweet as fans gushed over the couple now wed over 28 years.

Further themed photos included an aerial view of Liberty Island, a shot of Kelly wearing a "Freedom" sweater, plus fresh flowers and tons of food. "Fourth of July. Fourth of July 🇺🇸 a few snaps of celebrations from 1973-2024," Kelly Ripa wrote in her caption.

Many fans sent a "Happy 4th!" greeting, although others sent the former actress more personal notes. "So cute! Love the picture of little Kelly. You still look like that ...all you need to do is wear pigtails on the show... Loved the show today! Have a Safe & Happy July 4th!" one said.

Insanely Toned Swimsuit Body

Kelly didn't need to resort to a throwback as she thrilled Instagram with this poolside photo. In January, the blonde enjoyed a luxurious getaway with husband Mark, sharing this swimsuit shot of herself and her shirtless hubby as she flaunted her super-toned body in a strapless bathing suit.

Showing off her peachy rear, flat stomach, and toned legs, Kelly wrote: "Greetings from Captains Underpants (One last swim)." Topping replies was a hilarious response from former Bravo star Lisa Rinna, who said: "I’m sorry to see that you’ve both just let yourselves go. Let’s do better in 2024."
