Kelly Ripa And Mark Consuelos’ Son Is All Grown Up

He definitely takes after his father.

You may know Kelly Ripa as host of “LIVE with Kelly,” but this actress didn’t start out on talk shows. She got her beginning as an actress and TV personality as a star on “All My Children,” as some of you may remember.

While on the show, she fell in love with her on-screen romance, Mark Consuelos. The two have been together ever since! Cue the “awwws!”

The couple has three children together, and now the internet is freaking out over how totally cute their eldest son is. Michael Consuelos is now 19 years old. And the world’s wondering how he went from cute little kid to dashing heartthrob seemingly overnight (because, seriously, time flies).

Even back then, they were adorable kids.

Then again, they come from two great-looking parents, right?

Now, wait for it… here is Michael with his mom after a proud moment voting for the very first time.

Ripa and her husband, like so many parents, can’t believe they’re “old enough to have a son in college,” as she recently said on her show. Considering that Ripa and her husband seemed to have not aged for years, I must say, I find it hard to believe, as well.

But, 19-year-old Michael is just one of their three children. They also have a daughter, Lola, who is 15, and another son, Joaquin, who is 13. Together, they make the perfect little family.

Many are noting the similarity between Michael and his dad, and I think it’s the beautiful Lola who looks the most like her mom.

As far as the boys go, they really do take after their father.

Thankful @instasuelos didn't get the memo.

Mark and Kelly—20 years of marriage and one son who’s already in college. Can you believe it? There are even people online offering to date young Michael.

While I feel as though he probably doesn’t need any help getting dates, it’s nice to know that the internet’s here for him. You know, just in case!

Let’s take a look at Ripa and Mark through the years, starting back when they met while playing love interests who eventually marry on “All My Children.” Below is a picture from their characters’ 2000 on-screen wedding.

The pair met on the set of “All My Children” in 1995 and actually married in a “secret” Las Vegas wedding in 1996. They continued to work together on “All My Children” until 2002.

Ripa and Consuelos had their first child, Michael, in 1997.

In 2002, Ripa left “All My Children” to take over full-time hosting duties with Regis Philbin on what was then “Live With Regis and Kathie Lee.” Consuelos has appeared in a number of TV shows and films over the years in addition to hosting two dating shows, “Age of Love” and “Science of Love,” in 2007.

Ripa and Consuelos celebrated 20 years of marriage on May 1, 2016, and that may be their most important accomplishment yet.

Cheers to this lovely family!
