It’s no secret that TV host Kelly Ripa’s husband, Mark Consuelos, stays healthy. Ripa posted an Instagram picture of her 50-year-old hubby after a workout. Whether the air conditioner gave up, only the couple and maybe the family knows.

Ripa alluded to a “Throwback Thursday” photo of a sweaty Consuelos, and the admirers came out to gawk at the former soap star.

As mild as it was, family members have weighed in at times. Recently, The Daily Mail reported on the couple’s 24-year-old son, Michael

The son was a guest on his mother’s show, Live With Kelly and Ryan, and the subject turned to his parents’ social media activity and photos. One photo was of his parents in bathing suits with Dad staring at Mom’s backside. Co-host Ryan Seacrest asked if he had any comments to share.

“The one recently where it was the…,” Michael added before stopping again.

When Ripa, 50, asked which one he meant, her eldest child replied, “You know what I mean.”

In an interview with People last August, the couple’s middle child, Lola Consuelos, weighed in on mom’s posts. She called one of her mom’s butt selfie (or belfie) photos “ridiculous” and added that sexy photos of her father were “disgusting.”

“That’s disgusting,” the 20-year-old said. “I block that out of my mind. I don’t even know if I follow you on Instagram still! I’m kidding, I would never.”
