Kelly Ripa is pulling a Benjamin Button as she drops surprise vacation photos from her recent Italy travels. The talk show host, who made October 2020 headlines for celebrating her 50th birthday, looked insanely youthful in her weekend Instagram share, one that came as a family deal and featuring husband Mark Consuelos, plus the 1996-married couple’s kids Michael, Joaquin and Lola.
Posting for her 2.9 million followers on Saturday, the Live! With Kelly and Ryan host showed off a beyond-gorgeous and floaty white dress look – the summery color choice was also seen on 20-year-old daughter Lola Grace as photos showed everyone on sun-drenched steps or poolside.
Kelly Ripa turns back the clock
See the photos below. Kelly is fresh from having her photos big-time scrutinized – ahead of the weekend, the former sitcom star had fans convinced she only has one foot after a group photo showed the blonde – per her clap-back – crossing her feet.
Definitely showing two feet today, plus her killer legs, the mom of three opened with a gorgeous group shot amid cascading flowers and white stone. Kelly was stunning the camera in a below-the-knee and slightly flared white dress, one showing the former ballerina’s tiny waist as she added height to her frame in nude wedge heels.
A quick swipe to the right brought in 50-year-old husband Mark, with subsequent snaps seeing the star’s nearest and dearest all in a row and by a swish outdoor pool.
“Two weeks ago in paradise, famiglia edition,” Kelly wrote. Ripa is three-quarters Italian, with her recent travels coming as a delayed celebration in honor of 24-year-old son Michael’s college graduation last year. Swipe below for the gallery.
A vision in white
Kelly first made headlines for the vacation five days ago as she shared throwbacks, plus a snap from Italy. Explaining that the pandemic had postponed her initial plans, she wrote:
"“Last year’s graduation trip for our oldest son and niece was delayed long enough to become a graduation trip for the family newborns as well.”"
Kelly, who isn’t above replying to her followers, was quick to spot a fan comment today. The user said they “had to ask because I have such a hard time finding stylish/comfortable summer wedges…are those comfy?” Kelly said: “They are. I can’t believe it. They are @lillypulitzer.”
As to her super-youthful looks, Kelly has spoken out. In January 2019, she told The Cut she has a body like “Peter Pan,” no matter what she does.
