Kelly Ripa works hard to maintain her figure - and it shows!

The Live with Kelly and Ryan host stunned fans when she shared a throwback picture of herself in a red bikini to Instagram earlier this summer. 

Kelly, 49, looked sensational as she stood in the ocean with her family by her side, and her followers couldn’t wait to comment on her incredible physique.

“You inspire me to get off the couch. Those abs," wrote one, while others simply stated: "Abs!!!!!”

WATCH: Kelly Ripa as you've never seen her before 

The snapshot - which also featured her husband, Mark Consuelos, 49, their three children Joaquin, 17, Lola, 19, and Michael, 23, and Mark’s parents - was taken in 2008, but Kelly has barely changed. 

She puts this down to her passion for working out and her clean daily diet too. 

Kelly told People magazine that she’s pretty hard on herself when it comes to caring for her body. 

"So much of my life has been devoted to having the perfect diet, having excellent nutrition, having a fitness routine I can get behind and practice every day, and I do, I exercise seven days a week,” she said. “I rarely have a cheat day, diet-wise."

Kelly's hard work pays off 

Kelly also quit alcohol in 2017 when she took a sober month along with her friends and never went back. 

However, the COVID-19 lockdown has left her a little less strict about her diet. 

In an interview on Jimmy Kimmel Live in July, she joked: "I eat solid food. I am not on an all-liquid diet, I’m on an all-carbohydrate diet."

Kelly has been presenting her show during the coronavirus pandemic from her sprawling Hamptons home, where her family have made some appearances on the show too.

Their teenage daughter, Lola, even revealed what isolating with her family is really like: "It’s honestly not as bad as I thought," she said. "I think we are really lucky to be together at home, all of us. A lot more family time, which is great. My time is taken up by doing homework, a lot of Netflix, a lot of YouTube."
