Kelly Ripa enjoyed some quality time off work during Spring Break, spending it with her husband Mark Consuelos and their three children.
The Live with Kelly and Ryan star's kids have grown up in the public eye and have appeared on the ABC morning show over the years, but now that they are older they prefer to stay out of the spotlight – especially her daughter Lola.
The doting mum wanted to mark her family's Easter celebrations on social media on Sunday, but told her Instagram followers that she was sharing a throwback picture of her kids instead, as it was the photo that Lola had approved.

She wrote: "Happy Easter from the year 2012 because Lola approved this photo."
In the picture, Lola and her brothers Michael and Joaquin were posing in the kitchen at their family home in New York, surrounded by extravagant chocolate eggs.

Fans were quick to react to the post, with one writing: "I love how prescriptive Lola is. She is probably going to run a large corporation one day," while another wrote: "My 14-year-old daughter is exactly the same! I can't post anything of her without her approval."
A third added: "Thank you Lola for approving, super cute!"
Lola isn't the only one who prefers to keep a low profile. In an interview with Glamour magazine recently, Kelly opened up about her son Michael's desire to stay out of the spotlight when he was younger.
She said: "I was not allowed to discuss anything. I could not talk about his life, his grades, even though they were great.

"I couldn't talk about school. I wasn't allowed to show his prom picture on TV, even though I may have, as long as I got the girl's permission from her parents."
The doting parent added that she would never discuss any of her children without their permission.

"It would be very unfair to use my bullhorn to discuss somebody that did not want to be discussed. I'm always very mindful of that being the boundary," she said.
The former All My Children star added that her family had been approached on a number of occasions to do a reality show, but revealed that it was something she would never do.
