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.

Kelly Ripa's daughter Lola approved a particular childhood picture for her famous mum to post

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.
