They opened up about their family dynamics, with Kelly asking, "Do you think dad and I will be able to handle it when you kids are out of the house?" 

Michael responded with, "She's already adopted a dog, you've been preparing for an empty nest, I think you'll be fine."

"I love my kids, and I am very attached to them. But Lena and I are codependent, I'd let her eat the food out of my mouth."

They also talked about their extended family vacation in Italy that they had recently returned from, and Ryan elaborated on the conversation by asking Michael his thoughts about his parents' social media post, which featured Kelly cheekily giving her husband an eyeful in a swimsuit.

"How do you feel about the pictures of mommy and daddy when she posts them," he asked, which immediately made the younger Consuelos stammer and blush in front of his mother.

"What? What are you talking about?" his mother coyly asked, to which he responded with, "You know the one!" that caused the trio to burst out laughing.
