A post shared by Kelly Ripa (@kellyripa)

Kelly shared a series of throwback photos to show how much Joaquin has changed 

"When you see how tiny he is in his first wrestling tournament, he's so skinny and so tiny. And I was like, 'Hopefully this is just a phase.' But compared to now, I just can't really explain it to you," she added.

"You blink, and when parents would say this to me, I would tune them out because they would say, 'You know, the days are long but the years are short.' And I'm sitting there with three kids going, 'The years are long too!' You know what I mean? And then suddenly you blink and they're gone."
