The old picture showed the very handsome couple, both of whom possessed many of the same features that Kelly has.

Kelly celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary with the post, writing: "Happy 60th anniversary to Joe and Essie Ripa, aka Dad and Mom! (I thought it was 60 last year if I'm being honest, but they don't have Insta so it's fine)"
