But while this might be embarrassing for many children, it turns out that eldest son Michael Consuelos doesn't actually mind them. Speaking to People as they marked their Sexiest Man Alive issue, the budding actor said: "I've always kind of maintained that my parents are cooler than me, so they don't really embarrass me."

He also shared that he saw his dad's shirtless photos as a form of "motivation" noting that both the Riverdale star and younger brother Joaquin were both "really strong" and he wanted to "catch up".

When asked to name a book he had recently enjoyed, he cheekily responded: "Read Live Wire by Kelly Ripa. It's out now. You're welcome, Mom!"
