Kelly Ripa's oldest son, Michael, has spent many days sunning himself by the sea during dreamy family holidays, but it turns out it's not always so relaxing for the rising star. 

The actor took to Instagram to update his fans recently with a snapshot of himself enjoying a cocktail on a luxury-looking yacht.

He looked at ease wearing sunglasses and basking in the sunshine, but his caption said: "I’m actually pretty scared of the ocean."

Fans asked if it was the sharks he was scared of and commented: "Why? What frightens you?" and wondered why he'd chosen to jump on a boat when the water worries him. 

One fan caused a stir when they confused him for his lookalike father, Mark Consuelos, and wrote: "You and Kelly have Beautiful child and A Beautiful Life too," before another of Michael's social media followers cleared up the situation by adding: "That’s not Mark that is Kelly and Marks eldest son Michael."
