Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos' son Michael has shared a throwback to a major moment in his career - his first acting project alongside his father!

Taking to his Instagram account, the 25-year-old actor shared a behind-the-scenes snap from his time on Riverdale, playing a younger version of his father's character, Hiram Lodge. 

Sharing a snap of his father lying on a mortuary slab while Michael chats to show producer James DeWille, he wrote in the caption: "Fond memories with dad."

Both Kelly and Michael took to the comments section, each dropping a string of crying with laughter emojis. Michael then responded to his mom's reply, admitting: "@kellyripa I was scared I was gonna have a hard time with that scene. Then he started snoring."

Just like his parents, Michael is carving out a career on-screen. Kelly - who is also a mom to Lola, 21, and Joaquin, 19 - has previously spoken about the importance of her three children paving their own way in the working world.

"I'm used to getting a lot of slack because people love to have fake outrage over something they didn't see. They only read a headline and wag their tired fingers."

She went on to say: "I didn't grow up privileged and neither did @instasuelos. We work and we expect our kids to as well. And the fact that a pack of fools want to [expletive] about that, I say let em."
