Kelly Ripa is a doting mom to three grown-up children, and just like all parents - she's not afraid to embarrass them every now and then!

On Monday, the Live star's oldest child, Michael Consuelos, 25, took to Instagram to share a photo of himself posing on the beach. He wrote alongside it: "100% not posing. Didn't even know there was a camera there."

Kelly was quick to respond to his picture with a witty remark, writing: "A very candid not at all posed pic. I approve."

Though he did have his parents help when it came to casting, he maintained that's about as hands-on as they were, admitting that they are in no way "momagers."

He said: "They weren't micromanaging everything, they trusted my ability to deliver what they wanted for the character. I'm very proud of it," adding that: "I'm proud that I got to work with them. Hopefully again sometime... it was a real treat."

Michael also previously starred alongside his father in Riverdale, where he played the younger version of Mark's character, Hiram Lodge.
