Kelly Ripa's son, Michael, was dreaming of warmer weather on Thursday when he took to Instagram with a snapshot from a beachside vacation gone by

The 25-year-old filmmaker was feeling the chill in New York, as he reminisced about a recent tropical getaway - only he left some fans confused

The image shared by Michael showed a figure in the distance wearing an orange sarong and walking on the white sandy shoreline, alongside crystal blue waters.

One fan asked: "Did someone forget to tell you it was time to leave?" as they thought he was still there and another got totally confused with who the person was in the image and wrote: "Did the topless lady give you photo approval?"

While a good time was had by all, Mark got over excited during the game at one point, and lifted Kelly up into the air, resulting in injury and a cracked rib. 

"Something definitely happened to my rib", the former Hope and Faith actress said. Luckily, the injury didn't cause too much damage to Kelly, and she was her usual cheerful self in the first show of the week.
