One the reasons that fans follow Kelly Ripa on Instagram is because she loves to share photos of her beautiful family. Yesterday was no exception.

When it comes to sharing old photos of her family, Kelly Ripa is a seasoned pro. In September, the Inquisitr reported that the mother of three shared a series of throwback photos to honor her mother-in-law on her birthday. Then in October, the Inquisitr shared a story on another throwback photo of Kelly and her son Joaquin snuggled up after a swim.

And most recently, the Inquisitr reported that the Live With Kelly and Ryan host took to Instagram over Thanksgiving to share yet another throwback picture of herself and Mark Consuelos’ side of the family together in 2013.

And this time, Ripa took another young photo of her youngest son Joaquin and shared it on her Instagram page for all of her fans to see. Yesterday, the 46-year-old posted an up-close and personal of her now 16-year-old son Joaquin from 2007.

In the older photo, Joaquin is seen cocking his head to the side and making a funny face. His hair is curled and wet and it appears that he just finished up a swim session. Not surprisingly, Ripa had a clever caption for the picture.

“2007 The year Joaquin Consuelos invented the front side eye.”
