Talk show host Kelly Ripa thrilled her Instagram followers with her latest throwback Thursday share, which featured an absolutely precious video of her and daughter, Lola Consuelos, whom she shares with her husband, Mark Consuelos.
Kelly took to Instagram to share the clip, which she said was from 2004 and possibly for a shoot she for Glamour. The Live With Kelly and Ryan co-host noted that Lola, who is now 18, had okayed the repost. In the video, Madonna’s hit song “Vogue” played as mother and daughter struck numerous poses against a white and black background as a photographer snapped photos.
In the clip, Lola and Kelly wore flattering deep red dresses. Kelly’s was a halter style with a thin tie around her neck while Lola’s was a little-girl scoop neck with a tea-length skirt and a matching sash that tied in the back. Kelly’s signature blond hair hung in loose curls around her face and down her back while Lola’s gorgeous brunette hair received treatment with a curling iron at one point in the video. The young girl’s hair blew in a breeze created by a fan at the photo shoot.
The video contained many candid mother/daughter moments between the two, and at some points, Lola sat atop her mom’s shoulders and made silly faces while cameras flashed. At another point, she reached out and squished her mother’s face with her little hands. The two also flashed big smiles, Eskimo-kissed, and did several other poses during the throwback shoot.
The former soap star’s fans on the popular social media platform loved the flashback post. In just two hours, it had been viewed nearly 240,000 times, and more than 32,000 Instagram users hit the “like” button. Also, over 1,000 followers took the time to drop uplifting comments for Kelly and Lola in the reply section.
“It freaks me out how that feels like only a few years ago,” wrote one follower, who also included a red heart emoji.
“You’re so lucky to have this! Her hands on your face, the sweetest,” a second fan gushed, including an OK emoji.
“So frickin’ cute. I miss my littles. I love my adults, but I miss my squishy, lovey littles,” reminisced one momma.
“So precious. You don’t look any different today as you did then,” a fourth fan declared.
The Inquisitr previously reported that Lola brought Kelly to tears with a sweet throwback video of her own earlier this month. In her caption, the teenager called Kelly “mommy.”
