Kelly Ripa shared a glorious throwback photo to Instagram featuring her with her "favorite dance partner." She tagged the snap as being taken in the year 2000. The Live with Kelly and Ryan host posted the pic of her cradling her oldest son, Michael, at what appeared to be a wedding. In the snap, Kelly was 30 years old and Michael was 3.
She smiled for the camera, holding a tiny bouquet of pink and white flowers tied together with a white satin ribbon in her right hand and her son cradled in her left arm.
Kelly wore a lovely dark dress with thin straps and a straight neckline featuring a slight dip in the center. On her neck was a thin glittery chain.
Her son wore a white dress shirt, tie, and pants.
This was around the time when Kelly and husband Mark Consuelos were still appearing on the soap opera All My Children as their on-screen counterparts Hayley and Mateo. One year later, she would land the job that would ultimately change her life and bring her to an even wider audience when she was hired to co-host Live alongside the late Regis Philbin.
