Kelly Ripa is Little Miss Popular in her skimpy swimwear, wading through a giant ocean storm and totally ignoring it. The 50-year-old talk show queen today thrilled her 2.9 million Instagram followers with a little throwback action, taking fans back to 2018 and showing the killer body. Kelly, who is now getting called "Hurricane Kelly" in the comments section, was all wit and legs, and the swimsuit snap even caught the eye of 46-year-old Live! co-host Ryan Seacrest. Check it out below.

'Ignores Approaching Storm'

Scroll for the photo, one that seemed taken by Kelly's 1996-married husband Mark Consuelos, who was tagged in the photo. The snap, definitely dramatic, showed the popular blonde shot far out and exiting an ocean just as the heavens were about to break.

Kelly, in a tight and shorts-style swimsuit, was looking behind her while backed by massive heavy gray clouds, and the mom of three definitely seemed to be, as she put it, ignoring the situation. The snap showed Ripa holding shades, which clearly she did not need.

The gorgeous shot came with Kelly writing: "#tbt 2018 - ignores approaching storm #bahamas," with Kelly also throwing out actor Mark's Instagram handle. 

"Of course you did.You are a storm yourself" currently tops comments, and that wasn't the only thing getting remarked on. Kelly, who manages to turn heads in whatever she wears, quickly had fans picking up on the long swimsuit.

"Gorgeous!... I have a question, with a long torso do you have trouble finding one piece suits?! If so, do you have a go to shop?!" one asked. See more photos after the shot!

'Peter Pan' Body

Kelly, also told she was looking "fabulous," has been making headlines both for defying her age at 50 and, shorty before hitting the big FIVE-OH, likening her body to a "Peter Pan" one. In 2019, the pint-sized star opened up to The Cut, stating:

"I was talking to a cardiologist and he said to make sure your heart beats out of your chest every day. The more you exercise, the healthier it is. And I can be honest: My body looks like Peter Pan no matter what I do." More below.

Fans Love Her

Kelly has been getting the thumbs-up from fans since returning from a week "off" the series she's hosted since 2001. Kelly and Ryan are now joined by new announcer Deja Vu, with Kelly just today suggesting the media face should change the way the two-some are introduced.

Kelly continues to be popular outside of the show, with the fascination over her marriage to 50-year-old Mark and the couple's three kids (Michael, Joaquin, and Lola) seemingly never-ending. Lola, however, is not a fan of the "thirst trap" photos Kelly posts of husband Mark.
