Kelly Ripa well and truly delivered today, sharing a massive batch of photos for her 2.9 million Instagram followers - all came in honor of Live! With Kelly and Ryan producer Michael Gelman celebrating his birthday. On Wednesday, the 50-year-old talk show queen uploaded a series of throwbacks to mark Gelman turning 60, and the snaps weren't without action as Kelly was seen in everything from a bouffant '60s wig getup to a joint and very flexible stretch with the man behind the cameras.

Scroll for the photos. Kelly, herself making birthday headlines last fall as she rung in the big FIVE-OH, was today shouting out a man ten years her senior. The former All My Children actress opened with a Halloween throwback of the syndicated talk show's producer - a quick swipe to the right, meanwhile, showed Kelly and a gal pal sandwiched by Michael and it was massive hair and tight pants here as Kelly showed off her insanely-toned arms.

Further photos included 46-year-old co-host Ryan Seacrest. Then came the big stretch.

The flexible snap, coming from a former ballerina, showed Kelly and Michael near white railings and water, with the very bendy photo seeing both with out-stretched legs, both arms out, and creating V-shapes with their limbs.

Kelly, who wore a white zip-up co-ord with matching pants, had added in multicolor rainbow heart emoji between both her legs and Michael's - closing the post, the photo reminded fans that Kelly comes mega flexible. It also showed off the star's signature sense of humor. Swipe below for the gallery - scroll for more photos.

Taking to her caption, Kelly wrote: "Happy milestone birthday @gelmanlive 🥳🥳🎉🎉(objects are younger than they may appear)."

Gelman, seemingly keeping tabs on the post, quickly replied: "Just when I thought I was looking good for my age."

Kelly is, of course, still topping lists of age-defying celebrities - oh, and ones who'll bend over in swimwear for cheeky poolside shots with 50-year-old husband Mark Consuelos. Kelly and the Riverdale actor are, this year, celebrating 25 years of marriage, although they act like teenagers on Instagram.

Just this week, Kelly stunned fans with her super-slender legs and slim waist while in a green romper actually gifted to her by Bravo face Andy Cohen. Shot indoors and in The Hamptons as she reached down towards dog Lena, Kelly wrote:

"An @instasuelos pic of me showing off this fab capsule collection from @bravoandy and @santandabel swipe to see @lizapersky1 model it better. We are swaddled in terry cloth luxury! Thank you! 💚💚💚💚💚💚"

Kelly has been absent on Live! during her Hamptons break, but fill-in Maria Menounos has proven popular as a replacement.
