Kelly Ripa's fans couldn't believe that her daughter Lola had let her share pictures of her face on social media. This was the first new photo Ripa shared of Lola since June 27.
The "Live with Kelly and Ryan" host took to Instagram recently to share photographs of her 18-year-old. She captioned the adorable snaps, "Middle child vibes," adding the hashtag "favorite daughter."
"[Lola called me and was] like, 'You take it down right now! My friends follow you for some reason and they will see this!'"
In the two new images, Lola is seen wearing a green shirt while hanging out on the family's backyard porch.
The post has amassed over 150,000 likes as of this writing. It likewise earned several remarks from Ripa's fans.
One person wrote, "I can't believe she let you post that beautiful face."
"She's stunning!!! Soo funny how she is [your] features and [your] husbands coloring," added another.
"She hit the genetic jackpot," commented another user. "You and Mark probably should have had a few more just to populate the world with more beautiful people."
"She has the best skin color. Best of both worlds," someone else wrote.
Lola is the only daughter of Ripa and husband Mark Consuelos. The beloved pair, who tied the knot in 1996, are also parents to sons Michael, 22, and Joaquin, 16.
Lola rarely shows up on her mom's Instagram page. The recent post was her first appearance since June 27, when Ripa posted a photo of herself with her family on vacation.
In a 2017 interview with "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon," Ripa revealed that Lola didn't let her post her photos on social media.
"[Lola called me and was] like, 'You take it down right now! My friends follow you for some reason and they will see this!'" she said.
Ripa, who also has several feature films to her credit, eventually removed all traces of it from her Instagram page.
