Thursdays are for throwbacks and actress, Kelly Ripa, was definitely in the mood for it. The actress shared a photo of her last son, Joaquin's first day of school back in 2006. 

Kelly Ripa is a mother of three lovely children, son, Michael Joseph, 22, daughter, Lola Grace, 18, and son, Joaquin Antonio, 16. Her children may be grown up now, but not long ago they took their first steps in life. 


Kelly recalled a bit of those firsts' when she posted a throwback picture of her lastborn son Joaquin on his first day in school on her Instagram page.


The 48-year-old talk show host posted a pic of a then three-year-old Joaquin on his first day of school. The little Joaquin didn't look so pleased to be going to school and posed with a bit of frown and pout on his face. 


In her caption, Kelly explained that the picture was taken in 2016 on Joaquin's very first day of school ever, and added that she couldn't say he looked thrilled about it. 

Some of her followers also commented on the post, adding their funny interpretation of young Joaquin's look, and his cuteness. 


Kelly and her husband, actor, Mark Consuelos, were caught in a mixture of feelings when they dropped their daughter, Lola off at College. Kelly and Mark posted a photo of the special moment, which showed the former kissing her daughter goodbye.



In her caption to the post, Kelly said: "the next is getting roomy" in reference to the fact that two of her three children are now in College, leaving the house almost empty, with Joaquin, the only child at home.

In his caption, Mark wrote "2 down… 1 to go," also buttressing on that fact. Lola joins her brother, Michael in attending the New York University. She will be studying at the University's Clive Davis Institute of Recorded Music, while her brother is studying Film.


Both parents will take solace in the fact that the university is not so far from their home. They still have Joaquin with them but are already contemplating what they would also do when he leaves the house for College. 

They may be wishing they had more children, something Kelly admitted she regrets not doing while speaking with Ryan Seacrest during an episode of "Live with Kelly and Ryan."
