Kelly Ripa delighted fans on social media with a sexy throwback photo from 2009 where she flaunted her killer toned dancer legs in patterned shorts. The talk show host thanked the paparazzi photographer who took the snap.
Yesterday, Kelly Ripa took #ThrowbackThursday to another level and made jaws drop with a recent Instagram upload. The talk show host shared a photo from 2009 where she put on an intense leggy display.
The image which was taken by a paparazzi while she was walking on the streets showed Ripa strutting majestically in a pair of grey open-toe heels. She donned a business-casual ensemble consisting of brown patterned shorts and a blazer.

Looking ready to conquer the day, Ripa carried a bottle of water and a black pouch in one hand while the other held together her blazer. Her blonde hair was styled into a ponytail with a fringe and accessorized with white shades.
During her time on “All My Children,” Ripa was known for rocking gigantic hairstyles.
The “All My Children” alum stood in front of a glass window with one leg forward, giving fans a good view of her muscular legs from her dancing days on “Dance Party USA” and “Dancin’ on Air.” The show host wrote in the accompanying caption:
“#tbt 2009 whoever took this. Thank you. I almost forgot. #dance #dancer.”
As expected, fans drooled over her in the comments section, with many of her 2.9 million followers praising her banging body and her legs in particular. It garnered more than 31,000 likes within the first two hours of upload.
Now, 50 years old, the “Live with Kelly and Ryan” host has undergone quite an evolution since her breakout in the ‘70s. The actress and dancer has not always been the fashion icon that she is now.
During her time on “All My Children,” Ripa was known for rocking gigantic hairstyles alongside questionable fashion choices. However, she switched up her look and opted for feminine power suits and elegant gowns in the early 2000s.
Ever since it has been no slowing down for the television personality. Away from her fashion evolution, Ripa has been happily married to actor Mark Consuelos for almost 25 years. The duo met on the set of the ABC show.
He was cast as her lover, and the pair bonded immediately. After a year of dating, Consuelos popped the question, and they tied the knot on May 1, 1996. They are proud parents of three children, Michael, Lola, and Joaquin.
