On Wednesday, Kelly Ripa and her husband Mark Consuelos took to social media to celebrate their youngest son, Joaquin, who turned 18.


Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos celebrated the 18th birthday of their youngest son, Joaquin, in grand style on their respective Instagram pages.

In the post's caption, Ripa wrote, "Happy birthday to the light of our lives!" and added that the 18-year-old fills every day with joy and makes everything better. She concluded her caption by expressing love for him.

In Consuelos' post, he shared a gallery of pictures of his son, including one that showed both of them posing topless and smiling. In his caption, the proud father wrote:

"Happy 18th Birthday Quino! @kellyripa our little guy is all grown up. We love you Joaquin!"


Joaquin is the youngest of Ripa and Consuelo's three children. Their other kids are daughter Lola, 19, and 23-year-old son, Michael. Joaquin turning 18 means all Ripa and Consuelo's kids are now adults.

Many of the adorable couple's fans commented on their posts, wishing Joaquin a happy birthday and expressing pleasure at how much he has grown.

Joaquin overcame the "misunderstood learning difference" with hard work, determination, and remediation


Besides advancing in age, Joaquin is also moving to a new phase in his life. Earlier in the month, his mom revealed that he is trying to decide on a college and has many options.

That Joaquin is even able to attend college is something that his parents are most proud and emotional about, given that he has dyslexia and dysgraphia.


During an appearance on "Live with Kelly and Ryan," Ripa revealed her husband FaceTimed her one night and was emotional about Joaquin going to college as he never thought he would do so because of his dyslexia and dysgraphia.

However, as Ripa narrated, Joaquin overcame the "misunderstood learning difference" with hard work, determination, and remediation. She added that dyslexia and dysgraphia have been blessings for their family.

With her children growing older, Ripa can only look back to when they were little kids and recall the fond memories they shared. Last month, she did that last month when she shared throwback pictures of her, Consuelos, Michael, and Lola.


One of the pictures showed Consuelos holding up Lola, who was clad in her diapers, as they played in the pool. Another snap showed Ripa holding Lola, who was wearing a pink dress, while Michael looked at them.

The adorable family will have many more memorable moments to share in the years to come, and hopefully, they will be filled with more joy and happiness.
