Kelly Ripa proudly shared a photo of his son, Michael in commemoration of his upcoming role on Riverdale, the famous CW television show.

The star of Live with Kelly and Ryan couldn't help but gush over her son's first big part in the entertainment industry on Saturday, August 11, 2018, which may be the start of a successful career.

Ripa took to her Instagram to show her friends and followers how handsome and grown-up Michael is, but she also jokingly demanded a share of his profits from now on.

The 47-year-old said that, as Michael'ls fiduciaries, her and Mark Consuelos, her husband and Michael's father, they were entitled to '10% of all his future earnings.'

But Ripa wasn't the only one showing her appreciating for the young actor. Consuelos also shared a photo on his Instagram, in which he can be seen posing for the camera with Michael.

"Bucket list moment for Mom and Dad. Congrats to my son Michael on being cast as the younger (and much better and [sic] handsomer) Hiram. We are so proud. Love you MJC"

21-year-old Michael is still in college and is currently studying at New York University.  He will be appearing in CW's soapy take on the Archie comics, Riverdale, as young Hiram Lodge.

Curiously, he will be playing the same character that his father plays on the show, the famous mobster and scheming father of Veronic Lodge.

Michael will only appear in a flashback episode, starring alongside KJ Apa and Lili Reinhart, who will also take on the roles of their on-screen parents.

Aside from Michael, Ripa and Consuelos, who have been married since 1996, are also parents to 15-year-old Joaquin and 17-year-old Lola, but whether they will take on acting as well is yet to be revealed.
