Kelly Ripa isn’t afraid to flaunt her husband’s assets on social media. For her November 16 “man crush Monday” post, the Live with Kelly and Ryan host, 50, shared a shirtless snap of Mark Conseulos. The photo, which was taken during a prior tropical vacation, showed the Riverdale actor, 49, sunbathing by a pool. He bared his abs and muscular physique in a pair of red swim shorts. A second photo showed the couple cozied up together while Mark enjoyed a cigar.

“Because they’re all throwbacks now, I give you my forever #mcm MC,” Kelly wrote in her caption, tagging her husband in the post. “Take us away baby,” she added in reference to the unnamed location. Mark agreed, writing in the comments, “Let’s go there now!” In true Kelly fashion, the outspoken host replied, “Come get me #daddy.” Additionally, Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star and frequent Live co-host, Lisa Rinna commented with the hashtag, “#FOREVERDADDY.”

Kelly’s latest post comes just a few weeks after she had the internet in a tizzy over Mark’s “bulge.” In honor of Halloween, the mother of three shared a number of throwback photos from years past — one of which showed Mark dressed in character as Erik Estrada‘s Ponch from the 1970s California Highway Patrol drama Chips. He was pictured wearing an evidently tight police uniform, which fans claimed enhanced his unmentionables.

Despite the craze the photo caused, Mark found it funny and shared his thoughts in the comments. “Full disclosure, I believe that’s definitely a shadow that’s causing that bulging effect,” he wrote, before commenting to himself, “pretty sure,” — which left room for interpretation about the size of his…. you know.

Kelly seemed to side with fans who stated that the actor was “packing heat” in the photo, when she replied to her husband: “Ummmmm baby are you seeing shadows?” Kelly even went as far as to inform critics that there weren’t any lighting tricks that took place when the photo was taken — hence, what you see is what you get, apparently. You’ve got to love these two!
