Kelly Ripa recently celebrated Mark Consuelos returning home. He spent months away from her as he filmed for Riverdale in Canada. Now, the Live! With Kelly and Ryan star shared some throwback photos of herself and Mark. Fans adore throwback photos, so two at once seemed like a special treat.
Kelly Ripa remembers Christmas past in throwback photos
Taking to Instagram on Friday, December 11, Kelly posted up a photo of herself. With her hair in cute pig-tails, she sat in front of a long-past Christmas tree. She wore green pants, sneakers and a high-collared sweater in white. The little girl smiled so sweetly. Clearly, she loved her childhood Christmas celebrations. But, she didn’t stop there. She shared a second photo of her husband Mark Consuelos.
Kelly Ripa talked about Mark in her caption as well. In the photo showing Mark, a small boy sat atop a rocking horse in front of the family Christmas tree. So cute, he wore a white onesie. His big smile said it all. No doubt, his mom and dad cherished that photo for many years. Naturally, fans reacted to the cutie-pie Christmas kids. Super-popular, it seems that no matter what Mark or Kelly post, thousands of fans eagerly await their updates.
Fans thrilled for Kelly and Mark
We reported that when Mark returned home, Kelly Ripa shared a photo of the family enjoying a reunion meal. In fact, we noted that some fans seemed almost as happy as Kelly that Mark finally returned home. With Mark home, it seems like Kelly now stops stressing about missing him. So, she took the time to ferret out her throwback photos. Her caption read, “A holiday story. Jersey 1974 Vs. Sardinia 1972. The little girl holding her shoe grew up to marry the little boy riding his horse. ♥️🎄🎅🏽.”
Fans of Kelly Ripa couldn’t help but comment on the adorable photos. One Live! With Kelly and Ryan fan noted, “You look like Buffy from Family Affair! I got the same horse for Christmas and it was called Tony the Pony.” Then, another fan said, “Your Michael looks more like Mark’s brother 😲.” In fact, other fans noticed that as well. And, even more of them remember getting that exact same rocking horse as little kids.
Why do people love throwback photos so much?
Almost every throwback photo that celebs post invites participation by fans. Why is this? Well, you might notice that people often talk about having the same dress, or toy. Or, they recall the same places their favorite stars visited as kids. In other words, it brings nostalgia to fans. My Jewishlearning.com is just one of many sites that discuss throwback photos and nostalgia.
While Kelly Ripa obviously enjoys her nostalgic moment, her fans who relate to the pictures also do. The website explains, “Nostalgia…helps us connect to ourselves and to others.” Furthermore, throwback photos that bring nostalgia help to “counteract loneliness, boredom and anxiety.” So hopefully, Kelly keeps on posting those adorable throwback photos.
