Kelly Ripa’s three children look all grown in a photo she shared for Throwback Thursday.

The “Live! With Kelly and Ryan” host, who is currently on a sunny beach vacation with her family, posted two photos of her kids to her Instagram.

The images showed her husband and three children standing in the same spot eight years apart to highlight how much they’ve changed.

She captioned the post, “#tbt 2011 vs. 2019 Les murs sont devenus plus petits,” which means “the walls have become smaller” in French.

The comments were flooded with fans complimenting Ripa on her beautiful family. Many Instagram users joked that her husband, Mark Consuelos, didn’t appear to age.

One commenter wrote:

The kids changed but Mark still looks the same!!

Another joked:

Has Mark gotten younger?

Ripa took some heat for another vacation picture she posted earlier this week.

The television star posed in a white bikini on the beach a photo that was taken by her 18-year-old daughter, Lola.

Some Instagram users told the mom they didn’t think it was appropriate for her teen daughter to photograph her in a bathing suit, Dearly reported.

One commenter wrote:

It looks like she gave photo props to Lola. So now we are outsourcing our kids to take our photos to post on Instagram?

However, many jumped in to defend the 48-year-old. One fan wrote:

I think it’s fantastic that Kelly’s daughter is the one that took the picture and who posted it! Be proud Kelly be proud!!!

Regardless of the backlash, it seems Ripa and her family are still enjoying their time in the sun.
