Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos’ eldest son is growing up fast!

Over the weekend, the proud parents celebrated Micheal Conseulos’ 22nd birthday. They both commemorated the milestone with sweet posts on Instagram.

Ripa shared a video slideshow of throwback and current photos with fans, alongside a loving message for her eldest child.

Ripa wrote:

Happy Birthday @michaelconsway ♥️ talented, handsome, smart, kind, and 22. You started this whole thing!

Many fans commented that the 22-year-old shares a striking resemblance to his father and applauded the family’s “genes.” One Instagram user wrote:

I had a hard time telling which was Mark and which was Michael LOL! Happy Birthday!

Another wrote, “He is Mark’s twin.”

Consuelos also shared a post in honor of his son’s big day. The dad, who stars alongside the 22-year-old on CW’s “Riverdale,” posted some throwback photo booth photos of them together.

The father captioned the Instagram post:

Happy 22 to our #1.. @michaelconsway…you’ve led the way…We love you. So proud of you. (Photo cred. Australian photo booth 2002)

The parents have two younger children, 17-year-old Lola, and 16-year-old Joaquin.

Fans also couldn’t stop comparing their youngest son to his famous parents when he celebrated his birthday in February, Dearly reported.

Many social media users couldn’t decide if Joaquin looks more like his mom or dad. One fan wrote:

When he was young, he looked more like you Kelly. Mark features are popping out as he ages. How can he be 16 already? Happy Birthday Joaquin.

Regardless of whom fans think the children look more like, it’s clear they have plenty of love and support from both parents.
