Kelly Ripa’s fans are in a hot debate after the television star shared a bikini photo taken by her daughter.

The 48-year-old mother of three shared the post on Tuesday. She appeared to be on a beach vacation with her family when the photo was taken.

Ripa captioned the image, “Sous le soleil avec #papa.” She gave photo credit to her daughter, 18-year-old Lola Consuelos.

While many fans complimented Ripa on her fit physique, others were upset with Ripa’s choice of photographer.

Some Instagram users stated that they didn’t like that her child was the one to take the bikini photo. One critic 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 of Ripa’s fans were quick to jump to the mom’s defense. A commenter 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!!!

Another said:

I love seeing how Lola sees her mommy!!!
