But then, Ripa caught her fans by surprise when she posted the “Happy Holidays” greeting that featured Consuelos’ TV brood instead of the real one. In the pic, the 47-year-old is seen with actresses Marisol Nichols and Camila Mendes who play his family in Riverdale.

Why would she do that?

Don’t worry, there’s nothing wrong going on between the spouses, as Ripa is known for her pranks and jokes. As she explained in the caption:

Tired of fighting with the kids over the holiday card photo? Problem solved!

But she also urged her followers to swipe to the next image where they can see the real Ripa-Consuelos clan, including their 3 children, Michael, Lola, and Joaquin.

What was Consuelos’ reaction?
