Usually getting on People's Sexiest Man Alive list is a honor — unless your mom is Kelly Ripa. Then we can only imagine that things are a little bit awkward. Well that's exactly what happened to poor Michael Consuelos. And seeing his mom's reaction on Kelly and Ryan Live! has people online in stitches.
We guess it was just a little hard for the 52-year-old talkshow host and mom to take that her 25-year-old son is now a sex symbol. But it seems like Ripa had no clue that Michael had made the magazine's "Next Gen" list before an episode of her show on November 9, ET Canada reports.
"Are you kidding me?!" she told her co-host Ryan Seacrest, who informed her that Michael was in the magazine live on air. "Give me this."
Hilariously, ET reports that Ripa started flipping through the accompanying article. "You'd think he would tell us so we could pick up a couple of copies for the grandparents," she joked.
The spread featured Michael with a side-by-side throwback pic of his dad, Mark Consuelos. And Ripa teased some of the juicy tidbits he shared in the feature.
"'Michael respects his father's work ethic.' Yeah, he worked one day last week," she teased.
"It's funny, I forget that they look alike until I see photos of them like that. It's crazy, right?" she added — which duh, how could anyone forget!
Of course, the mom was sort of thrown off with the whole people-think-my-son-is-hot thing. But we're sure that she's proud of all her son's accomplishments — right?
"I always considered you just a handsome, lovely fellow, conscientious, hard-working, diligent, respectful," she said. "I had no idea that you were considered sexy. I always found his father to be sexy," she added.
To be honest, we don't know how we would react if we were in Ripa's shoes, but we think she probably handled it as best as she could.
