Mark Consuelos & Kelly Ripa React to Fan's Comment About Him Stuffing His Pants in Halloween Photo
"Full disclosure, I believe that’s definitely a shadow that’s causing that bulging effect," the Riverdale actor said
After posting a series of Halloween-themed photos taken of her family throughout the years to Instagram on Thursday, the 50-year-old Live with Kelly and Ryan host playfully teased fans who shared thoughts about Mark's body in one image.
Featured as the last of 10 in the slideshow of photos, the shot shows the Riverdale star, 49, wearing a form-fitting motorcycle cop uniform beside his friend, Bruce Bozzi, that was meant to resemble the outfits worn by the main characters on the TV show CHiPS.
Fans wrote in the comment section of Ripa's post, where they took notice of Mark's private area, as one user joked, "Mark is packing a gun in his cop uniform" while another added, "Your husband stuffed his pants."
Observing the conversation, Mark wrote in the comments, "Full disclosure, I believe that’s definitely a shadow that’s causing that bulging effect," before Ripa chimed in with her own response: "Ummmmm baby are you seeing shadows?"
"Pretty sure," Mark replied back.
The longtime couple, who married in May 1996, has always been open on social media — much to the dismay of their daughter, Lola Consuelos.
While speaking to PEOPLE earlier this year, the 19-year-old daughter of the former All My Children costars said that she simply ignores the "thirst trap" photos of her dad, teasing that the posts of him are "disgusting."

Lola also joked about her mom's occasional "belfie" — or "butt selfie" — which she described as "ridiculous."
"That was a good [one]," Ripa replied back, defending her previous booty snapshots.

Last month, Lola continued on her quest to alleviate her social media feed from embarrassing photos of her parents when she asked her mom not to post any nude photos like Gwyneth Paltrow did to celebrate turning 48.
Ripa shared a screenshot of "text conversations with my daughter" on her Instagram feed after Lola texted her a PEOPLE article about how Paltrow's daughter Apple Martin reacted to her mom's nude birthday pic.
"You've been warned," Lola simply wrote to her mom.
Ripa replied to her daughter with a series of six short text messages. "Oh lord. Honey. Do u what u want. Just know that I have a birthday also and an Instagram," the talk show host said.
