Though Beliebers still ship him with Selena Gomez, the singer admitted he’s got the hots for the Live! with Kelly and Michael host on Instagram – just in time for #WomanCrushWednesday.
“Wow Kelly makes me feel some type of way,” he captioned a black-and-white shot of Ripa posing in lacy lingerie Tuesday, along with the hashtah “#bigcrush.”
He added that he means “no disrespect” to her husband. Ripa, 44, has been married to hunky actor Mark Consuelos since 1996, and they have three kids together.
Ripa addressed the flattery on her show Wednesday after some good-natured ribbing from co-host Michael Strahan.
“I believe – and Justin, I love you, you know that I’ve taken my daughter to 400 Justin Bieber concerts – I do believe this is a cry for help,” she joked.
The Biebs will just have to make someone else his baby, baby, baby, oh.
