In his own tribute pos, Consuelos thanked his father Saul for teaching him the ropes when it comes to being a dad.
"Happy Father’s Day dad.. I learned it from you. ♥️🇲🇽♥️," he wrote.
Getting into the Father's Day spirit a few days early, on Thursday, Ripa shared a heartwarming photo of Consuelos, 49, holding their daughter, Lola, when she was a newborn.
"#tbt father day 2001 featuring a newcomer on the scene @theyoungestyung ♥️♥️,"she captioned the snapshot.
The couple and their children have been quarantining together in the Caribbean amid the coronavirus pandemic.
The family of five were on a trip together when ABC instructed them to shelter in place, a source previously told PEOPLE.
“The family was on a trip in the Caribbean when told to shelter in place and decided to stay put,” the source said.
"We had planned a trip for our family, and it was supposed to be our entire family of course," said Ripa, according to a source at a virtual town hall with ABC employees moderated by Sandy Kenyon. "And we arrive and three days later, the entire world changed, really. I mean, everything shut down; the government shut down; our country shut down. I hate to use the word stuck, but we were. We decided to stay where we were."
Ripa and Conseulos got married on May 1, 1996, eloping in Las Vegas after meeting two years earlier when he screen-tested for All My Children.

At the time, Ripa was playing Hayley Vaughan on the ABC soap opera. Conseulos was auditioning for Mateo Santos, Haley’s love interest.
Back in 2018, Ripa said that she knew Consuelos was “the one” the second she saw a photo of him.
“I was not a hopeless romantic," she told Bruce Bozzi on his SiriusXM radio show. "I never thought about getting married, it never occurred to me that I would grow old with someone. I just thought I would be living my single girl life in the city and sort of like moving. … I had no responsibilities and I was earning a good living on this soap opera … [But] when I saw him, the photograph of him, I saw my entire future with him flash before — like I saw it,” said Ripa. “And I [didn’t] believe in any of that and now I do because of that moment.”
