Kelly Ripa posts before-and-after family vacation photos and her kids are so grown up now

Daytime talk show host, Kelly Ripa has shared incredible before-and-after family vacation photos, showing just how much a difference eight years can make.

The 48-year-old posted the pictures on Instagram, captioning them: "#tbt 2011 vs. 2019."

They are truly heartwarming and a testament to why it's so important that we document our lives through photography.

In the pictures, Ripa's husband, Mark Consuelos, and their three kids: Michael, 22, Lola, 18, and Joaquin, 16, can be seen standing in the exact same spot. And, as the below picture demonstrates, there's quite a size difference between then and now.

These family snaps were taken in France where they currently on vacation. The exact location, however, is unknown.

The pictures were posted to mark the photosharing app's Throwback Thursday - a hashtag that encourages users to post old photographs.

Consuelos posted another picture of the family to Instagram on his account captioned, "Entourage...(said w/ French accent)". The man in the middle of this picture is believed to be Lola's boyfriend.

Fox News has speculated that the family are celebrating the 18-year-old's high school graduation.

She is set to attend New York University this fall, which, coincidentally, is the school her brother attends.

In May of this year, Lola attended her prom and this was another family moment Ripa shared on social media:

Ripa recently hit the headlines after she admitted that her daughter Lola walked in on her and her husband having sex on an episode of  'Live with Kelly and Ryan', which she hosted with Consuelos. The incident took place on Lola's birthday.

Ripa reportedly made eye contact with her daughter mid-act before Lola understandably fled the room.

"Thanks for ruining my birthday," Lola said afterward. "And thanks for ruining my life. I used to see in color, and now everything is gray!"
