Seacrest joked, “Now, he’s taking after his father, there’s no shirt.” Ripa was still reading the magazine; apparently, Michael didn’t clue his family in on the fact that he would be featured in the magazine.
“You would think he would tell us,”She said this while still reading the magazine article about her son. “So we could pick up a couple of copies for the grandparents.”Seacrest continued to make fun of the fact that Michael was wearing no shirt and a blazer until Ripa was finished reading.

“‘Michael respects his father’s work ethic,’”She read aloud and then looked confused. “He worked one day last week.”Next, she addressed Michael and said: “I always considered you just, like, a handsome, lovely fellow; conscientious, hard-working, diligent, respectful. I had no idea you were considered sexy.”
Seacrest claimed, “Something to be proud of.”Ripa replied with another joke “Well, I always found his father to be sexy.”Consuelos and Consuelos are married since 1996.
