Two is always better than one according to Kelly Ripa.

The daytime television host shared her family’s Christmas card and let’s just say she has a pretty unique and hilarious strategy.

The Christmas card featured two families

This year, Ripa decided to go an interesting route when designing her family’s Christmas card. Instead of going with the typical family photo wishing relatives and friends a happy holiday, the talk show host decided to feature husband’s, Mark Consuelos, TV family.

The photo includes Consuelos alongside his Riverdale co-stars Marisol Nichols, who plays his wife, and Camilla Mendes, who plays his daughter.

Ripa wrote, “Tired of fighting with the kids over the holiday card photo. Problem solved! Thanks, @camimendes @marisolnichols @instasuelos (swipe to see actual family and don’t forget to read the fine print!).

The photo is so beautiful who wouldn’t want to feature this TV family on their Christmas cards? Ripa took it up a notch by including a hilarious little excerpt at the bottom of the photo.

“From our family to yours (No actual wives and children were used in this photo)”.

On the back of the Christmas card, Ripa included an actual photo of the Consuelos family. Ripa and Consuelos stand smiling alongside their three children, Michael, 21, Lola, 17, and Joaquin, 15. At the bottom of the photo, it reads, “Love, The Consuelos’ (ACTUAL FAMILY)”.

Kelly Ripa wasn’t the only one who was proud of her work

Kelly Ripa wasn’t the only one who thought her work was genius. Mark Consuelos took to Instagram to praise his wife for her unique tactic. He wrote, “My poor wife has resorted to using my TV family as our holiday card. Personally, I think it’s her best work.”

The Consuelos children showed a little disdain for their mother’s hilarious action. Lola Consuelos commented “WTF” under her parent’s posts, but we’re pretty sure she found it a little funny as well!

Camilla Mendes commented on Consuelos’ post stating, “As your newly adopted daughter, I’m a little hurt that I wasn’t included in the ‘actually family’ photo,”.

It’s a family affair

The Consuelos’ happen to be very close with the Riverdale cast and a Mark isn’t the only one who has been seen on the hit television show.

Michael Consuelos played the younger very of Consuelos’ character, Hiram Lodge, on a special throwback episode during Season 3. Kelly Ripa will soon be seen on the show as she has recently filmed her cameo as Hiram Lodge’s mistress, Mrs. Mulwray.

Ripa wrote, “It’s a family affair……..Hiram’s mistress. 23 years of auditioning for a role i was born to play. Coming soon to the @thecwriverdale”. Ripa’s character is said to be, “Confident and tough… she’s a beautiful, icy, femme fatale who gets caught up in a conspiracy that’s much bigger than she initially realized,” according to Entertainment Tonight.

The Consuelos clan happens to love watching their father play the wicked Hiram Lodge and Ripa recently revealed that her children love seeing their dad on Riverdale. Kelly Ripa told Jimmy Fallon while on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon,  “So, Veronica — she’s 16 also — and she drinks mimosas at breakfast. My daughter’s like, ‘Dad never lets me drink mimosas at breakfast.’ And I go, ‘Yeah, because he’s a real father and that’s a character on TV.’”

This family is all sorts of amazing!
