On her morning TV show, Kelly Ripa calls her oldest son Michael “He who must not be named.”
She might just call him “Stretch.”
Out with her family in SoHo this week, a photographer caught the shy, 15-year-old Michael towering head and shoulders over his diminutive mom.
He appears nearly as tall as matinee-idol dad, actor Mark Consuelos.
Kelly beamed as Michael wraps an arm around his younger brother, Joaquin.
After 10 years of telling cute family stories about raising her good-looking brood, Kelly tells viewers that Michael now forbids her to use his name on the air because it embarrasses him with his friends — hence the nickname.
Still, Michael made his acting debut last spring in a video for Will Ferrell’s comedy Web site Funny or Die.
The video, called “The Bensonhurst Spelling Bee” starred his mother and father.
