Ripa also captured a photo of her son "casually chatting" with his school's commencement speaker: Gayle King!

As Joaquin is the youngest child in the family, Ripa noted in another photo that she and Consuelos, 50, will soon be "empty nesters" when Joaquin leaves for college.

In March, Joaquin decided he'll be attending the University of Michigan, where he will be part of the wrestling team.

Last month, Joaquin marked another milestone in his high school career and headed off to prom.

The proud parents shared photos of their son getting ready for prom night with his date. In the photos, Joaquin sported a sleek black tuxedo, which Ripa said belonged to his father.

"Prom Night 2021. Joaquin and Melissa. 💕💕" the Live with Kelly and Ryan host captioned her own post.

Ripa also posted several photos of Joaquin getting ready for the big night on her Story, including a few sweet snaps of his dad helping him adjust his tux. She also included a photo of them posing with their son, as well as some shots of Joaquin receiving his boutonnière made up of beautiful white flowers.
